Rome to launch all new album 'Gates Of Europe' in August
🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Out via Trisol Music Group on the 25th of August 2023 is the all new Rome album “Gates Of Europe”. And as you will notice Jerome Reuter’s musical project Rome again connects to its Ukrainian audience apart from the occasional live appearance.

Since 2015, shortly after Ukraine’s Revolution of Dignity and Russia’s covert invasion of the Donbass, the Luxembourgish singer-songwriter has regularly been including various Ukrainian cities on his European tours. Furthermore, Rome happened to give solo performances in Kyiv and Odesa only a few days before Russia’s full-scale invasion in February 2022; a time at which foreign residents and visitors were urged most strongly to leave the country at once.

A few months later, after having played several online charity shows in support of Ukraine, he returned for a solo appearance and thus was the first foreign artist to play a full-set show on Ukrainian soil since the beginning of the war. This appearance in July 2022 was used to gather donations for a refugee shelter in Lviv. In addition to that, one year to the day after Reuter’s last appearance in Kyiv, Rome played two already legendary full band shows in Lviv and Kyiv to commemorate the first anniversary of the beginning of the war.

Below are some videos that documented Jerome Reuter’s support for Ukraine.

“Gates Of Europe” starts off with a burst of the sounds of February 24th, 2022, the beginning of the full-scale invasion and proceeds almost chronologically through the first year of war. The 14 songs offer a glimpse on the inner life of a country that against all expectations is facing the storm with absolute resolve and courage.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
