Occasionally, a band comes onto the scene that stands the test of time. That band is Undergone- a band of brothers that has endured the ups and downs of adolescence and the music business.
Over the course of the past half-decade, they have gone from from playing in their backyards in front of their parents to playing sold-out shows across California. These boys have determination on their minds and in their hearts.
In the Summer of 2007, Undergone independently released their second full-length LP "Spring Break '99.” Chock-full of catchy songs, the album found great success tearing up the Clear Channel Charts, reaching Top 20 in four different categories. They were also on the MySpace charts for several weeks. The album includes the singles "Overdrive," "11:11 (Perfect Time of Night)," "More Than Meets the Eye," and has spawned several fan favorites.
Consisting of Patrick Hopkins (Vocals), Evan Carr (Guitar/Vocals), Greg Hopkins (Bass/Vocals), Paul Carr (Drums), and the recent addition of Mike Duell (Guitar/Vocals), they are more than just your average local band; they are a tight knit family whose love and passion for each other and for music has been the key to their success.
Positive feedback and interest from Atlantic Records, Fueled By Ramen, Lit, Yellowcard, Loren Israel (A&R for Virgin, Epic, Warner Bros. Records & Producer of Jimmy Eat World, Sugarcult, Plain White T's), and others proves that this band will do great things in the very near future.
Undergone was recently filmed by MTV for an upcoming reality show, and just finished their follow up to 2007's “Spring Break ’99” album. A new EP titled, "Rock 'N' Roll Ain't Dead" will be released in August. The EP includes the new single "We Are," and will include their previous single “The Day That I Met You,” the video for which can be viewed via YouTube.
