Music Notes

Don't lose your Tampa this spring

WITH their seventh album waiting in the wings double Grammy-nominated rockers Underoath, pictured, are itching to leave the warmth of Florida behind to shake The Leadmill's foundations.

(Disambiguation) will be released through Roadrunner Records on April 4 with new drummer Daniel Davison (ex-Norma Jean) added to the ranks.

"We think (Disambiguation) is our best record by far," says posh-sounding frontman Spencer Chamberlain from his home in Tampa. "I'd say to fans, you may have heard Underoath but you've never heard Underoath like this.

"When we play it live, it will show that Underoath is and always has been the sum of its parts. I couldn't be more proud of this record and happier with where we are as a band."

The nine-date tour has them on Leadmill Road on April 13.

Homecoming show on Horizon

THEY have circled the planet a couple of times since they last played their home city of Sheffield but Bring Me The Horizon have confirmed their O2 Academy dbut.

The Stocksbridge rockers hit a new level with their lavishly-titled third album, including landing the number one spot in Australia's ARIA charts. There Is A Hell... also scored well in the US, Japan and the UK to give the quintet their most successful record yet. They follow that with their first Sheffield date in years on May 4 when support will come from Architects, who have been touring with Devil Sold His Soul.

DSHS play Corporation on February 11, confirms singer Ed Gibbs: "It's been a long time coming. Can't wait to play a lot of the new stuff and play some new venues."

Wilder times from unlikely bunch

TO say that The Wilders have won a reputation on their travels is a slight understatement.

In the words of one reviewer who caught them in the USA: "If this were old Salem, they'd be burned at the stake. They play like they're possessed."

Six years since "the hillbilly hurricane" from Kansas City first hit the UK, this highly-charged act find The Green Room for a Sheffield debut on January 30.

Their first sell-out run during Edinburgh Festival Fringe saw them leave with a coveted Herald Angel for outstanding contribution, leading to the main stages of major European festivals.

Most recent record Someone's Got To Pay bagged them the Alt-Country Album Of The Year title.

Their fifth album, due in the Spring, is preceded by an EP taster.
