About



To truly understand the quiet phenomenon that are Romans, one listen to their music will explain everything. Romans dip their toes into several of rock n' roll's most pristine ponds, is a refreshing departure from today's plastic wrapped, industry made, music money makers. Helmed by Jeremy Fury and supported by Craig Bonich, Romans strives for timeless, not temporary, firmly steeping themselves in the classic composure of music's most prolific songwriters.

"I remember Craig and I finished off a couple bottles of wine and were doing a taped interview for a popular online music site," he remembers. "I thought, 'Man we should start a band together someday,' A few years later, here we are. I envisioned this project to encompass the best parts of rock n' roll nostalgia incorporating everything from 50's doo wop, 60's brit rock, and 70's glam."

Romans are like tasting the rainbow of classic rock with a modern twist. Infused with the unique rawness of a Stones-esque boogie in "All The Glitters Gone" to the delicate lacing of Roy Orbison nostalgia in "Somedays" there's no denying the catalog of songs has swagger as demonstrated in the nod to T-Rex in "Us Being Young" and "Our Love" acknowledging the Ziggy Stardust era Bowie. With tracks produced by L.A. based noise-smith Manny Nieto (The Breeders, Rumspringa, Health), Rick Parker (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Von Bondies, Good Old War), and Tony Visconti protege Mario McNulty (Bowie, Lou Reed), Romans have a great deal to be excited about. Over the past few months the band have shared the stage with The Detroit Cobras, Wayne Kramer of The MC5, David Johansen of the NY Dolls, Electric Six, D Generation, and Foxy Shazam. Most recently, the band's single "Let's Get It On" was placed in the latest Royal Caribbean TV commercial in the U.K. and Ireland.

So, is rock n' roll dead? Definitely not. And Romans are on a mission to make sure that doesn't change. No matter how music trends ebb and flow, the one time tested certainty is people will always want songs to connect with and Romans deliver by doing it their way and having more fun than anyone else.
