ROAM Announce Debut Album, Stream New Single

Over the weekend, United Kingdom-based band ROAM unveiled the music video for their brand new track, “Deadweight.” In addition to the new music which features Set Your Goal’s Matt Wilson, the band also confirmed some important information about their debut record. Their debut record will be titled Backbone and is set to be released on Jan. 22 through Hopeless Records.

“We always felt like an album had to really make a statement or it wasn’t worth doing. Production, sound, songwriting – everything needs to make a significant step up or it’s just another release, nothing special,” frontman Alex Adam explained to Kerrang! during a recent interview.

“There are a few songs on the album that we wouldn’t have been confident enough to write or put out as our younger selves. It took a lot of time for us to make that transition and I think Backbone is a word that signifies that. Doing something and being confident about it, despite any risk involved. It’s a lyric in one of the songs on the album and I think it resonates with what we felt we needed during the writing period.”

Check out the music which features the band go all army as they search for that person who left a negative comment on their music video.

Pre-orders for Backbone are currently available on iTunes. For those who pre-order the album, they will receive an instant download of “Deadweight.”
