As you may have seen on social media, Joshua, the much-loved son of Martin and Linda Wilson passed away on the 21st of November aged just 20. We are heartbroken.
Joshua lost his sight due to retinoblastoma (childhood eye cancer) at the age of 9. Sadly secondary cancer developed a few months ago which became too aggressive to treat. He passed away at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.
Our first single “Screaming Through the Noise” taken from our debut album Open Fire was written about Joshua, his struggle through his early years, and the impact that it had on the family.
We have decided for the first time, to release a live version of the song. The recording was made at the Salle Blackbox in Nice France in 2018. All money raised from the sale of this single will be donated to Phillis Tuckwell Hospice who looked after Joshua with so much wonderful care.
You can download the track from The Room webstore theroom.band/shop and we really don’t mind how much you pay above the £1 cover price.
With this we send our love to our band brother Martin and his family and rest in peace Josh you were loved.
Andy, Martin, Steve, Chris, Eric, and Chris
