New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Are you bummin hard that you missed out on the Warped Tour anniversary shows this summer? Well, Sounds of the Underground, a new alternative music television show, might just cure what ails you.

Sounds of the Underground is the first and only alternative music show focused on exposing up-and-coming artists while showcasing them alongside major artists and international talent. Developed by Johnny Zirkel, and airing on CBS, Sounds of the Underground is seeking to bring music to a starving audience once more.

Tired of typical music industry politics keeping bands from growing, Zirkel decided to develop the show as a way to give artists of all levels the opportunity to reach new fans based solely on talent and drive, and nothing else. With the decline of festivals focused around the genre, Zirkel hopes that Sounds will fill that gap to help artists and fans connect and build relationships with each other once again. The 'underground' scene is not dead, and they are here to make sure it stays alive.

"Not one artist on Sounds Of The Underground had to do anything other than be talented and driven to be on the show," Zirkel tells Alternative Press in the official announcement. "They didn't have to pay anything or sell tickets or win a contest or have a crazy number of followers or have a label. They just had to be talented and driven."

Some acts appearing on Sounds of The Underground include:
August Burns Red, Frank Iero, The Wildfires Projekt, Halifax (reunion set), Emarosa, Craig Owens/Chiodos, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Sleeptalk.

Along with the announcement of the show, Zirkel has created an Indiegogo where fans will have a chance to own a piece of television and music history. Some items available are autographed guitars, limited edition merchandise, and even a chance to co-host an episode.
The five episode series will begin airing on September 5 in select markets on CBS, with nationwide availability the following Saturday on YouTube.
