Originally a five-piece group, when De Rosa broke up in 2003, three years after their inception, vocalist Martin John Henry decided to re-form the group instead of ending things completely, bringing on brothers Neil Woodside (on drums) and James Woodside (on bass, melodica, and mandolin). After a year spent working in the studio, De Rosa's debut album, Mend, was released on Chemikal Underground, and later that year guitarist Chris Connick, who had played on much of the record, as well as having toured with them previously, officially joined the band. After their second album, Prevention, was released in 2009, they decided to part ways once again, this time seemingly for good. However, their cult following continued to grow, eventually warranting their return in 2012. The new lineup reverted back to the three founding members, Martin John Henry and brothers Neil and James Woodside. Upon their re-formation they instantly began working on new material, resulting in their third studio album, Weem, in 2015.
