Sounds of the Underground, an alternative music television show, has been announced and will be airing on CBS in September and October. The show will feature Frank Iero, August Burns Red, Halifax, Emarosa, and many more. All episodes will also be available on YouTube on the Saturday following the date they aired.
About the show, Johnny Zirkel stated:
“Not one artist on Sounds Of The Underground had to do anything other than be talented and driven to be on the show. They didn’t have to pay anything or sell tickets or win a contest or have a crazy number of followers or have a label. They just had to be talented and driven.”
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, the show is seeking to bring music to a starving audience once more. Tired of typical music industry politics keeping bands from growing, he decided to develop the show as way to give artists of all levels the opportunity to reach new fans based solely on talent and drive. With the decline of festivals focused around the genre, he hopes the show will fill that gap to help artists and fans connect and build relationships with each other.
There is an Indiegogo that gives fans the chance to own a piece of television and music industry. Some items available are autographed guitars, limited edition merchandise, and even a chance to co-host an episode of the show.
