UK Rockers THE UNDIVIDED To Perform @ Canadian Music Week + Debut New EP ‘Satellites’ May 5th
CMW Show Dates: (more tba)
The UK’s alternative wave of infectious rock known as THE UNDIVIDED will be hitting venues in Toronto, ON during this year’s Canadian Music Week ON May 5th and 7th with more showcases to be announced. This will be THE UNDIVIDED‘s second appearance at Canadian Music Week, which the band is also using as their platform to launch their much anticipated EP ‘Satellites’ set for release on May 6th. The three song EP with two live bonus tracks was produced and written with Dan Weller of SIKTH with the first single / video ‘The Invincible’released last October. ‘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 band comments on their appearance at CMW:
“We have been counting down the days to getting back to CMW since the moment the wheels went back up on the plane to return home last year. It’s just such an amazing atmosphere and a great opportunity for a new band. We’ve been busy writing and recording our new EP ‘Satellites’ to release especially for our trip out to CMW. Canadians will be the first people to hear it live and get a copy! This EP is a journey with its lighter moments and its darker ones. It’s a more mature sound with each new bit of music. Also we wanted to challenge ourselves by doing something different and not re do the same stuff just because it works. We only wanted to put out new tracks we really believe in. No space for filler. As long as we have the need to make music there will be more.”
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.
