Ulterior’s long-awaited debut album is to be released on March 7, 2011 with a string of live dates planned across Europe and the UK and an exclusive album launch show at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, London on Wednesday, March 9 with support from Islington Boys Club and Neurotic Mass Movement…
The album, titled ‘Wild In Wildlife’ effortlessly wears its references on its sleeve. It is an unmistakable stadium sound synthesis that sonically falls somewhere between Simple Minds, The Sisters Of Mercy and Billy Idol.
Recorded and mixed by long-serving band producer Zlaya Hadzic (Sonic Youth / Tortoise) with two tracks also mixed by Robert Harder (Whitey / Brian Eno / Kylie), the album contains seductive hooks and the vocals shine clearly amid the storm, all of which is set to a vicious mechanoid foundation of synthesizers and drum machines; a move that has already set Ulterior crucially apart from their contemporaries.
The album is to be released on Speed Records and will be available through both Rough Trade and online through the band’s brand new website – www.ulteriorlondon.com. A signed, limited edition hand-silk-screened print comes with the pre-ordered CD and a new t-shirt design issued to coincide with the album release.
