10 years on from their debut album "Raise The Alarm", The Sunshine Underground have announced their fairwell tour which kicks off at The Lemon Tree.
The Sunshine Underground are an English alternative dance band based in Leeds. They play a variety of pop, alternative and electronic music, and to date have released three full-length albums.
Their debut album was described by The Guardian as “every bit as jerkily compulsive as The Rapture’s House of Jealous Lovers” - surfed the new rave wave into the UK’s wider consciousness. The cultural permeation spread even further when Sony Records released the album in Japan and their song “Put You In Your Place” was a big hit. Two sold out tours resulted in a cult following of which the quite bizarre stories include boxes of Yorkshire tea being regularly waved in the air at gigs.
Four years of touring, writing and recording passed before the band released their 2010 sophomore “Nobody’s Coming To Save You”. Their trademark explosiveness was still evident, but this was a more rhythmic and patient affair, with tracks like ‘Here It Comes’ and ‘We’ve Always Been Your Friends’ showcasing a distinct artistry in the band’s songwriting. Another four years passed since then and they returned with their third album “The Sunshine Underground" with Uncut describing it as “An almighty album exploding in colour with it soaring in true techno fashion, it’s a blast of sunshine with an almighty anthemic punch”.
