Certain genres of music start as a mystery. Usually, a body of bands at a specific time begin experimenting with certain similar sounds or themes. Once the genre is established, fans then spend eons arguing who really started it, or which band epitomized that scene. Sometimes, these bands are filling a void and bringing together influences from other genres in ways that no one had stumbled upon before. But every so often, a band with either clarity of vision or a unique take on a classic sound can launch a genre all by themselves. Something about their aesthetic or sonic profile makes a legion of fans turn their heads and say, ‘Oh, cool — now that’s my kinda’ rock and roll!

German rock and roll band, The New Roses are a blend of modern mixed with classic rock. They are a confident group… They don’t bashfully kick around familiar styles and techniques. Yes, there’s a degree of “retro” as it is with so many breakout artists. The single, “Glory Road” is a tale of America’s rife that screams with heads-down no-nonsense power chords. Singer, Timmy Rough sounds great and is brimming with effervescent ideas.  The New Roses don’t pussy about with any bullshit shtick. Nor will they ever lose their shadow and morph into something they aren’t… They do it and they do it with gusto!

We love their new single, “Glory Road”. It’s a roaring anthem of turbo-charged riff rock; and  could very well be a timeless radio classic as well as becoming  a slice of revolt.  It defines a sound that could become a proverbial rock and roll anthem. The New Roses have toured the U.S. and are scheduled  a nautical voyage on the famous KISS Krusie IX in Oct of this year… Their new album, “Nothing But Wild” can be found on Napalm Records…
