June 7th sees the release of much anticipated debut album “Good to Be Alive” by Dublin based Rock band STILLROOM. The album was recorded at Ashtown Studios under the watchful eye of Dermot Lambert, produced, engineered and mixed by Tommy O’ Sullivan and mastered by Aidan Foley [worked with U2, The Foo Fighters and Van Morrison]. The album features 11 captivating tracks, all written and co-produced by STILLROOM. The hard working band have also enlisted filmmaker Anthony White to create a promo trailer for the album and filming for the first video to accompany the single ‘Rock n Roll o.f.o.’ has recently been completed. STILLROOM premiered this single on Radio Nova to glowing reviews; “These guys are going places. STILLROOM are the real deal, take it from me!”– Pat Courtenay, Radio Nova.
In the summer of 2006, five friends boarded a flight to LA with a 3 track demo and a dream…. The result was gigs in The Roxy, The Whiskey-a-Go-Go and The Cat Club on the Sunset Strip, but more importantly this trip reaffirmed the bands passion, conviction and commitment to their chosen road.
Since then, STILLROOM have toured tirelessly around Ireland and Europe and have taken part in various festivals. Some of their many achievements include having one of their songs featured in a movie and beating off tough competition for selection in a Microsoft ad campaign.
STILLROOM released an EP which Hot Press described as “Rory Gallagher meets Bon Jovi meets Judas Priest” and last year released the double A-side single and videos for Christopher Cloud/Better Days, to great acclaim while heading over to London and Germany to continue gigging. They are certainly no novices to the Music Industry and look set to make a serious impact with this latest release. “Dublin rockers STILLROOM are finally releasing their debut album and it’s a face melter. It is good to be alive and rock is clearly alive and well in Dublin” – Krank.ie.
To support the album STILLROOM have announced a tour which kicks off in Dublin’s Sin é on June 7 and takes in such festivals such as the Court House Festival in Leixlip and the coveted You Bloom Festival.
STILLROOM will be preforming live in HMV/Xtra-Vision – Saturday June 7th @ 2pm HMV – Belgard Road, Tallaght (Album will be on Sale)
“A great album that would compliment any collection and can stand shoulder to shoulder with anything I have on my shelves! As a good friend once told me, you too should heed this..Get it on!” – PlanetMosh
