A new wave-influenced punk-pop band from Birmingham, England, Beat Union made their full-length recording debut in 2008 and played a long streak of live shows in support, including the summer's Warped Tour. Citing British new wave influences such as the Clash, the Police, Elvis Costello, the Jam, Squeeze, and Joe Jackson, the band is comprised of Dave Warsop (lead vocals, guitar), Dean Ashton (lead guitar, vocals), Ade Preston (bass), and Luke Johnson (drummer). Beat Union released their debut album, Disconnected, in 2008 on Science Records. The album was produced in Los Angeles by Goldfinger frontman John Feldmann, who had recently helmed the Used's Lies for Liars (2007), Atreyu's Lead Sails Paper Anchor (2007), and City Sleeps' Not an Angel (2007). In support of the album, Beat Union toured with Goldfinger, played at the Great Escape festival in Brighton, England, and joined the summer's Warped Tour, which criss-crossed the United States. ~ Jason Birchmeier~ Rovi
