Since the release of their debut, “Ricky Spanish” last year, plucky Hull three piece, Room 22, have been turning heads and making noises in all the right places. They’re a young team that are doing more than their fare share at keeping the D.I.Y. ethos of punk alive. Originally taking their influences from the Punk Rock and grunge scene, the experience of playing live and touring has given them the exposure and confidence to widen the net and allow some bang up to the minute Alt-Rock vibes to affect their sound. The result is latest release – “T.O.S.C.” – which is having it’s premiere airing today on Backseat Mafia. I don’t know what “T.O.S.C.” stands for – yet ! But I will soon – watch this space. In the meantime, here’s the track…
 
“T.O.S.C.” will be released as a digital single this Friday via ‘Hull’s New Breed’ record label. Hull’s New Breed label was set up, and is run and managed by volunteers to find a platform new young punk and alternative bands. Here’s what head honcho Casey Stead vhas to say about their latest signing…

For a young punk-rock trio still ploughing their way through college, “T.O.S.C.” is a huge achievement for many reasons. Not least of which is the band’s uncanny ability to blend the old with the new. The band takes inspiration from some of the biggest names in punk and alternative rock (both in the UK and the USA) whilst retaining that signature sound etched straight out of Hull’s blossoming young punk scene. Both dynamic and utterly relentless, “T.O.S.C.” is a highly impressive debut from a band that promised a lot, and delivered everything, with no sign of doubt. Watch this space.”

Having already shared stages and toured as support for the likes of Wonk Unit, Vanilla pod, and current garage-punk darlings Ming City Rockers as well as old school legends 999, Room 22 will be taking the headliner all for them selves at their single launch party
