The Leeds three-piece burst onto the scene in 2006 with debut album Raise The Alarm, quickly becoming NME favourites alongside other bands thrown into the then huge ‘Nu Rave’ scene.

Alongside bands like Klaxons, CSS, DIOYY and New Young Pony Club, The Sunshine Underground were exciting, brash, bright and loud, gearing their guitar-driven brand of punk funk towards a dancier sound.

Now on their third album, Louder Than War, they bring their visceral live show to Bedford Esquires on Friday, October 17, along with special guests Pixel Fix and local lads The Shtooks.

The Sunshine Underground follow the announcement of their upcoming third album with the explosive single Start, just released.

The group now focus on their first love - electronic music.

Start was one of the last songs written for the third album and it is the band’s opener for their legendary live sets. The overall result is an album nobody would have expected. Hard beats and glittering synths mix with The Sunshine Underground’s original dance-punk origins to create an almighty collection of contemporary electronic songs.

Doors open for the show at 8pm.

This show is for ages 14+ and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Free aftershow party for 18+ at The Pad Nightclub.

Tickets are £13.50 in advance and on sale from Boutique Planet, Esquires and Seetickets.com and also www.thepadpresents.com
