Last Chance to See... [Aug. 16th, 2012|11:28 pm]
Rome Burns - The Band
It’s with a heavy heart that we announce that next two gigs (Leeds on the 1st September 2012 and London on 22nd September 2012) will be Rome Burns’ last ones.

I think we achieved most of the goals we had when we started. We kept making music that no one else could have made (or should have made!?). We’ve headlined gigs and festivals. We’ve shared stages with icons and idols. We’ve had a lot of fun, learnt a lot, worked with some talented and amazing people and hopefully made some small but positive changes to peoples’ minds and hearts through the power of obscure lyrics and a few minor chords.

The good news is that these final two gigs will have a bit of a fun reunion feel as we’ve dragged Tori out of retirement to play bass for us. There are also some post Rome Burns project discussions going on but we are all sworn to secrecy about these.

Do not mourn, just keep the bar open for a long and glorious wake.

Details for the upcoming gigs...your last chance to catch them....

Big in Canada [Jul. 3rd, 2012|08:15 pm]
Rome Burns - The Band
Whilst wasting time wandering around the internet I discovered this site that gives a rather nice overview of current British Goth music... there's a few bands I'd probably add if it was me making this 'mix-tape' but not a bad collection.

Another test of the Rome Burns Communications (LJ, Myspace, Facebook, fliers & Website... blimey they had it simple in the old days of rock'n'roll!).

Here are some pictures from our last gig in Leeds. This was the last official gig with Nev (the taller skinnier guitarist) so these are important documents... and I'm sure these can be used for blackmail purposes at some later date!

As you probably noticed, this LJ is no longer updated.
We moved the website to new hosting ages ago and never got around to synchronising it all with this news feed and so on.

All our updates are now put into:
Myspace
Facebook
or the official website

Thanks, and see you all soon...

Album update... [Jul. 26th, 2007|08:53 am]
Rome Burns - The Band
Work on the new album, "The Static Murmur", continues at a frantic pace. This weekend sees the final recording session, where the last few vocal tracks will be laid down.

Mixing and mastering will follow soon after, but even at this early stage the songs are sounding fantastic!

Strawberry fair, the aftermath... [Jun. 13th, 2007|08:43 am]
Rome Burns - The Band
We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who braved the scorching sunshine and came along to see us at Strawberry Fair.
Despite melting in the direct sunlight, we really enjoyed it and look forward to playing more outdoor festivals!

If you missed us, there's a few piccies and videos of us up on the net already:
