After dozens and dozens of concerts around Italy, from the north to the south, from big summer stages to small clubs, ULTIMA return to their city, Pavia, and to the stage where they took their first steps, at Spaziomusica, a historic venue at the time run by the unforgettable Bruno Morani.

The date of 16 December has a special flavour for Ultima, so much so that for this evening they have decided to present exclusively to the audience of their city, the one that has followed and supported them since the beginning, a large part of the new album that will only be released next year.

Seven unreleased songs will be played at Spaziomusica, seven songs that will be part of the successor to 'Sanguemiele' (Rusty Records)their first album dated 2008, an album that earned Ultima much satisfaction: 'Sunday', the second single to be released, was in fact among the most played independent tracks on national networks in 2009, and the video for the same song (featuring rock singer Pino Scotto with a cameo) made it to the final as best video clip at MEIaward later won by Caparezza.

The year that is drawing to a close has seen Ultima as the protagonists of an excellent live season. After joining the Barley Arts roster, there have been several highlights, from the date in the company of the legendary Deep Purple in Forlì to an appearance at the prestigious Barcolana Festival in Trieste with Le Vibrazioni.

To bridge the wait between albums, Ultima released the single "We don't need words", a distorted version of the great success of Ronwho duetted with the band for the occasion.

From January, the Pavia-based line-up will be in the studio for the recording of their new album, still untitled. The sound will always be melodic rock, with electric guitars in the foreground creating captivating interweavings with electronic sounds, dynamic rhythmics and the refinement of piano notes. Finally, it should be noted that the new tracks composed by the Pavia-based line-up feature Davide Passantino on vocals, the band's former bass player, who thus joins Paolo Ciotta behind the microphone. In addition to bringing new colours to the band's music, this choice further emphasises their desire to further highlight their rock background, also confirmed by their collaboration with producer Matteo Cantaluppi (Nesli, Deasonika, Alberto Fortis, Bugo, Paolo Benvegnù...).


The ULTIMA are:

Davide Passantino (vocals and bass), Paolo Ciotta (vocals and guitar), Francesco Negroni (guitar),

Maurizio Vallati (drums), Giovanni Lanfranchi (keyboards, violin and sampling).
