The Room

British crossover progressive rock band The Room release a single in aid of the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) on March 4th 2013.

The track, Screaming Through The Noise is taken from the band’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Open Fire’, released late last year.
Vocalist Martin Wilson said “The song is about the intense emotional impact that my son’s battle with retinal cancer had on our family.

With the release of the single, we want to help CHECT increase awareness of this dreadful disease and of course raise money to help fund research and support other families living with retinoblastoma.”
The single will be launched at a one-off show in aid of the trust at the Jagz Club, Ascot, in Berkshire at 8pm on Sunday 3rd March. The show will be the band’s first live performance since the release of Open Fire. “This is a really exciting time for us, and we can’t wait to get out and play live”, explained Wilson. “The show will be free to get in on the night but of course we will be looking for donations from as many people as possible.”
Joy Felgate, chief executive of CHECT said: “We are thrilled that The Room will be supporting us through this single release and launch show. The money raised will help us make a difference by backing our vital campaigns to make sure all parents and health professionals know the signs and symptoms of retinoblastoma.”
Details of how to buy the single via digital download will be announced soon with all proceeds going to CHECT.
The band will be announcing more UK dates in the very near future.
Retinoblastoma (Rb) is a rare form of cancer which affects the retina of children, predominantly under the age of five years and it represents 3% of childhood
cancers in the UK. Children affected by the disease can suffer from loss of vision, removal of their affected eye(s) and, in some cases, total blindness.

Covered Call

Covered Call: An expression used in financial circles depicting a picture of Wall Street, big cities, and the frenzy of the stock market. Covered Call the band, however, was born in a small carpentry shed in the dark, deep forests of Sweden. The contrast couldn´t be greater between the band and their name.

Covered Call was formed by drummer Ronny Svanströmer and guitarist Joel Carlsson. Subsequently, second guitarist Morgan Rosenquist joined the band and the material rapidly started taking shape.

The band immediately landed a deal and released their debut album “Money Never Sleeps” internationally in 2009. During the recording sessions for the band’s second album bassist Andy Loos (ex Glory, Lion´s Share) was recruited as a full member in the lineup.

Andy had previously been working with Göran Edman (ex John Norum Band, Yngwie Malmsteen), who was soon after recruited to complete this stellar lineup.

The new album, entitled IMPACT, was recorded by Covered Call along with Studio Fredman (Arch Enemy, Hammerfall, Dimmu Borgir, In Flames) and was mixed by Lars Chriss of Lion´s Share (who also performed a guest solo on the track “Hold On”) at LS Studio.

The band has left their suits behind and is ready to deliver unforgettable rock music in the true AOR spirit!

This new musical constellation together with vocalist Göran Edman now sound stronger than ever and with fantastic new material Covered Call will prove, once again, that their brand of hook-layered rock is a force to be reckoned with.

Track list: 1. Lorraine, 2. When the lights are out, 3. Think about all times, 4 Look into your mind, 5. Hold on, 6. Make a wish, 7. Nothing lasts forever, 8. Wake up, 9. When I´m gone, 10. Live it up, 11. Last goodbye

Line-Up: Göran Edman – Lead vocals, Joel Carlsson – Guitars, Morgan Rosenquist – Guitar, Andy Loos  – Bass, Ronny Svanströmer  – Drums
