„The Roop“ record contains 10 songs including already known compositions „In My Arms“, „Be Mine“ and „Not Too Late“. The album which too more than 3 years to produce was recorded in the Vilnius’ recording studio „Black Box Recordings“. The final audio mastering was done in Australia by one the field‘s professionals Leon Zervos, thanks to whom albums from bands like „INXS“, „Aerosmith“, „Maroon 5” and „Muse” saw the light of day.

„This album is a piece into which we put all of our thoughts and ideas. Countless nights were spent for the sake of it and innumerable amount of coffee has been drunk. This is our musical dream that came true. We really hope that people who love music will enjoy our dream“, – said “The Roop” lead vocalist Vaidotas Valiukevičius.

According to band members, last few years were not only tense, but also very busy in regards to creativity and discovery.

„This was the time when we got to know each other and learned more that we had Learned previously in our lives. All these years were put into ten songs which we wanted to sound perfect“, – claimed „The Roop“.

The most active period for the band was last year throughout which the four guys from Vilnius not only finished the album, but also released 4 singles and made video for two of them. Video for „Not Too Late“ allows the band to proudly be the first in the world to integrate two difficult technologies: 360 view with animated characters.

„The Roop“ have already planned album release gigs in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Germany and the UK.
