Andrew Roth, who started the band "In Space" in 2011, started playing the drums for a band called "Random" at age 9. Random recorded 2 albums and Andrew was playing up and down Sunset Blvd at Whisky a Go Go (played with "Zebrahead") Coconut Teaszer, the Rainbow Room, The Roxy, etc. Random also played with "The Calling" & "Ashley Simpson" at The Knitting Factory and performe,d at other Hollywood venues, the largest venue being The Palace. By the time he was 12 yrs old he had been on 4 tours and played in 6 States.
At 13 Andrew started his own band, Sofa Kingdom, where he wrote songs, sang, and switched to the guitar. Sofa Kingdom recorded 2 albums. During that time Andrew also got the opportunity to take part in the KLUC Superstar Show at “The Joint” inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. There he played for Grammy Award winning producers.
When he was 14 he started a Screamo band called Against the World which was subsequently changed to This Fall. They played at various Los Angeles venues where they were on the bill with "Death by Stereo" at Whisky a go go and other prominent bands of the day. They had a big local following and were in the midst of recording a demo with a Producer from The Schecter Guitar Company when, unfortunately, the band broke up. During this time he also had the opportunity to attend Power Chord Academy and make his first music video.
Next came the band “A Reason and a Purpose” where Andrew continued writing songs and singing, but this time his instrument of choice was keyboards. Then came a period of introspection where Andrew mostly recorded and wrote songs in his studio. He started playing locally with a band called Minor White where he continued to write and record songs and play guitar, that is also where he met his current drummer Cory Callahan.
Minor White eventually split up and Andrew/Cory created a band called In Space. In Space is an Alternative/Shoe Gaze/Space Rock band started in 2011. The band has influences from Shoegaze bands such as Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, and Starflyer 59 to more influential bands such as The Smiths and The Velvet Underground. They try to emulate all their influences that they have learned over the years and make their own style of shoe gazing rock music mixed with contemporary modern classical grooves!
