UNDERGROUND EMPIRE + CUBA + FRANTIC ACTION + MILLION EMPIRE + UNCHANGED
Underground Empire are a band who strive for a brand new sound- utilising a plethora of influences and an eclectic palette of sounds to create something truly unique.
With elements from traditional classic rock and modern indie right through to reggae and trip hop.
Their material strikes a balance between raucous rock n roll and haunting melodic meanders.
There’s something for everyone amongst their catalogue of songs. A band for all music lovers.
CUBA is a new musical project formed in Brighton (UK) by two members of Red Cloud, Pablo Alvarez (Bame) and Ivan Montesano (Cuko).
Having played throughout Europe in the past years (Spain, Germany, France, Belgium, UK) CUBA is currently focusing its activity in England, particularly London and Birmingham.
Its sound is hard to classify, but it takes influences from sludge-garage-noisy-grunge rock, Latin American rhythms, Spanish folk music and transnational sounds in general.

Frantic Action is just a dirty stain on this country’s lingerie.
The foundations of this band first appeared in the summer of 2010.
A drastic line-up change & a few years down the line, from the ruins of SuperWreck, they bring to you the official sound of the Frantic Action!
Influences include Sublime, Rob Zombie, The Doors and The Offspring.

Million Empire came hurtling onto the Midlands music scene in October 2008 like a starved lion released from a cage with a need to vent pure emotion through music. Lacking in direct-to-vein, sincere alternative music, the scene was awash with mediocre, stale metal bands and bland-but-catchy pop kids. What set Million Empire apart was that their music was honest, unintentionally difficult to pigeon-hole and not trying to be something that it’s not.
Drawing on influences from the band’s collective love of 90’s alt-rock and singer/guitarist Wes Knight’s love of singer-songwriters, the band cultivated a sound that juxtaposed thunderous rampaging choruses with sensitive, whispered verses. Helped by drummer Paulie Willis’ distinctively incendiary drumming style, the band soon gained a reputation for being the heaviest melodic band in town.

Unchanged are Adam Martin, Liam Medlicott, Chris Harris and Luke Watton. Originally formed by Adam and Chris in 2012 after they met whilst studying music, Unchanged had a few different members before Luke joined in 2014 and then Liam in 2016.
They’ve played at a number of venues around the West Midlands most noticeably The Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton and headlining The 02 Academy, Birmingham in 2017. They released their first EP ‘All That We Have Known’ in 2016 and have recently finished recording their latest EP ‘The Ouroborus and Obsolescence’ due for release over the summer.
