The UK’s hottest rising trio the brilliant Bang Bang Romeo have announced their debut album ‘A Heartbreaker’s Guide To The Galaxy’ with celebratory Christmas shows in their hometown of Doncaster.
Melding sound from powerful soulful blues, to riffing heavy rock, to delicate vulnerable pop ballads and stomping rock and roll Bang Bang Romeo leave no territory untouched with their invasion onto the music scene.
Frontwoman Anastasia ‘Stars’ Walker commented:
“We would like to invite you to the first stop in our universe. To worlds of runaways and natural born astronauts. To favourite bad decisions under blood red skies, star crossed species and hurricanes gunning for war. The adventure begins…”

Bang Bang Romeo are the first UK signing to Eleven Seven Label Group and will be released on Allen Kovac’s Five Seven imprint.
Recorded in Birmingham, New York and Los Angeles, the band have worked with a roster of industry heavyweights on the album, including producers and co-writers Nick Furlong (Avicii, All Time Low), American Authors guitarist James Shelley and his production partner Michel Heyaca (Tinashe, Nick Jonas), New York’s Heavy (Goo Goo Dolls), and the UK’s Red Line Music team.
Meanwhile, the record has been mixed by Grammy winner Mark Needham (The Killers, The 1975), and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Arctic Monkeys, Beastie Boys, The Clash).
Artwork was designed by drummer Rich Gartland who bought the band’s concept to life with a stunning celestial scene which nods to each song on the record, comments Rich:
“Since day one we’ve drawn, designed, created all of our single artworks, and with our debut we really wanted to continue that and show our artistic desires not just in music, but in design too. Ever wondered what a song would look like if it was a place? There’s little “Easter Eggs” hidden in there, with nods to things that link to us, and things in our lives that influenced the writing of the songs.”
