Under A Banner have been making powerful, passionate and poetic alternative rock for almost three years. This ‘alternative’ folk-tinged band have forged not just another band but something in which people are becoming emotionally invested in.
The last year has seen the band (who perform as a full electric/acoustic unit or as a trimmed-down acoustic 3 piece) support New Model Army; have their music used by the charity Safe World for Women; be played on BBC Introducing, BBC Nan Gael, dozens of online and FM radio stations, including Stafford FM; be featured in Indie Shaman magazine; play many gigs and festivals and gather the support of thousands of loyal fans in such diverse locations as South America, Poland and Indonesia.
The band was given the official go-ahead to use the release of their song Some Stories to support the charity Help For Heroes. With over 17000 Twitter followers and a considerable following both locally and much further afield, Under A Banner are growing rapidly.
