Under the Flood

Under The Flood is a high-energy hard-hitting rock band from Central Virginia. Their dynamic sound was described by Revolver magazine as having “keen melodic interplay, regardless of whether they’re kickin’ it hard or soft.” The band provides today’s audiences with smart, but accessible rock, that appeals to even the most discriminating of taste.

Formed in 2005, brothers Matt and Dave Nadolski came together to create an honest sound that would resonate with listeners from all walks of life. The duo teamed up with local bassist Kenn Davis, Kentucky-native Brandon Sidebottom, and Russell Lee, former Deepfield drummer from Charleston, SC. With an in-your-face high-energy live show and a relentless touring ethic, Under The Flood is making their stamp in the rock industry. Their debut record ‘The Witness” was produced by Brian Craddock (Daughtry), mixed by Skidd Mills (Saliva, Saving Abel), and released worldwide by Koch Records in May 2008.

Under the Flood has recently teamed up with Join or Die Records to release their highly-anticipated Sophmore album ‘Alive In The Fire’, which was produced by Andy Waldeck (Earth To Andy) and Kevin Murphy (Tonic,Josh Gracin). The new Album showcases the group’s growth and maturity as a band. It sheds light on a darker side of Under the Flood while maintaining their trademark melodic sound and lyrical substance. The album’s first single, ‘Gravity’, hits radio nationwide in May.

Over the last ten years, rock music has seen many different phases come and go. The band is not a phase. Their songs and sound are modern, yet timeless. Under the Flood’s new album is slated for a Spring ‘10 release, followed by an onslaught of touring. This is a call to arms. Join the movement. Stand, Alive in the Fire.
