The Roofwalkers will release their self-titled debut album on August 25. Haunting the streets of our nation’s capital, this sextet crafts intricate and atmospheric guitar driven pop and rock, with narcotic melodies and subtle arrangements that win you over while you’re not looking. Before changing their name from PAGODA to ROOFWALKERS, the band released both an LP (Dearly Departed) and an EP (Seven Nights), the latter of which was named as one of the Top 10 Favorite Local Albums of 2006 by the Washington Post. The new album is the first under the new moniker. Hear them here.
Hope to see you there!
