Released: 22 April 2011
Sound of Rum’s debut album ‘Balance’ will undoubtedly carve a place in the hearts and minds of any and all who are fortunate enough to experience it.
‘Balance’ is out now on a beautifully packaged CD (complete with all the lyrics on a large fold-out poster) and on download.
A few words from the band…
“We’re deeply excited about the release of this record, we’ve poured our hearts and souls into it and would really appreciate your support – please buy it if you can afford to.
We’ve been playing all over the UK this month and it all culminates with a week cruising up the Thames as part of the River Rat Pack tour before coming back to London for our album launch on June 2nd at the CAMP basement.
We have been gigging ourselves into varying states of injury and illness for years, but never like this. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately depending on how you look at it, we cant afford billboards with our name in neon advertising our appearences, but what we can do is let the people who have seen us before and been into it know that we’re coming to them, or near to them, or to a town where their mate lives and we’d love to see you all there.”

A few words from their peers…
“It astounds me. Her writing is epic, her delivery piercing, and with the addition of her band Sound of Rum her potential is realized. Inspirational.”
“Her works are truly of upliftment and betterment.”
“I don’t see the point in anyone else making live loops when Archie Marsh exists.”
And a few more heart-felt words from us…
Sound of Rum are your new favourite band – astounding live, poetic and powerful on record. The kind of band you fall head-over-heels in love with. But better, because they’ll love you right back. Please go to the gigs and buy the record, they deserve and demand to be heard, and cherished.
