Umberto + support from The Southern Tenant

UMBERTO (USA) + Support @ EDINBURGH: The Banshee Labyrinth
THU 1ST MAY, 2014 Doors at 7:30pm – First act onstage 8pm

Umberto, LA’s synth overlord is back here in Edinburgh this year on Thursday 1st May and he’s returning with a new release on Not Not Fun, a conceptual live-show and a couple of soundtracks.

A true master of the horror film soundtrack aesthetic, Umberto’s music is a hypnotic, all-consuming journey, reeling you into a foggy, neon-lit world of graveyards, stalkers, haunted houses, witches and blood-stained corpses. Evoking the unsettling progressive rock of Goblin and the sinister, dystopian synth-work of John Carpenter, his acclaimed releases have garnered considerable praise for their staggering, gothic take on italo disco and new-wave synth pop, recreating the brooding intensity of a Dario Argento soundtrack through the cyclical melodies and throbbing rhythms he shares with his closest contemporaries, Zombi and Gatekeeper.

Last year’s show sold out in advance so make sure you get your ticket asap…

Support act ‘The Southern Tenant’ is a spin off project from Edinburgh folk/bluegrass collective Southern Tenant Folk Union and features Pat McGarvey from the band joined onstage by Barney Strachan and Steve Ironside. You can hear some work in progress versions of the music to be performed here….
