The Undivided formed in late 2009 and are from the Abergavenny in the South Wales Valleys. They are a 4 Piece Guitar band featuring: - Joe Disson: - Guitar/Vocals Lewis Bray: - Guitar/Vocals Fergus Gleeson: - Bass Guitar Rhydian Mason: - Drums/Percussion The band’s sound is centred around soaring melodies, and hooks that will stay in your head for days. To accompany this they add guitar riffs that cut like razors and drums that could sink a ship. Combining all these elements together and taking musical influences from bands such Manic Street Preachers, Idlewild and Placebo creates a sound that is nothing short of Epic. Lyrically the band’s songs deal with Love, Loss, Despair and Hope. In their 12 months together they have gigged extensively all over the UK. They have supported bands such as Ash and in August 2010 they supported People In Planes on their UK Tour. They are also supporting The Last Republic on some dates for their Album Tour in November 2010. Amongst those bands they have also played shows with upcoming bands such as The Xcerts, Tiger Please, Union Sound Set and Straight Lines. The band have started to develop a dedicated fanbase around the UK and In October the band released their Debut EP ‘Machines’ (Available on ITunes) and played a sold out show in Newport, South Wales to 150 fans. They also played an EP show upstairs in the London Garage to nearly 140 Fans. The band has received great reviews on their EP from Beth Elfyn and Huw Stevens on BBC Introducing New Music and Adam Walton BBC Radio Wales. They have been reviewed extensively by Altsounds and Plugged In magazine about their Live Shows. This year (2011) they released a new single ‘You & Me’. This was recorded at the famous Monnow Valley Studios with Tom Manning (Feeder, The Last Republic). They did many gigs across the country to support this release.
