The single ‘Invincible’ tells the story of organ donation compassionately from both sides of the giver and receiver, which is a cause the band fully supports after a fan’s mother in UK had a successful heart transplant after be on the waiting list for a long amount time plus the Welsh government in Wales deciding to pass regulation for the opt out decision got the guys highlighting to the rest of world the importance to sign up for organ donation.
“Every organ donor can save 8 lives, that is 8 families who are given hope, 8 families who don’t have to grieve, 8 families whose lives are changed.” says Sarah Todd Callender-Ferrier, the UK fan fan whom inspired THE UNDIVIDED.
THE UNDIVIDED will be releasing their EP ‘Satellites’ on May 5th to coincide with their performance during CMW and features three songs with two live bonus tracks that were produced and written with Dan Weller of SIKT.
The band comments on their appearance at CMW:
Driven by a desire to create the kind of noise people simply have to stand up and hear the most exciting- not to mention anthemic- rock act to emerge from South Wales in decades has arrived and not a moment too soon.
Inspired by the political, message-heavy words of fellow countrymen Manic Street Preachers, the instrumentation of Idlewild, and the penchant for melodic pop sensibilities evident in the likes of Mansun and Peace, The Undivided make music that’s impossible to ignore. Soaring guitar chords launch from atop punishing riffs, shuddering bass lines carry the rhythms forward, and sledgehammer drumbeats underpin this combination of harmony and electricity.
Hailing from the South Wales Valleys, the four piece (comprising lead guitarist and singer Joe Disson, percussive maestro Rhyd Mason and guitarist Lew Bray and joining in 2014 Bass guitarist Craig Prosser) formed circa 2010, born from the ashes of previous aural endeavours and built on the back of long-standing friendships. A successful meeting of minds, a period of incessant and relentless gigging followed, which saw them perform dates across the UK- including support slots for Ash, The Xcerts, Kids in Glass Houses, The Dirty Youth, IDivide and Samoans – with praise coming from Kerrang!, Rock Sound, NME and XFM, to name but a few.
Before long the trio found themselves hauled up at a cottage in rural west Wales, rehearsing and writing a good chunk of the new LP safe in the knowledge there was no phone line, no mobile signal, no broadband, and nobody to complain about their 1AM jam sessions. Evidently something went right, with the Romesh Dodangoda-produced album (Kids in Glass Houses, Funeral For A Friend), This New Day, proof of that. Garnering support from the Welsh Arts Council (which gave funding for the production), BBC Radio1 Introducing, Nation Radio, Team Rock Radio and Big Cheese, the hype is almost as big as the main-room filling tunes on the record. Thankfully though, in this case it’s deserving, with The Undivided set to fulfil their ambition of breaking with the norm to deliver truly poignant, meaningful and moving songs through expert musicianship and devastatingly honest lyricism. The band secured a sync placement for the instrumental version of ‘Headlights’ from the previous album ‘This New Day’ on the opening and closing credits of BBC 4 Royal Institute Christmas lectures, screen on 29th, 30th and 31st December 2014.
The band showcased at the 2015 Canadian Music Week in Toronto, ON and received US and Canadian College radio airplay, which has already awarded them a CMJ radio distinction. They have recently written and produced their new EP ‘Satellites’ with Dan Weller (Sikth), which is set for release on May 5th, 2016 and to be debut at their second appearance at this year’s Canadian Music Week. The EP’s infectious first single / video ‘Invincible’ tells the story of organ donation compassionately from both sides of the giver and receiver.
