In light of a recent email...
Dear The Cloud Room,
Where'd you guys go?
...we are playing our first headlining NYC show in a year and 26 days!!!! Blame the absence on Australia, Muse, The National, fire, time, Poland & chicken pox (poor Dave). Oh, and we’ve also been recording our next EP (Please Don’t Almost Kill Me) & LP. So come check out the new songs next week, our new horn section (the 100% Natural Good-Time Family Band Horn Ensemble), bathe in the free booze, and support a great cause. All $$$ goes to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
& stay for the afterparty...

Things are heating up for The Cloud Room
* Pepsi, that brown drink, is helping spread the gospel of "Hey Now Now" to a worldwide audience (minus North America, sorry--y'all should get into futbol) with a little help from Ronaldinho...the Arcade Fire of FIFA.
* The band continues to record the new material on our own, as we are back to our old, unsigned selves. An EP "Please don't almost kill me" is being readied for a spring self-release.
* Our music is also featured prominently in the upcoming feature film that just premiered at Sundance, "Delirious", starring Steve Buscemi !!! Michael Pitt !! and Elvis Costello !!!!
