According to their Facebook page, old school punk rockers Upside Down Room are still around and recording new music. No other details, but we keep you updated. For those that don’t remember, Upside Down Room was signed to Tooth & Nail records for a pair of releases in 90s and also have several indie releases outside of that. Their latest EPs have been released through Pop.Vox.Music.
The new ep by Upside Down Room, Let’s Go For A Ride, is available now at pop.vox.music. It features six new punk rock songs for your listening pleasure (two songs are new recordings of hard-to-find songs). “This is their first full release in 12 years, and their first new recorded material in 10 years. The songs were mastered by Jason Martin (Starflyer 59) and the artwork is by Rachel Anderson (The Devious Means).”
Pop.Vox.Music announced today that punk rockers Upside Down Room are back. Well, they actually never went anywhere, but they now have new music. Out now is a re-issue of the band’s out-of-print ep TV Baby with two bonus tracks and redesigned “classic” artwork. Also announced is a new 6 song ep to be released next month. No more details on the new songs other than they were mastered by Jason Martin of Starflyer 59. Should be another classic.
