If you’d slip a copy of “DEAD MAN’S VOICE” in a stack of Cinderella, Faster Pussycat and Guns’N’Roses albums, even the most passionate 80’s specialists would presume to have stumbled upon a long-lost Westcoast gem! But chillax: THE NEW ROSES actually formed in 2007 – in the not-so-sleazy city of Wiesbaden, Germany.
Which turns the second album by the fourpiece into an even more wondrous affair that lives and breathes catchy hard rock prone to flirt with glam, sleaze and blues. THE NEW ROSES easily enter the ranks of previously mentioned legends or modern acts such as Blackstone Cherry – their bristling anthems are a true breath of fresh air!
The now four-member band was formed by singer/guitarist Timmy Rough and drummer Urban Berz in Wiesbaden in 2007 and in 2012 renamed “THE NEW ROSES”. The band was completed in 2008 by bassist Stefan Kassner and 2012 by guitarist Dizzy Presley and already played concerts opening for ZZ Top, Black Stone Cherry, Joe Bonamassa, Die Toten Hosen, Blackfoot and Roger Chapman . In 2010, the band accompanied the American band Molly Hatchet as an opener on its “Justice World Tour” through Germany and Switzerland.
In May 2014. Stefan Kassner and Dizzy Presley left the band. With Norman Bites (guitar) and Hardy (bass), the line-up was completed shortly afterwards. During 2012 to 2014 THE NEW ROSES played over 150 shows in Germany, Switzerland and Spain. On February 14, 2015 THE NEW ROSES signed an international record deal with Napalm Records . On June 6, 2015 THE NEW ROSES played during their current tour at the invitation of UEFA at Fanfest the Champions League finale in 2015 in Berlin on Brandenburg Gate. For Fall/Winter 2015, the band played several shows again with Accept and in December 2015 with Molly Hatchet on their Germany tour.
The new album “DEAD MAN’S VOICE” will be released on February 26 2016.
