Rip Room Release “Monsters” EP, Video for Theoretical

Rip Room is excited to announce that our EP “Monsters” is finally available on cassette. This is the last of the songs we recorded with our dear (and tall) friend Joe Barker, late last year at Louder Studios with the wonderful Tim Green. (Sarah and I did some additional mixing with Tim on a incredibly hot day in Grass Valley this summer.) This year we learned the songs with our new drummer and dear friend, Gracie Malley, and have been playing the hell out of them (and a gang of new songs) ever since.

We also made a video for a song called “Theoretical“, that happens to be on “Monsters“. There are spaceship animations and minor strobe effects so be warned.
