Sydney pop punk band Undercast are releasing their sophomore EP ‘Temperamental’ (featuring lead single of the same name) on March 22nd, 2016.
The much-anticipated follow up to debut EP ‘Welcome Home’ – which saw the band support acts such as State Champs (US), Trophy Eyes & Forever Came Calling (US) to sold out crowds – ‘Temperamental’ sees the band build upon their pop punk sound.
Self-produced by bassist Brandon Lung and mixed by Sam Guiana (Broadside, Like Pacific), the 6 track release ranges from emotional alternative rock (Hold Tight) to energetic fast skater punk (Pressure), and the record’s melodic and heartfelt moment in ‘Prospect’.
The bands debut single ‘Greenway’ coupled with a cover of The Killer’s ‘Mr Brightside’ has seen the band receive over 100,000 combined YouTube & Bandcamp streams, as well as over 3000 followers across the band’s social media sites.
Undercast are due to hit the road across the country in the next few months in support of the new EP.

“Pop-punk that doesn’t suck…the band is starting to come out of that young, adolescent stage and into their golden years. As such, this release is a serious step up for the boys”. – Alex Sievers
“Undercast, the newcomers to the recently rejuvenated Australian pop-punk scene, hit the stage running with a string of energetic numbers in what was a commendable opening performance. ‘Faster and louder’ was the game plan from the start and no one was complaining as they tore through the majority of the tracks off their Temperamental EP including Pressure and a particularly memorable rendition of Hold Tight. The absence of nasally and whiny vocals from lead man Michael Cross made a nice change from the usual vocal style that typifies the genre”. – Peter Tuskan
