** ULTRASOUND HEAD OFF TO EUROPE¦
IN THE COMPANY OF THE DARKNESS!! **
**NEW LONDON HEADLINE SHOW ANNOUNCED FOR THE SPRING, TOO!!**


?ìWeve been away for a while / But we were never in style¬¶¬ù ‚ Welfare State

They said it would never happen. And by they we mean the band, their friends and anyone in the music industry who had ever worked with them. Yet somehow on September 20th 2012 Ultrasound found themselves headlining the Scala in London Town for the launch of their second album, Play For Today, fizzing with energy, passion, panache and the occasional Very Long Song just like they had been before, if not better. Because they were back with a new attitude, back with ten new songs of unrelenting epicness and an almost unexpected degree of excellence¦back, in fact, where they had always belonged.

We were pretty impressed, and we werent the only ones. A certain Mr Justin Hawkins was so smitten by Ultrasounds mighty sound he has invited them on tour with a little band of his called The Darkness, and that tour looks like this:

February 7th BRISTOL Fleece (Ultrasound headline show)
February 9th CAMBRIDGE Portland Arms (Ultrasound headline show)
February 16th COPENHAGEN Amager
February 17th STOCKHOLM Tyroz
February 19th TAMPERE Pokkahive
February 20th HELSINKI Circus
February 22nd GOTHENBURG Tradgarn
February 23rd OSLO Rockefeller
February 24th KRISTIANSAND Kick Scene
February 26th HAMBURG Grunenspan
February 27th AMSTERDAM Paradiso
June 1st LONDON ISLINGTON Assembly Hall

Happily for us and indeed the good burghers of Northern Europe Ultrasounds 2011 comeback single Welfare State / Sovereign gave them a taste for the creative juices hey had never lost, just gently misplaced for a decade. Having rediscovered their thirst for gargantuan pop hooks, outlandishly cosmic rock freakouts and biting political commentary the resulting Play For Today opus condensed 13 years of frustration into 53 minutes worth of wondrous widescreen inspiration, sometimes with a mournful colliery brass band.

Even better still, the quintets appetite for construction shows no signs of abating, as there will be a UK tour in the spring and a new single from Play For Today to coincide. Ultrasound are Tiny Woods (vocals / guitar), Richard James Green (guitars / vocals), Vanessa Best (bass / vocals), Bob Birch (keyboards) and Andy Peace (drums). Here they are. Again. Now bloody well entertain them¦
