There are at least 3 bands with the name Romance.
1. a post-punk/indie rock band from Seattle
2. a UK rock band who sometimes write their name as R O M A N C E

1. Romance is the name of a Seattle based indie band producing music in the early 80's post-punk style with elements of Joy Division, The Chameleons and The Sound.
They formed in late 2005 and shortly after released their debut EP - When Things Are Better. Lead by their single Paris Is Burning KEXP and other radio stations put the EP in regular rotation. This lead to fans voting them as one of the top four up and coming bands in Seattle.
Recently Romance had a line up change with the addition of new drummer Joshua Fant (ex-Post Stardom Depression). They released their debut full length album The Divide in the fall of 2008. It is now in rotation on many indie radio stations and the single Face On The Sun was chosen as the song of the day on KEXP.
Romance has toured extensively and have played many high profile gigs, including opening for The Chameleons, Peter Murphy, The Sisters Of Mercy and playing the SXSW and Bumbershoot festivals.
Romance is currently working on a new CD to be released in 2010.
