ROMERO line-up changes

For stoner rock heathens, ROMERO, times, they are a-changin'.  The band has just announced the recent departure of bass player, Steve Stanczyk.  While the split was sudden, it was completely amicable and Jeffrey & Ben wish their comrade all the best.  

Assuming bass duties for ROMERO is long time friend of the band, Patrick Hotlen.  Jeffrey & Patrick have a long history and were previously even in a band together, albeit playing completely different instruments!  Patrick most recently played drums in Rust Belt Sermon and may be most known for his time behind the kit with emo hardcore pioneers None Left Standing.

If having to replace a key member of a band wasn't enough, ROMERO decided to take things one step further by adding another to their ranks.  Tim Consequence!  Tim played on "Take The Potion" (LP/CD) and will continue playing organ with the band, as well as some 2nd guitar & percussion.  Tim is a multi-instrumentalist who lends his talents to many projects as well as running his own studio.

Live performances with the new line-up are in the works & ROMERO is currently writing & recording demos for a new release in 2014.  They are also busy finishing a video for the song "Compliments & Cocktails".
