Algae Bloom share cover of Jeromes Dream’s ‘Just Down the Hall from Room 526’

By Aaron Lohan

We at Punktastic are exclusively sharing Algae Bloom’s rendition of ‘Just Down the Hall from Room 526’.

This cover from the Norwich duo is featured on a massive upcoming charity compilation featuring various artists paying tribute to the Connecticut screamo band. The original version is found on Jeromes Dream’s debut album, ‘Seeing Means More Than Safety’, which was released in 2000 on Old Glory Records.

“Jeromes Dream are one of our absolute favourite bands, getting to cover them for charity is a real honour,” explains the band. “We recorded this track with Alfie from Maths in our practise space. It was fun trying to squeeze this onto our tiny stand-up drumkit and recording about a million tracks of guitar and screeching.”

Algae Bloom’s cover of ‘Just Down the Hall from Room 526’ is featured on the upcoming Jeromes Dream tribute compilation, ‘It’s Like An Homage to You’. This will be released on limited 500 cassettes in a 3″x4″ plastic bag with j-card and a folded two-sided insert by Zegema Beach Records and Connine Records, with pre-orders going up on the 1st May and orders shipping out later that month.
