Pop punk rockers ROAM have announced a European tour to support the release of their sophomore record “Great Heights & Noisedives” which will be out via Hopeless Records on 13th October. You can listen to the first single “Playing Fiction” below. Tickets go on-sale Friday at 10am (GMT).
The record is the follow up to 2016’s debut ‘Backbone’ and was produced by Kyle Black (State Champs, New Found Glory, Comeback Kid) in Los Angeles, California.
The first single from the record is the hook-heavy, soon-to-be-singalong-
favourite ‘Playing Fiction’ which has been revealed alongside a video that marries modern day life with some classic fairy tales. Alex Adam (Guitar / Vocals) explains the thinking behind the track: “Playing Fiction is really a song about pretending, and the realisation that things aren’t always how they seem. Maybe you’re pretending you’re ok, saying nothing’s wrong when it actually is, or, as is the case in Playing Fiction, you’re pretending a relationship hasn’t run its course when it has. The video for the song centres around myself and Costello walking through a town with strange scenes appearing as the day progresses. It all builds towards our realisation that we’re stuck in a fairytale daydream, and we end up being a part of the fantastical world. It was a lot of fun to shoot with all our friends and some cheeky special extras in various costumes. We’ll let you guess as to their identities”.
