Three Underneath have been around the block but have been independent from the start. With humble beginnings, playing their first ever show at the King Kong Club Dublin, the band caught the music bug immediately. The resulting airplay on RTÉ 2XM (part of the gig ‘deal’ at the time) lead to a string of support slots, which inevitably lead to bigger gigs, most notably a Saturday night at The Workman’s Club. And the band haven’t stopped since!
In the years 2015-2018, Three Underneath started picking up some real momentum, championed by Dan Hegarty 2FM on radio, spurned on by features in Hot Press and GoldenPlec, proving themselves as a strong live band at venues in Dublin, showcasing with Pillow Queens, Brass Phantoms, supporting Otherkin and opening for Paddy Casey!
Ireland started to take notice when BBC Radio Ulster chose the Three Underneath track “His Last Words” as their radio stab for their “Across the Line” show in ‘17. With some help from IMRO, the band received nods for countless showcase events, Hard Rock Rising, Whelan’s “Ones To Watch”, NOVA “Discovered” and the Dublin Tech Summit afterparty showcase.
Proving themselves on the live stage, the band began to receive festival bookings, headlining the rock stage at K-Fest Kerry, Secret Garden stage at Arcadian Field and Electric Picnic! Three Underneath were then invited back to Electric Picnic for a second year, to perform their songs As Gaeilge in the Mindfield arena. With some help from Rossa Ó Snodaigh (of Kíla), Three Underneath translated a selection of their best songs into the Irish language and performed to a buzzing festival crowd Friday night. Shkyup!
In 2018, Three Underneath announced that they would be ceasing live activity to record a new album. That album is now complete and scheduled for release in October 2021. In the lead up to the album, the band will release a series of singles, videos, streams, live dates and have quite a few surprises planned along the way!
