On several occasions CAESARS ROME were main support for their friends Funeral For A Friend and also supported bands such as InMe, Innerpartysystem and Twin Atlantic and playing a collection of shows with Welsh friends in Attack! Attack! & Tiger Please. Their debut-album The Company We Keep was recorded with Romesh Dodangoda (Manic Street Preachers, Kids In Glass Houses, Funeral For A Friend, The Blackout) in Long Wave Studios in Cardiff. “Romesh had worked with us before we started writing for an album. He believed in the songs and really brought them to life pre and post the recordings”, explains singer and guitarist Jonathan Hopkins. Lyrically the album's title stems entirely from one central theme: “The songs and lyrics themselves tell a story from start to finish of our evolution as friends, how moods and situations can change us and how we continue to develop the strong relationships with people that surround our lives - friends, family, lovers etc.” They didn't write an album on how the songs "should" sound, but grasped a mood and moulded the music around its lyrics. “The Company We Keep” itself will show you aurally that it's a time line of events which lead on to shape the album as a whole." Caesars Rome have released their latest single Traitors from their soon to be named next release!
