PREVIEW: ROAM @ Patterns, 25/11/2016

The Verse’s Maisie Kazen previews ROAM in the lead up to their show at Patterns on the 25th November 2016.

Pop-punk band ROAM will be back in Brighton at the end of the month and this time they have something to prove. On the back of playing shows across Australia and the USA, where they played every date of Warped Tour, they return for their first UK headline tour in over two years. Since forming in 2012, the band have released three successful EPs and a full length album on Hopeless Records. With no shortage of punchy hits to choose from, expect to hear music for fans of Blink 182, State Champs and Trash Boat. Having been in the pop-punk scene for a good few years now and working up a global fanbase, the bad are a must-see and are heading for the top of the UK scene to join the status of bands like Neck Deep. 

Despite hailing from Eastbourne just along the coast, the five-piece will not be playing a date there, making Brighton the closest to a hometown show they’re gonna get – expect stage diving and singalongs all night at the beachfront club venue. Frontman Alex Costello is notorious for his energetic stage presence and is even known to be pretty good at back flips – they are not to be missed! 

The band return to play Patterns (formally Audio) on the 25th of November with support from Toronto pop-punk band Like Pacific. Columbus and The Holiday are also supporting. With tickets priced at only £9 on the Dice app – there’s no excuse to miss out!
