ABOVE THE UNDERGROUND - HIGH OCTANE POWER POPSTERS RELEASE NEW EP AND CONTINUE EXTENSIVE TOURING!

Melodic Punksters ‘Above The Underground’ nationally unveil their brand new EP ‘The Fight We Won’ on 24th January 2011, through all digital sources.



Above the Underground were formed in 2008, when Brandon (Drums) and brothers Al (Guitar) and Will (Vocals) began to kick out the jams and write together. After meandering through a series of guitarists and bassists, the trio finally recruited Nick on bass and Joey on synth; both additions strongly solidified the band and helped to hone their dynamic signature sound. After countless rehearsals and extensive writing the energised quintet began to tour throughout the whole of the UK. At the end of 2009, they released their debut EP, which chalked up great responses and impressive praise from the underground press.

The bar has now been raised for ATU. Following from recent support shows with My Name is Hero, We Say Summer and I, Said the Spy, Elliot Minor, Jody Has a Hitlist, and Aled Phillips (Kids in Glass Houses), the irrepressible punksters will continue touring throughout the end of 2010 and beyond in support of their explosive new record ‘The Fight We Won’.

‘The Fight We Won’ features five fiery cuts packed with up-tempo arrangements, soaring guitars, and infectious choruses that’ll require a crowbar to prise out of your head. From the ridiculously catchy ‘We Are The Party,’ through to the EP’s namesake ‘The Fight We Won,’ the youthful melodic mobsters have produced a record that is stacked to the rafters with killer hooks and contagious kinetic energy!
