Fans of rock and “Psycho,” makes sure to check out the newest music video from rock band, The Burning of Rome. The Burning of Rome’s creepy “Psycho”-inspired music video for “Norman Bates” premiered on Bloody-disgusting.com yesterday and the clip is now available to view on Youtube.
If you like what you hear, you can download the band’s new LP here. Hereis the link to stream/download The Burning of Rome’s new LP, With Us…
The album includes 3 Butthole Surfers remixes by Paul Leary (Sublime, U2, Meat Puppets, Pepper, Butthole Surfers). The band recently won “Best Alternative” act at the San Diego Music Awards. The record was recorded at East/West studios in the same room that the Beach Boys recorded Pet Sounds. With influences ranging from Mike Patton (Mr. Bungle), Danny Elfman (Oingo Boingo), Pink Floyd, and Phil Spector, the San Diego based ensemble defies all genres.
Here are a few of their upcoming shows:
Oct 12-Elements Venue-Bakersfield, CA
Oct 15-SLO Brewing Company-San Luis Obispo, CA
Oct 19-Trunk Space-Phoenix, AZ
Oct 20-Viper Room-Los Angeles, CA

Praise for The Burning of Rome:
“A post-apocalyptic mash-up of meticulous orchestration, electronic manipulation and eccentric experimentation” – 944 Magazine
“Gypsy punk rife with keys and rasping vocals” – Paste Magazine
“If you like your music to grin at you with a wide-eyed look of barely contained insanity, then The Burning Of Rome was custom-built for you” – KPBS
Blending gypsy punk, dance, and rock into mind-bending stew, San Diego based ensemble The Burning of Rome will release their debut LP With Us on September 18 via Surfdog Records (Brian Setzer, Glen Campbell, Dave Stewart.) The LP was recorded in LA at EastWest studios and was produced by lead singer Adam Traub and Tom Biller, mixed by Dave Darling (Tom Waits, Jack Johnson, Brian Setzer) with additional remixes by Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers, Sublime, U2, Meat Puppets, Pepper).
After several rotating members, The Burning of Rome has settled in its current and longest-running inception of the band: Traub (keyboards/lead vocals), Joe Aguilar (guitar / vocals), Aimee Jacobs (glockenspiel / synthesizer / vocals), and Lee Williams (drums / percussion). Together they’ve unleashed Traub’s creation upon the world. Each song, though disguised alarmingly well by infectious hooks and provocative allusions to historical references, elicits intensely moving accounts of Traub’s interpretation of the human experience.
THE BURNING OF ROME is:
Adam Traub: Vocals, Keyboards
Joe Aguilar: Guitar, Vocals
Aimee Jacobs: Keyboards, Vocals
Lee Williams: Drums
