Romeo Must Die To Release Debut Album Hardships In Season And Announce May Tour

On 2nd May 2011 Romeo Must Die release their blistering debut album, ‘Hardships In Season’. Eighteen months in the making, this album has been quite a journey for the band that has endured an onslaught of misfortune as vocalist Adam Frakes-Sime explains. “We began writing in 2009, and good progress was being made when Paul our guitarist was involved in a road traffic accident and was hit by a truck. He was in intensive care for some time, however considering the horrific injuries he sustained his recovery time was remarkable.”

Whilst Paul recovered, the rest of the band turned their efforts to building Grindstone Studio for producer/fellow ex-Stampin’ Ground man Scott Atkins. It was a huge project but also a great opportunity to construct the studio space in which the new record would be created. From the bricks and mortar to the timber and insulation the build took all summer to complete.

The band began tracking drums until Will their drummer rolled his car three times landing in a ditch on the M3. Will recovered within days however two weeks later vocalist Adam was in A&E for stitches to his jaw following an accident whilst recording an EPK segment.

Bassist Ben Frost recounts, “We drew from whatever problems that had affected us that month and that sense of moroseness has been injected into the songs. It’s fuelled by years of hate, bitterness and an immense underlying lust for success”.

Since their inception in 2007 Romeo Must Die have hit their post Stampin’ Ground days running, having built a solid underground following touring with the likes of Biohazard, Textures, Sylosis, Evile, as well as their own headline tours of Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, Greece, Holland, Belgium and of course the UK, their tireless work ethic paying dividends. Their 2008 EP ‘Defined By Enemies’ received top scoring reviews across the board, three months after it’s release the ‘Defined By Enemies’ music video received rotation on SCUZZ TV.

“Hardships In Season” is 49 minutes of throat stampin’, eye-gauging intensity, the likes of which will delight real fans of heavy music.
