“Under” will get its world-wide digital release on August 26th through Portland, Oregon based Reverb Records. The EP features a song by legendary Australian band The Angels (aka “Angel City” in the USA). The Upsidedown’s version of “Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again” is a tribute to The Angels’ enigmatic singer Doc Neeson, who died earlier this year. The song will be released on August 26th, a couple of days ahead of the band’s live debut on Australian soil as part of their down-under tour with The Dandy Warhols.
The original version of “Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again” was an all-out punk-rock-n-roll brawl of a song, that had Australian crowds taking the song into their own hands with a chorus response of “No way, get fucked, fuck off!!” The Upsidedown of course took their own approach.
Rounding out the EP are demo versions of three songs from their 2004 debut album, which catch the band at their psychedelic and garage band best. The fifth song rounding out the release is a new version of the surreal and MBV inspired “Souldiving,” which originally appeared on an obscure Reverb Records’ compilation from 2002.
The band released their debut album, Trust Electricity, in 2004 on Reverb Records followed by the critically acclaimed Human Destination in 2008, which was recorded at The Dandy Warhols’ Odditorium. The band’s 2010 release The Town With Bad Wiring was recorded with the Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Collin Hegna at Revolver Studios with guest appearances from R.E.M.’s Peter Buck and Dandy Warhol Peter Holmstrom. Their music has been featured on the television programs True Blood, Sons of Anarchy, The Vampire Diaries, Californication, Life Unexpected, What About Brian, and Trauma with an upcoming appearance on the new Showtime show, Ray Donovan.
The Upsidedown has toured with a few big names in their day, including The Jesus and Mary Chain, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Psyhcadelic Furs, David J, The Decemberists, The Black Angels, The Dears and Spindrift among many others.
