When listening to THE NEW ROSES for the first time, it might seem as though they come from one of the larger cities of the US West Coast, but far from it. Neither L.A. nor San Francisco is home to this four-piece, but rather the Rheingau, more particular the area around Wiesbaden in Germany. THENEW ROSES are one of the most promising new discovery of the German rock scene!
“If you love traditional rock music, you mostly get nothing but pitiful looks from other members of your generation who are involved in New Metal or German Pop,” Timmy Rough admits, “but it has the clear advantage that you don’t have to take creative consideration.” And so, the love for Rock’n’Roll is nurtured and cherished.
Urban Berz and Timmy Rough have played in what feels like thousands of bands. But there was always just a tiny bit of luck missing. And so, the two of them kept looking for companions who share their love for different artists like BB King, Guns’N’Roses, AC/DC, Kid Rock, Bruce Springsteen,Rose Tattoo, Aerosmith, Metallica or The Black Crowes.
THE NEW ROSES were born, and therefore a massive Rock’n’Roll monster with clear intentions right from the beginning, to go out on the streets and fill the world with sound, and these men do this with an incredible amount of energy that quickly became well-known in the scene.
For their first and self-financed album „Without A Trace“ THE NEW ROSES received excellent reviews in national and international rock magazines.
Thomas Kupfer of Rock Hard (GER) honors THE NEW ROSES as one of the best bands of the local Rock’n’Roll scene! The ROCKS (GER) writes: “On their debut album ‘Without A Trace’, THENEW ROSES celebrate bold, dirty Rock’n’Roll. In general, THE NEW ROSES rock anywhere and anytime!” And the online portal FINEST VINYL says: “There is no band that’s more exciting when it comes to rock in Germany.” The high number of shows that THE NEW ROSES have been booked for in the last two years proves that this kind of music played by a German band can and does work.
The band has played around 200 shows in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Spain, sharing the stage with acts like ZZ Top, John Lord (Deep Purple), Die Toten Hosen, The Temperance Movement, Accept, Black Stone Cherry or The Quireboys.
With their song „Without A Trace,“ Timmy and his companions made it onto the compilation for the cult biker TV series “Sons Of Anarchy” and it was also the song for the “Sons Of Anarchy” trailer campaign in Germany. In 2015, THE NEW ROSES will reach a new level!
In February 2015, THE NEW ROSES signed an international record deal with the renowned labelNAPALM RECORDS (Universal).
Since then, the music press around the globe has been writing about the „rock sensation from Germany“ signing this deal.
In the first three days following the PR release alone, more than 100 media outlets from Asia, theUSA and Europe reported about the musicians from Wiesbaden. These included, for example, theNEWS CHINA, BRAVEWORDS, which is the largest rock music portal in Canada, the“Musikwoche”, Germany’s leading music industry magazine and the Los Angeles-based global Public Relations network A&R WORLDWIDE.
Highlights in 2015 were and are for sure the shows at the UEFA CHAMPIONS FESTIVAL 2015 in Berlin, the headliner show at the Hamburg Harley Days with approximately 50.000 Harley riders and over 500.000 visitors, the Swiss Harley Days in Lugano and the shows as special guest of Accept in Hannover (DE), Leipzig (DE), Saarbrücken (DE), Budapest (HU), Paris (FR) and Grenoble (FR).
At the moment, the rock workaholics are working on songs for the follow-up album. The songwriting is in full swing, so they can enter the studio in June with an extensive collection of new songs.
The release of the new album is planned for spring 2016.
Until the album release THE NEW ROSES will tour extensively in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and France. Over 30 shows in interesting cities like Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Bilbao, etc. are currently confirmed.
A storm is coming! Fingers X
