Whoever has attended one of ROME’s 2022/23 shows on their European tour will remember this new banger ‘Yellow and Blue’ as one of the breathtaking encores Jerome Reuter would deliver towards the end of the set. As it was about time to let people hear the studio version of this anthem in all its glory, ‘Yellow and Blue’ is now released as a strictly limited edition 7” vinyl single, a teaser to the upcoming full-length album ‘Gates of Europe’. The B-Side features the song in its live version, recorded at their legendary appearance in war-time Kyiv in February 2023.

ROME has never been overtly political, but since Russia has dragged Europe into a war, Jerome Reuter, ROME’s mastermind who founded the project in Luxembourg back in 2005, has taken sides and visited Ukraine several times since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, given performances and delivered humanitarian aid. Yellow and Blue was written on the road in Ukraine on such a trip.

The slogan “courage has two colours” being used as part of an early war-time campaign by Ukraine’s armed forces, Reuter expanded the sentiment:

We don’t run on dollars
The green won’t do
For strength has two colours
Yellow and blue

ROME has a long-standing history with its Ukrainian fanbase. The band have been visiting Ukraine regularly since 2015, shortly after hostilities began in the country’s east. As it happened, ROME was touring Ukraine as well, a mere few days before the invasion in February 2022, performing in Kyiv and Odesa. After charity concerts inside and outside of Ukraine in 2022, Reuter brought the whole band back as promised to perform two now already legendary shows in February to commemorate the anniversary of the invasion with shows in Lviv and Kyiv. The B-Side was recorded at the sold-out show in Kyiv and demonstrates ROME’s passionate fervour to not be intimidated by anyone or anything and to forge its own path...
