A little background... The Room are a melodic rock band hailing from the Southeast of the UK. Formed in 2010 the band finalised their line up in 2011 before starting work on a promotional single and then their debut album. Martin Wilson and Steve Anderson from progressive rock band GLD were joined by Andy Rowe, Andrew Rae and Steve Checkley. The five band members brought together a broad range of musical influences which has helped form The Room's distinctive style. Smart songs with great melodies are the essence of the bands material with all the members involved in crafting the material. 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, confirming that their musical direction was on target. The band started writing the album over the winter, which was subsequently recorded at Platform Studios in the glorious English countryside in the spring and summer of 2012. Melodic Revolution Records signed The Room on an album deal and Open Fire was released in December 2012. To support distribution in Europe, the band signed to F2 Music and the progrock.
