“Whoever said rock and roll was dead must have just given up.”

“Philadelphia’s own Cold Roses have released one hell of a rock ‘n’ roll abum,
No Silence in the City, a rollicking and raw collection of eleven songs.”

—  The Swollen Fox

“With their formidable debut full-length album, No Silence in the City,
Philly rockers Cold Roses demonstrate what it means to live and breathe
the essence of rock and roll…This is a soulful, dirty, wickedly fun album;
one I’ll be blasting all around this city.”

—  Jane Roser, That Mag

“Though they’re from Philly, Cold Roses sound like they’re straight out of a Texas roadhouse with their old-style country rock/blues combo.”

—  WXPN’s The Key

“Always a pleasure to see these guys play. They have [a] pop, blues, rock vibe. Very practiced, very tight. They’ve grown a lot over the last year or so. Very committed to the sound as a whole…The harmonies are great, great crowd reaction, great set. (on Cold Roses’ performance at the 1st Annual Liberty Music Fest)

—  That Music Magazine

“Philly’s Cold Roses borrowed their name from a Ryan Adams song, and their sound from country rockers like Neil Young, The Band and Kings of Leon. Robert Clancy, the band’s leader, is not afraid of an incendiary, electro-powered guitar solo, nor does he shy away from the sweetness of close, soaring harmonies. His rhythm section cranks a hard-punching, slow-moving beat that embodies perseverance, blunted longing and a wary acknowledgement of the worst-case scenario. “Let Me Go,” the big crowd pleaser, arouses thirsts that can’t be entirely quenched by a longneck, an aching for true love, a good fistfight and the open road.”

—  J. Kelly, Philadelphia Weekly
