We succeeded in our Pledge Music crowd funding campaign!
Yes, our target was reached and exceeded! All those wonderful people who pledged will have received their pre-release download of our second album ‘Close to the Clouds’ already.
Anyone who pledged for either physical incentives (merchandise, the album on CD and other gifts) will receive them within a couple of weeks by post. All those who pledged for experience-based rewards (drum/poetry lessons, meet-and-greet with the band etc) will be contacted shortly to arrange fulfilment of their pledges. Once again, massive thanks to everyone who supported us in this very important milestone event in Under A Banner’s history.

Under A Banner have been making powerful, passionate and poetic alternative rock for around three years. This ‘alternative’ folk-tinged band have forged not just another band but something in which people are becoming emotionally invested.
The band features Adam Broadhurst- vocals and guitars, Jonathan ‘Jip’ Price – guitars and backing vocals, Simon Hill -bass guitar, Tim Wilson- drums, percussion and backing vocals, Kat Davis- keyboards.
Career highlights for the band so far include supporting New Model Army; having their music used by the charity Safe World for Women and award winning Californian author Rachel Thompson; being played on BBC Introducing West Midlands and Shropshire, BBC Nan Gael, dozens of online and FM radio stations, including Stafford FM and the increasingly popular Wyldwood Radio; being featured in Indie Shaman magazine and dozens of popular music blogs including Echoes and Dust, Here Comes the Flood, House in the Sand and Their Music Cottage.
The band continue to play as many gigs and festivals as possible and are gathering the support of literally thousands of loyal fans in their native UK. They are also beginning to build a following in Western Europe and North America but are also attracting attention and support from further afield thanks, in no small part, to a Twitter following which has exceeded 30000.
The next phase in the history of Under A Banner will be dependent on a combination of Fate and bloody hard work. Please come and see us live.
