The New Room: Blog


Some of our favorite artists have chosen to release their solo work on the fiercely independent HEYDAY RECORDS (est. 1988), so we are very excited to be featured on the latest HEYDAY compilation alongside David J (Bauhaus/Love and Rockets), Mark Burgess (The Chameleons), and Marty Willson-Piper (The Church). To celebrate we’ll be playing a show with the one-and-only DAVID J on March 6th at PART TIME PUNKS at The Echo. FREE compilations will be handed out to all who attend, while they last. Only 50 of these are available!!!

Interview Posted

On June 15 The New Room returned as featured guests on "...IS GOOD" w/ Jon Hershfield. To hear the interview, which includes live acoustic versions of songs from our recent release, go to:

The Presents Report: Silver Factory Studios


Posted By Jon Hershfield (Excerpt)

"Around 12:30 we finally gave the green light to The New Room to hit the stage. This was my first time seeing them rock out on a stage fully plugged in (having seen them play fantastic stripped down versions of their music live on "…IS GOOD" twice). Lead singer Anthony strides about the stage with a confidence that can only be backed up by his signature new wave vocal style. One audience member even commented to me that the band was so enjoyable, she felt she could have been at a Depeche Mode concert. Mig's wizadry on the electric guitar allows The New Room to remain genre defiant."
