PANIC ROOM released their debut album Visionary Position in early 2008. In August 2009, it was announced that pre-orders were being taken for their upcoming second studio album Satellite. A UK tour followed through September, October and November 2009 supporting the upcoming release of Satellite. The pre-release version was released in December 2009 with the retail copy released in early 2010. On July 28, 2010 it was announced on the band's website that founding bass player Alun Vaughan had left the band and had been replaced by Yatim Halimi.
On March 4, 2013, Panic room revealed that Paul Davies was leaving the band for personal reasons. Touring commitments were fulfilled with Morpheus Rising guitarist Pete Harwood filling the void left by Davies. Following the culmination of the tour, Swansea musician, Adam O'Sullivan, was drafted in as a session guitarist for the recording of the band's fourth album, entitled "Incarnate", and the subsequent tour.
In 2015 Steve Rothery Band and Mr So&So guitarist, Dave Foster, appeared onstage with PANIC ROOM as a session player on their Wildfire Tour and also played on their Kickstarter funded acoustic album 'Essence', before subsequently joining the band as a full member.
Gavin Griffiths performs with former Marillion vocalist Fish, whilst Yatim Halimi and Dave Foster perform with Fish's former band mate Steve Rothery in the Steve Rothery Band. Panic Room's principle songwriters, Anne-Marie Helder and Jonathan Edwards also write and perform together outside of Panic Room with their acoustic project, Luna Rossa. In addition to this, Helder has been a member of Mostly Autumn since 2007; Griffiths was also a member of Mostly Autumn between 2009 and 2014.
