Check out The Burning Of Rome: Arty, eccentric, challenging, madly energetic and much more…
After San Diego music creator Adam Traub, was diagnosed with a rare muscular disorder in both legs, he was thrown into a world of medical chaos, 7 surgeries and 6 titanium bolts later, Traub was faced with a long grueling recovery.
During that time he would play an old upright piano and would hobble over to figure out Beatles songs. Beatles eventually turned to Chopin. Chopin eventually turned into Thelonious Monk. And Thelonious eventually turned into The Burning of Rome.
Adam Traub says: “As a songwriter music is a therapeutic way for me to cope with the world around me. Ever since I was a child I felt like an alien visiting Earth and had (and still have) difficulty understanding what makes people normal.
I opted to rebel against the norm through music; it was the only thing that made sense to me.
“The ultimate goal of The Burning of Rome” is to reach as many people as possible with our sound and offer musical asylum to those needing it. Bands used to carry the banner for their followers in a way that seems fleeting.
There aren’t any Joe Strummers of this generation acting as a voice for those that can’t be heard. I want The Burning of Rome to carry a banner for its followers and give them refuge from monotony.
I want to rally the masses and call out the corrupt. I want a revolution to spark from this band!”
The album ‘With Us’, out now in the U.S. on Surfdog Records, will be released in the UK early in 2013.
