      Bio

      Underworld is an English electronic group, and principal name under which duo Karl Hyde and Rick Smith have recorded together since 1980.[1] The band is perhaps best known for "Born Slippy .NUXX", a track made popular in the hit 1996 Danny Boyle film Trainspotting.

      Hyde and Smith began their musical partnership with the Kraftwerk and reggae-inspired sounds of The Screen Gemz while working together in a diner in the city of Cardiff, where both had been studying. In 1983 they recorded two albums for CBS Records with a proto-electroclash new romantic band whose name was a graphic squiggle, which (this being a relatively unknown band and many years before Prince became "Love Symbol") was soon given a pronunciation, Freur.

      Underworld's seventh studio album, Oblivion with Bells, was released on October 16, 2007.[2] The first single from the new album, "Crocodile", was released on September 5, 2007.[3] A full world tour has been announced to support the new studio album. Currently, tour dates in the United States, Europe, and Japan are scheduled for this fall, with more shows expected in the future.[4] U2's drummer Larry Mullen Jr helped out on the track Boy, Boy, Boy.

      Underworld completed the soundtrack to the Danny Boyle film, Sunshine, in late 2006.[5] Well over a year after the film's release, the official soundtrack was released on iTunes on November 25, 2008. The soundtrack is a collaboration with composer John Murphy.[6]

      On June 16, 2007, Underworld were forced to cancel their show at the Ejekt Festival in Athens, Greece. Approximately 30 masked Greek anarchists stormed the stadium while the Beastie Boys were performing. Rick Smith was one of the people injured in the ensuing violence, and he was taken to a nearby Athens hospital for treatment.[7]

      On October 19, 2007, Underworld cancelled the remaining dates of their European tour due to illness in the band.[8] The tour was picked up again on January 28, 2008, with a concert in Cologne, followed by 16 dates in Europe, including some festivals.

      On August 8, 2008, Underworld appeared at the All Points West Music & Arts Festival festival in Liberty State Park, New Jersey. Radiohead dedicated their final song Everything in its Right Place to Underworld with a special remix.

      Karl Hyde appeared with Brian Eno on the final day of the Eno curated Luminous Festival at Sydney Opera House. "Pure Scenius" consisted of three live improvised performances on the same day, featuring Eno, Hyde, Australian improv trio The Necks, electronic artist Jon Hopkins and guitarist Leo Abrahams.

      Underworld has released two new series via their underworldlive.com site, in mp3 and WAV formats. The tracks are 020202, and the phonestrap/autotrader series.

      On July 3, 2009, Underworld debuted a new song tentatively titled "Between Stars" at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Shortly before that, a post was made on the band's diary page showing a piece of paper with the song's first verse on it.
