ROLO TOMASSI will release their huge, expansive and ambitious, brand new album 'Where Myth Becomes Memory' on February 4th, 2022 through MNRK. The band returned in August with the single 'Cloaked', their first new music since 2018's hugely acclaimed 'Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It'.

ROLO TOMASSI have spent 17 years leading the pack rather than following and 'Where Myth Becomes Memory', sees them lead with more poise and determination than ever before. The new album serves as the final part in an unintended trilogy that began with 2015’s 'Grievances' and continued with 2018’s 'Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It', the most critically acclaimed album of the band’s career to date. Every ROLO TOMASSI album shows signs of growth, but 'Where Myth Becomes Memory' serves as a culmination of a period of creativity that has exalted ROLO TOMASSI to their loftiest status so far as a band, with a singular vision where the most savage, unhinged sonics can co-exist harmoniously with epic cinematic elegance and grace.

MORE ON ROLO TOMASSI:
 
Formed in 2005 this quintet’s early material blended hardcore with kitschy synths and nonsensical song structures. However, the group shaved off its more oddball qualities in favor of shoegaze and dream-pop on subsequent releases.This sound is beautifully demonstrated with Dillinger-style freak-outs that transition to lush soundscapes at a moment’s notice. Anchored by the Spence siblings’ complementary singing voices, the group perfectly blur the barrier between tranquility and destruction.
 
They have worked with US super producer Diplo and performed on Channel 4 TV live with Biffy Clyro (watch that HERE), they have played the SXSW Festival, released an album through IPECAC after catching the ear of Mike Patton and their last album is on around 7 million streams on Spotify alone.
 
This most recent album from 2018 'Time Will Die And love Will Bury It' was released to a flurry of praise an acclaim, landing it as the 2nd highest review score for the year on Metacritic (gaining a 92/100). Following previous tours and shows with the likes of Faith No More, Biffy Clyro, Dillinger Escape Plan, Architects, The Bronx and Gojira in 2019 (as main support), the band have established themselves as a live tour-de-force, now a headline prospect not only in their home territory of the UK and the EU, but also Australia, Japan, Russia and the USA. 
 
There is no band on Earth quite like ROLO TOMASSI
