Who: Manchester-born, Berlin-based
group led by Craig Dyer

Album: THE FALLING – 10th LP
Out: 12 March via Fuzz Club
Order info: here

Info: “The new album sees Craig and the band trade their acerbic post-punk
melancholy for a more refined and stripped-back sound which enters the world
of romantic, shadowy folk-noir. A marked departure from the primal intensity
often heard on the band’s previous work, The Falling showcases a softer, more
cinematic musical landscape shaped by acoustic guitars, piano, accordion and
a heavy presence of violin and string arrangements.”

Singles: A Sorrowful Race / Vergiss Mich Nicht / For You Are The One

British psych-rockers THE UNDERGROUND YOUTH formed by ringleader
Craig Dyer have been around for a while. Between 2006 and today they
produced nine albums with last year’s Montage Images Of Lust & Fear
as one of their most arresting performances.

And the band already has another LP called THE FALLING
canned and hitting the streets on March 12.

Last December we got lead-single A Sorrowful Race, a moving and gripping
ballad and here comes another new one titled FOR YOU ARE THE ONE.

Dyer about the song: “I wanted this bouncing, drunken, upbeat track for the record,
something unlike anything I’d written before. The addition of the violin to the album
really enhanced each and every track, but for me this one stands out as the song most
affected by this change in sound.”

The band sounds like an electrical country & western combo playing a ballroom
waltz with a cracking violin-driven swagger. Gloriously surprising, but absolutely
great. I love it and I’m sure you will too.

Heart-Stopping Introspection – THE UNDERGROUND YOUTH With New Single ‘A SORROWFUL RACE’

Its follow-up longplayer called The Falling is planned for a March 2021 release.
And here’s the captivating lead-single A SORROWFUL RACE.

Craig says in a press statement: “This track is something of a personal attack on myself,
and the narcissistic frustration at those whose success has overshadowed my own. It could
be perceived as egoistic, but the idea with this record was to be as honest as possible lyrically, that included addressing the feelings that were maybe harder to face.”

A Sorrowful Race is a plain-speaking reflection of solipsism and gnawing jealousy.
A brutally honest and poignant introspection. A magnific ballad that makes you silent.
A heart-stopping pearl straight from the soul. An emotive tour de force. A spellbinding experience. Wow!

“Why he’s achieved so much more than I,
in such a short amount of time, well I’ll
never understand why, I’ll just keep writing
line after line after line after line”

New album MONTAGE IMAGES OF LUST & FEAR out 29th March via Fuzz Club

British Cult Post Punks THE UNDERGOUND YOUTH Share New Inflammable Single ‘THE DEATH OF THE AUTHOR’…

Brand new sonic impulses

6 February 2019

Inspired by Bob Dylan turning poetry into songs English guitarist/vocalist/songwriter
CRAIG DYER started making music back in 2008. With his band THE UNDERGOUND YOUTH he developed a worldwide cult status following the DIY production of a series of compelling albums and memorable live performances. Their ninth LP, entitled MONTAGE IMAGES OF LUST & FEAR will be out on 29th March via Fuzz Club. Mastermind Craig says the new record is “inspired by the succession of experiences we are increasingly dealt by the media. Sex, violence, love, suspicion, desire, distress, etc. The album acts as a montage itself,
the subject of each song dealing with an aspect of either lust or fear. Like flicking through the channels on a television. Until in the end you are overcome by white noise. Static.”

Here’s lead single THE DEATH OF THE AUTHOR. “A macabre industrial ballad following
the final hours of a down on his luck write
r” reveals Craig. It’s a soul-stirring, hypnotic roller coaster exploding fervidly every time the raging chorus kicks in. Wow! Stupefying stuff
with a fevered and delirious impact. Experience the inflammable tour de force right here…
