Out with the old and in with the new! Welcome to The Channel's redesigned website, it's been given a fresh new look and we even have a new band logo to boot. Saying it's been redesigned is an understatement, the site has been demolished and completely rebuilt from the ground up.

We also have our own twitter page, youtube channel and sound cloud hosted music clips for you to comment on which we shall be populating shortly.

We hope you like the changes and invite you to join us on what we hope will be a big year for the band. Thank you for your interest and support.

The Channel are busy in the studio recording their debut album Red Sky Supernova due for release late 2012. The album is influenced by some of the bands favourite artists such as Muse, Coldplay, White Lies, A-ha, and The Killers and has a sci-fi theme running through it. There are some early demo clips of Little Lie, Panic in the Skies, and Brink which you can listen to and comment on our music page.

The band are also planning a video for song Little Lie to be filmed over the next month or so. Gigs are planned for April and onwards until the release of the Red Sky Supernova then the band will tour the album along with some covers. Keep checking back here for venues and dates!
