"New sound, new era, new genre - Grunge 2.0" - The description of The Baboon Room given by producer Dean Glover. The newest band on the block, breaking their way into the industry. With high gain guitar music and catchy melody lines The Baboon Room are definitely a band to keep your eyes and ears on!
The band, Made up of members Trent Delves, Simon Stirzaker, Sam Metcalfe and Max Morris started out as a project on the backburner in the mind of Trent who was between bands. After moving to Manchester and needing a new band Trent took the decision to get Simon and Max on board who he knew from school and college, after a couple of changes the band settled on the choice of Sam for the position of Bassist.
Any fans of Dinosaur Jr, Weezer, Foo Fighters, Don Broco and Highly Suspect will love what The Baboon Room has to offer and that's a promise! The band also all have their own individual influences such as Trent who takes influence from authors and film directors as well as musical influences. Simon who made a lot of new sounds which lead us to our new genre Grunge 2.0 with influences from 70's and 80's rock as well as modern blues players. Max has heavy influences from the Funk and R&B genres adding to the sound more and we can always rely on Sam for our heavier music with influences from the likes of Slipknot, Dream Theatre as well as lighter bands like King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard.
The release of the latest single "Different Person" on March 6th 2020 marked the start of a new era at the turn of the decade for The Baboon Room. This is the first time that their new sound has been heard in recorded form as before this the band were an indie outfit as can be seen with songs such as Never and Britannia. The song was described by radio show host Olivia Browse as "a song i could imagine myself bopping my head to and mouthing the words while walking down the street looking like an idiot." This is one of many glowing reviews for the upcoming band. May the future be bright and may The Baboon Room be proof that Rock and Roll is still very much alive!
