Super-techno experimentalists Underworld, featuring Karl Hyde and Rick Smith, are back with a new album Oblivion with Bells and a UK tour which arrives at UEA, Norwich, this Wednesday (7.30pm).

Underworld are best remembered for their groundbreaking album Dubnobasswithmyheadman which was released in 1993. The album kick started a period for Underworld that took in gold discs and Top of the Pops, underground remixes and sessions with U2.

Their biggest success came in 1996 with single Born Slippy which featured on the Trainspotting soundtrack. The song installed itself at number two in the UK charts and shot the album Second Toughest in the Infants into the chart.

An incredible 27 years after their birth in Romford, Essex as a trio and 15 years after they pressed up their debut single, Karl Hyde and Rick Smith are still enjoying the ride.

Oblivion with Bells, which is set for release on October 15, has been recorded over five years in hotel rooms around the world, in Abbey Road Studios, in a back bedroom in Romford, and a pig shed in deepest rural Essex.
