‘The world within our bedrooms’ was originally set to arrive this coming Friday, 25th June.
Drug Store Romeos have been forced to delay the release of their debut album for two weeks due to vinyl issues.
The world within our bedrooms was due to land tomorrow, but the project will now be coming on 9th July after an update from their label.
“Hi everyone,” the band wrote on Instagram. “I don’t really know how to tell you this and the only appropriate photo I could think to share along with it is a photo of a grumpy Sarah back in fleet as we wait for a delayed train. We’ve got some frustrating news to share about ‘The world within our bedrooms’ release date, a vehicle of quite a different locomotion. The album will now be coming out on the 9th July. We’re really sorry for the wait but can’t wait for you to hear it and hope that waiting two more weeks will be worth it! As we know that you’ve been waiting patiently for it we have a few special things we can share with you in the meantime coming very soon.”
They go on to add a note from their label, Fiction Records, which reads: “After exploring all possible options and doing our most to get this album out on time, we are sorry to let fans know that the album will now be moving back two week. This push back is due to production issues with the vinyl records. Vinyl is in higher demand than ever and with recent shortages in raw material and limited pressing capacity the soonest we can get these to fans is the 9th July.”
Drug Store Romeos share a similar sound to label-mates Tame Impala and The Naked and Famous.
The British bandmates, Charlie, Jonny, and Sarah formed their group in college when Sarah applied to be a bassist for the band, however, her ethereal voice led her to become the main vocalist for the trio.
According to their Instagram, the band have been working on this album for the last 4-5 years, but the bulk of the project was created last year during the pandemic. Previous singles ‘What’s On Your Mind’, ‘Electric Silence’ and ‘Cycle Of Life’ are set to feature.
The world within our bedrooms features 15 tracks and is explained as, “a journey of emotions and colour schemes. A lot of bands have a consistent emotion across their whole album, but we wanted to reflect the ever changing nature of someone’s mental state over a period of time. We always wanted to create our own world, and as a three we have this force field around us.”
