Acroma (formerly known as No Release) is an alternative rock band formed in Salt Lake City, Utah. The band consists of Jeremy Stanley (vocalist), Brian Christensen (guitarist), Tom Collins (bassist), and Joshua Zirbel (drummer). No Release began developing a small following in Salt Lake City after releasing a three-song demo. In 2002, one of the band's tracks was heard by label Universal Records on a compilation album. Soon after, Univeral signed the fledgling band to a record deal. The newly named Acroma enlisted Tool producer Sylvia Massy to produce their first album.
