Audio samples are now available of UNDERCOVER‘s entire “Branded” remaster via the Intense Millennium Records website at this location.

Few records contain the level of emotional resonance or impact that UNDERCOVER‘s “Branded” did. After the entrance of new vocalist Sim Wilson, the band stepped up their game several notches. Having already begun to shed the earlier pop-punk sounds of their first two albums, the band’s fourth studio release showed immense growth and maturity as they shifted toward a layered rock sound, incorporating hard rock, new wave, heavier punk rock, and even gentle pop flourishes. The lyrics became more mature as well, touching on subjects like depression, battling temptation, rejection of God, and even a song about the crucifixion of Christ from the perspective of Pontius Pilate. All in all, perhaps one of the greatest rock albums of the 1980’s.

On January 25th 2011 “Branded” will be released world-wide for the first time as a stand alone album on compact disc.
