Clean Room returned to the studio to record with a different lineup following the Black Mountain Road LP, this time working as a three piece. Founding member Jeff Halleran joins drummer Matt Steiner (Mother) and Adam Burns on bass to bring new life to five CR songs (tracks 1-5).
The three worked with a streamlined approach to learning the material as a group. The plan was to practice in San Diego, motor it up to Route 2 in Los Angeles to record, then drive down to SD to practice more, then back up to LA to play a quick set at Allstar Lanes a couple nights later.

CR thanked Adam Burns who packed up his bass after the gig, and this lineup would never reunite, but Halleran and Steiner continued to play gigs in San Diego throughout the Summer of 2016. youtu.be/F62hloWa3P4
A couple months later in July, Halleran joined OG CR founding member, drummer Taylor Low and Jason Hartman (Vanishing Kids) who stepped in on bass to record two songs with Madison, WI rock n' roller Bobby Hussy in his private recording studio / rehearsal space. These two songs are in included as bonus tracks, the definitive versions of Flying Low and Behind the Door.
The album art is original work created specially for CR by Madison, WI artist Ashlie Brophy. When her artwork character style caught Halleran's eye late Summer 2016, it was a no-brainer to work perfectly for the then-recently completed music for the Weird Woman EP. The rest, is history...enjoy the tunes, thanks for listening, thanks for your support, and watch for more coming soon from Clean Room.
