Sonic Boom Six Record 4th Album & Plan New Tour

Posted in Music, News by undergroundengland on February 16, 2009

With a hectic 2008 out of the way, Sonic Boom Six are currently digesting the festive treats with a pair of unbranded slippers and full throttle music detox.

Yeah right. They will however be snugly tucked into new Underground shoes and well within in their comfort zone by getting back into the studio.

In recent months, SBS have gained a new member and additional six-stringer in the form of ex-Howards Alias trombone master, Nick Horne. So after a mammoth amount of touring with an extra guitarist no less, The Boom have graced an impressive amount of stages across the world.

Going from Japan to America, playing festivals with the likes of Blondie, and even starting their own fully independent record label, the Mancunian punks will be slowing down for no one as they set about the writing process for a new record, their forth full-length album which they are currently recording in Devon.

With guitarist Ben promising to ‘bring the rock’ in their video interview for our site, the new tunes will see a heavier route taken through their trademark genre maze. Excited much? We do like things heavy on planet Underground.

Don’t worry though, they won’t be cooped up the whole year, you can still check them out on some UK dates with Reggae/Ska legends The Beat, which kicks off in Oxford on March 12th…
