TYPE UK reach final of Underdog

TYPE, Weston’s own emerging indie rock band will compete in the Grand Final of The Underdog, at the o2 Academy in Bristol on the 2nd September; doors open at 18.30. TYPE will be competing against five other finalists from different genres from, rap, rock and metal bands - who have all battled their way through three rounds of competition to become the six finalists.

TYPE will perform five of their own high energy, crowd pleasing songs during their twenty minute set including ‘Fantasy’, ‘Race you to the top’ and ‘Ask me Twice’. These songs have electrified audiences over the last four years at venues including The Louisiana, The Fleece and even Banksy’s world renowned Dismaland exhibition in the band’s hometown of Weston.

“This is the second time we’ve entered the competition, we are buzzing to be in the final and are so grateful to our mates who have turned up each round and to Jon Spencer for setting up the event. Competition is high but we would really like to win. The Underdog has been brilliant for us because we’ve learnt how to consistently promote ourselves over social media which we were bog at before. I’d definitely recommend it to any unsigned bands” Harry Binding (Frontman)

TYPE have been helped by a fantastic mentoring scheme M.A.S. and Factory Studios in Bristol - who provide advice to thirty up and coming selected bands each year. With their help TYPE have have already been in the studio and will be releasing their first anticipated single later in the year.

Equality and Diversity Statement


MAS Records is committed to creating a culture that respects and values each others’ differences, that promotes dignity, equality and diversity and that encourages individuals to develop and maximise their true creative potential.


It is our policy to treat all artists, musicians, employees, customers and associated parties fairly and equally regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, trans-gender status, marital status, civil partnership status, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religious belief, political belief, age or disability.



MAS Records is committed to promoting equality and accessibility in all facets of the artist development scheme.

As we are aligned with RSL to deliver our artist development programme we encourage all submitted evidence to be in video format in what we call the 'vegetarian approach' - everyone eats vegetarian! Submitted video evidence is more accessible for everyone as written evidence or other types of assessment can be difficult for some individuals. Video provides a level playing field for all. 


However, if you do need further assisted learning support (ALS) to complete evidence needs for the scheme this is available through contact with the MAS programme leader Stuart Eaves at our main Kidderminster campus via the number or email below.
