The Cloud Room, Up in Smoke

The Cloud Room - Hey Now NowMy morning routine consists of taking the bus or walking to work, listening to another one of those bands that John‘s got me hooked on. For the longest while, it was definitely these guys, The Cloud Room.

We’ve got permission to play them on the podcast (so of course, we have [RadioZoom]) and I’ve mentioned them a couple times in various posts. They were all set to release their sophomore album in the near future until an unfortunate event this month:

Last night frontman J came home to his Williamsburg apartment, only to find that his belongings had been destroyed by a fire.

The band was working on their new tunes in J’s apartment, so all of their gear was destroyed, along with the Mac computer that contained the recordings. Amps, guitars, new tracks, plus all of J’s personal items and clothes went up in smoke. Oh yeah, and yesterday just happened to be his birthday. [TheTripwire]

The band was touring this year with Muse, across North America this summer and we were just waiting for them to add a Vancouver date. Due to this major setback we can’t expect to hear anything new for a while, and that’s really a shame.

Given that this was a text-only interview, this is the best format with which to post the conversation. […]
