New TV Show ‘Sounds of the Underground’ Announced

CBS has announced a new show called Sounds of the Underground. You can watch the commercial here, and the full press release is below, but the band’s confirmed for the show so far include: August Burns Red, Badxchannels, Frank Iero, The Skints, Halifax (reunion set), Emarosa, Unwritten Law, Silent Planet, Craig Owens/Chiodos, and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

Are you bummin hard that you missed out on the Warped Tour anniversary shows this summer? Well, Sounds of the Underground, a new punk music television show, might just cure what ails you.

Sounds of the Underground is the first and only alternative music show focused on exposing up-and-coming artists while showcasing them alongside major artists and international talent. Developed by Johnny Zirkel, and airing on CBS, Sounds of the Underground is seeking to bring music to a starving audience once more.

Tired of typical music industry politics keeping bands from growing, Zirkel decided to develop the show as a way to give artists of all levels the opportunity to reach new fans based solely on talent and drive, and nothing else. With the decline of festivals focused around the genre, Zirkel hopes that Sounds will fill that gap to help artists and fans connect and build relationships with each other once again. The ‘underground’ scene is not dead, and they are here to make sure it stays alive.

Some acts appearing on Sounds of The Underground include:
August Burns Red, Badxchannels, Frank Iero, The Skints, Halifax (reunion set), Emarosa, Unwritten Law, Silent Planet, Craig Owens/Chiodos, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

The five episode series will begin airing on September 5 in select markets on CBS, with nationwide availability the following day on YouTube.
