Style of Prog
The Room is a progressive rock band hailing from the Southeast of England, formed in 2010 by Martin Wilson and Steve Anderson of the progressive rock band GLD.
Wilson and Anderson finalized The Room lineup in 2011 with the addition of Andy Rowe, Steve Checkley and Andrew Rae before starting work on their debut album Open Fire.
The five band members bring together a rich musical range of influences and textures that have shaped the band’s sound: a blend of Saga, It Bites and Magnum delivered with great musicianship, catchy hooks and intriguing lyrics. Smart songs with great melodies are the essence of the bands material.
Recorded at Platform Studios in the beautiful Berkshire countryside the album features 9 tracks, seven of which are new and two tracks are remixes from the Single “A Casual Believer / A Multitude of Angels” originally release in October of 2011.
Four highly successful launch shows were played in October 2011 to coincide with the release of the promotional single “A Casual Believer / A Multitude of Angels” Audience reaction was superb and the band was thrilled with the response.
The debut album was released on Melodic Revolution Records in December 2012. Open Fire is available worldwide via Melodic Revolution Records, Disc Union, Lasers Edge, Symphonic, Garden Shed,F2 music, iTunes, CD Baby eMusic and Amazon among other fine retailers.
Following the onset of tinnitus, Drummer Andrew Rae retired from the band at the end of 2013. He was replaced by Chris York in March 2014.
