THE BURNING OF ROME, DEBUT ALBUM “WITH US” SEPT. 18
The pleasingly strange debut “With Us” is set for release September 18th on Surfdog Records. Recorded in LA at EastWest studios, produced by Adam Traub and Grammy Award winning producer Tom Biller, mixed by Dave Darling (Tom Waits, Jack Johnson, Brian Setzer) with additional remixes by Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers, Sublime, U2, Meat Puppets, Pepper). The band ended up in the same room that ‘Pet Sounds” was tracked in 40 years prior. There was an intense energy throughout the recording process. Periodically, Flea, who was recording with Red Hot Chili Peppers in the other half of the studio, or Anthony Kiedis would check in for small talk. Even a nod from Rick Rubin by the coffee machine was a major inspiration. Challenged by the surrounding greatness “With Us” evolved.
The Burning of Rome follows no suit or trend. They attempt to do the opposite, challenging conventionalism. Prepare for something manic and theatrical when you see them live.
They have been lucky enough to open for acts they admire such as The Black Keys, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Devo, MGMT, Skrillex, Suicidal Tendencies and Jimmy Eat World.
Says Songwriter/Creator Adam Traub, “The ultimate goal of The Burning of Rome” is to reach as many people as possible with our sound and offer musical asylum to those needing it. Bands used to carry the banner for their followers in a way that seems fleeting. There aren’t any Joe Strummers of this generation acting as a voice for those that can’t be heard. I want The Burning of Rome to carry a banner for its followers and give them refuge from monotony. I want to rally the masses and call out the corrupt. I want a revolution to spark from this band!”
