August 21st, 2017 – Singapore – ROAM has officially announced they are releasing their second album titled ‘Great Heights & Nosedive’ on October 13th, 2017 via Hopeless Records. The first single from the album, “Playing Fiction”, premiered in the UK on BBC’s Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter and can now be streamed on Spotify and Apple Music. The music video can be seen on YouTube here: smarturl.it/PlayingFictionVideo.  The album is now available for pre-order through the band’s site, or on iTunes with an instant grat download of “Playing Fiction” here.

The first single from the record is the hook-heavy, soon-to-be-singalong-favorite “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 realization 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 centers around myself and Costello walking through a town with strange scenes appearing as the day progresses. It all builds towards our realization 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…”

ROAM’s journey since their first album’s release has seen them play shows as far flung as Japan (with The Wonder Years and With Confidence) and the USA (with As It Is this summer and as a part of Vans Warped Tour last summer). They’ve supported the likes of State Champs, Against The Current, Sum 41 and Simple Plan in the UK and Europe and have played storming sets at festivals such as Reading & Leeds, 2000trees and Slam Dunk.
