"For the past decade, Spirit In The Room has been the main musical outlet for Dennis Sanders (who also is/was a member of Wes Borland’s band Black Light Burns), and if you’re unfamiliar, picture Josh Homme fronting Nine Inch Nails and doing Nick Cave covers, and that should give you a pretty good idea of what Spirit In The Room sounds like.”

Originally started by Dennis Sanders (who has served as guitar tech as well as bandmember alongside Wes Borland) as a studio project in Oakland back in 2009, Spirit In The Room has since grown into an intense live experience. The band has been described by Kerrang! Magazine “as ‘a challenge to categorize’, their music taking in everything from Black Sabbath, Refused, and Nine Inch Nails to The Birthday Party, Jesus Lizard, and Joy Division.” Spirit In The Room has opened for Deftones and Crosses (Chino Moreno’s side project) as well as The Mentors and Scour (Philip Anselmo’s side project), and, securing a solid lineup after numerous changes over the years, plans to tour extensively in 2020.
The upcoming “But It Do” single was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Dennis Sanders at his home studio in Hollywood, CA. The b-side release, “Sunset Nightmare” features guest vocals from the legendary Keith Morris (Black Flag, Circle Jerks, OFF!). It will be released October 31st digitally. Preorder, here.
Accompanying dog-themed merch (shirts, stickers, patches) will raise money for Best Friends Animal Society.
