Forming in late 2005, ROMANCE struck a nerve with music fans. KEXP, one of the nations best independent radio stations, quickly jumped on the bands debut EP, WHEN THINGS ARE BETTER, putting it in regular rotation. Led by their hit single "Paris Is Burning" this was soon followed by many independent radio stations. Readers of THE STRANGER, Seattle's premier music and arts weekly, voted ROMANCE one of the top four up and coming bands in the city.
Recently Romance had a line up change with the addition of new drummer Joshua Fant (ex-Post Stardom Depression). They released their debut full length album "The Divide" in the fall of 2008 and it quickly climbed to number one on the North West music charts on KEXP.. It is now in rotation on many indie radio stations and the single "Face On The Sun" was also chosen as the song of the day on KEXP.
