Interview with Red Room Therapy

How did the band get together?

We got together by bonding over the frustration of conventional and mundane life. And whisky.

LOL 🙂
Where did the band name Red Room Therapy come from?

We named the band after a trip to Switzerland went horribly wrong when a man was kind enough to let us play his mountain horn but we dropped it and it fell to the bottom of the mountain. The national colour of Switzerland is red.

Oops! Makes a good story for the band name though 😉
You released an EP in 2012, followed by a single in 2013. All great songs. Can you tell us a bit about your writing process and inspiration?

Thank you. To be honest, we’re a bit of a ‘jam band’. We’ll jam some ideas, string them together into a structure, let Osh belt some vocals and away we go! The lyrics are more thought out.

Who were your favourite bands/musicians when you were growing up, and were there any musicians in particular that influenced your decision to become a musician?

There are sooo many artists that have contributed to our existence as musicians. Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Guns N’ Roses are some of the core elements, but if you delve deeper into our influences you’ll find all sorts of bizarre sounds going on!

You’ve been touring quite a lot recently. What have been some of your favourite live shows so far?

We played Sound City festival in Liverpool not so long ago, which was one of the best weekends of our lives. We’ve just come back from the Isle of Man where we played to one of the biggest crowds yet. That was an amazing experience.

You’re playing Fight Back Festival in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and Cancer Research UK in July. Tell us a bit more about that festival and how you became involved in it.

We’re very passionate supporters of cancer charities, especially as our own lives have been heavily affected by the disease. The lady behind this project, Claire Marie Price, has earned a lot of love and support from the numerous projects she’s put in place to raise money for the charities, so when we were asked to play Fight Back Festival it didn’t take much to convince us to get behind it. Our friends Fireroad and The Undivided are gonna be there too so it’s gonna be one hell of a festival.

I read on your bio that you are planning to release a debut album later this year. How is that coming along? What can fans expect from the album?

It’s going great. To be honest we’ve been so busy touring lately that we haven’t had a chance to finish it! We’ll be going back into the studio soon to make the final touches and get it ready for release. We can’t wait for people to hear it because it blows our previous work out of the water!

If you could tour with any other band who would you choose, and why?

PEARL JAM! Anyone who knows Pearl Jam knows why.

I love Pearl Jam 🙂
What was the last album you bought, and would you recommend it?

We can’t remember the last album we bought, but we can remember the first. Hybrid Theory by Linkin Park, and we would recommend it a million times. We just saw them perform the entire album from start to finish at Download festival. It was absolutely incredible.

Their new album is brilliant too! 🙂
Any other news for your fans?

We love every single one of you.

Ahhh… thanks 🙂 Good luck with the touring and new album, guys. I can’t wait to hear the new music!

Band Bio:

Red Room Therapy were formed in 2010 in a sleepy little village called Penderyn, deep in the Welsh countryside. Renowned for their captivating live performance, unique sound and honest songwriting, the band have spent the last three years relentlessly gigging throughout the U.K. The band recorded their début EP at Sonic One Studios in Llanelli, West Wales, which was then mastered at the famous Abbey Road Studios. With songs inspired by the realities of life, the band hope that their music can reach out to people from all backgrounds. They hope to follow the tradition of successful Welsh bands by touring and sharing their music all around the world.
