Early 2014 has seen BANG BANG ROMEO working with internationally acclaimed producer Chris Kimsey (Rolling Stones, INXS) to produce their latest E.P. We Were Born, available digitally through iTunes and all major stores from 4/28/14. Described as “sublime, like a Tarantino soundtrack”, the E.P has already made an impact on BBC Introducing Radio. The Band have been selected as BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens ‘Pick Of The Week’ and were played on his show on BBC Radio 1 on 27/3/14. Labelled as “The best in new music” and “one of the most exciting new bands in the country.” BANG BANG ROMEO were also featured on Huw Stephens podcast ‘19th March SXSW Special’ available here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/huwintro Alongside airplay of “Cemetery (an ode to the IRS)” on BBC Radio 6 Tom Robinson and his BBC Introducing mixtape, and further support with a dozen airing’s on BBC Radio Sheffield Introducing Christian Carlisle show has led to further plays on BBC Shropshire, BBC Northampton and BBC Cumbria. BANG BANG ROMEO won a JD Roots competition late 2013 which earned them the privilige of recording with producer Tony Platt (AC/DC, Bob Marley) in Parr Street Studio’s Liverpool, to record a single. Recent live online session feature by Exposed Magazine showcasing BANG BANG ROMEO’s enigmatic live performance, as well as support slots with ‘Dexters’ and ‘Night Engine’ plus shows with This Feeling and Tramlines Festival, have contributed to the bands ever growing reputation as a powerful live force. Live dates early in 2014 including The Leadmill Sheffield, The Lexington London, Academy 2 Sheffield, The Social Doncaster, Deaf Institute Manchester, Tramlines 2014, dates with THIS FEELING in Aptril & May and a high profile support slot TBC via J.D Roots make it an exciting time for the band. A pre-match gig at The City Square outside The Etihad Stadium on May 7th has also just been confirmed, the band will play before the game between Manchester City v Aston Villa. Drawing on a wide range influences from the likes of Jefferson Airplane and The Mamas and Papas to The Doors and Fleetwood Mac gives BANG BANG ROMEO a unique melodic 60’s vibe with all the mood of a film score coupled with a gritty and malevolent Rock sound.
