Incorporating a heady blend of influences from across the musical spectrum, Under A Banner combine intelligent composition with Adam Broadhurst’s coruscating lyrics, producing a hard, uncompromising sound with powerful injections of raw emotion.
Their previous releases have received considerable acclaim: their 2014 album Close to the Clouds was described by Liverpool Sound and Vision as “an album of great maturity and depth”, and Midland Mosh praised their “great vocals, talented musicians, and a nice unique style”. Under a Banner’s fourth official release, the EP Victory Time, was awarded a five-star review and the coveted accolade of EP of the Month by Ryan’s Gig Guide, and its tracks have had considerable airplay on local radio stations.
The Wild Places raises the bar even higher, with a much bigger sound stage, produced by Alistair Jamieson at Park Studios in Birmingham, and mastered by Jon Astley, who has worked with The Who, Peter Gabriel, The Rolling Stones and many others.
