The Union Underground
From The Metal Band Wiki
The Union Underground was formed 1996 in San Antonio, TX by Bryan Scott and Patrick Kennison. The name Union Underground was an altered form of the name of their studio, which they called Studio Underground. They sold more than 5,000 copies of their 1997 selftitled album. This naturally caught the eye of Columbia A&R exec, John Weakland, who later signed them to Columbia Records. The band released their debut major label album An Education in Rebellion on July 18, 2000. The album sold nearly 400,000 copies with hit singles including Turn Me On Mr. Deadman, Revolution Man, and Killing the Fly.
The Union Underground performed at the 2001 Ozzfest and other venues worldwide after this.
In March 2002, The Union Underground recorded the song the song Across the Nation for the album WWF Forceable Entry. It was also used as the theme song for RAW until October 2006.
On June 25, 2002, the band released Live...One Nation Underground, a live performance CD. This would be their final release before Portrait Records went out of business in 2002.
That same year, Union Underground ended.
John Moyer currently plays bass for Disturbed, Patrick Kennison is with the band Heaven Below, and Bryan Scott has started a band called Cult to Follow.
