Well folks, it’s almost here. Our first full length album is coming down the home stretch. It’s only been a little over a month, but it’s felt like an long, amazing journey…

TRACKING 10505418_738896672823108_3147472269230883382_n

Monday, June 2nd

We walked into Miner Street recordings in Philly…a relatively unassuming little place that, in reality, was a recording wet dream! The huge ceilings, natural lighting, oh…and the incredibly sick gear could not be beat! We spent the first few days laying down rhythm tracks for all 11 songs on the new album.10389684_10154207872860181_623533612541144128_n Then we layered on guitars, keys, organ, sax, trumpet, melodica, synth, dog barking….all kinds of amazing things that you’ll just have to listen for. Ten studio days, 6 dozen Federal Donuts, 12 cases of water, about 2 packs of Ginger beer, a shit load of felafel, and one free pizza later, and we finished tracking. Special thanks to our engineer Matt Schimelfenig who, for one, put up with us for a whole two weeks, and two, did such a god damn kick ass job recording us and getting the sweetest tones, that our minds were blown. Thanks man! 10426342_726007574112018_5058582312953171965_n 10371754_726718610707581_531325299447137290_n

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THEN WE TOOK A WEEK OFF!

To cleanse the musical palate, and not totally murder each other, we took a few days off before mixing began.

 

 

MIXING

Friday, June 27th

1468632_737459062966869_4667979672414234150_nOur fearless drummer/producer/engineer guy R. M. Webb took a leisurely bike ride down to South Philly and Cambridge Sound Studios. Home of Jim Salamone, Cambridge is a kick ass studio with amazing gear and even cooler ambiance. There, Robby set up shop, and there he has been ever since…slaving away at the mixing board making us sound halfway decent and making this record sound absolutely incredible.

So 3 cheers to Robby Webb as he puts the finishing touches on mixing what will be our first full length studio album. After this, it’s on to Mastering, and then, soon after, straight to your ear balls!

So get ready planet earth. New Cold Roses music is coming your way…and we’ll be coming to a town near you soon after.

 

Also, let us take a moment to thank EVERYONE who donated to our indiegogo campaign! Without you, none of this…none of it would be possible! You are the reason we’re here, and why we do what we do. Recording this album has been amazing, but it means nothing without the fans, family, and support we get from you….so again and for all time THANK YOU!!!!

-Love

Rock and Roll Thrives on Halloween at the TLA

TLA Halloween Marquee

We wanted to take a minute and reflect on the absolutely incredible time we had last Saturday, joining our compatriots in Philly rock, Stolen Rhodes, Black Stars, and Kid Felix, for a mind-blowing Halloween party at the TLA.

Together with a an amazing crowd of ghouls, goblins, a couple of Marios, and a gigantic gerbil (thanks Vince), we took part in a testament to the power of rock and roll. Everyone was on their A game, and with the help of some seriously sexy burlesque dancers and some pumping DJ tunes, the night was absolutely unreal.

Cold Roses at the TLA

For us in Cold Roses, the whole thing went by too quickly. We left everything on the stage though, and together we spent the night watching our favorite bands do the same.

Not until the next day did it start to dawn on us that we had just played one of the most iconic stages in the city, with some of our best friends in the scene, in front of the best crowd Philly had to offer.

So I wanted to thank all the people that made that possible; Justin, Vince, Edwin, and the rest of the Dobbs crew. We love you guys. The Chive for doing what you do best. All of the bands; we love playing music with you guys…and Dan and Matt, We Believe In Rock and Roll! And finally, all of our fans and all of the new Cold Roses converts. You’re why we do this, and it wouldn’t have been half as fun playing this show without you guys front row.

Thanks you guys, and see ya’ll Friday the 8th at The Bitter End in NYC.

Whew…that was a long weekend!

Hollystock 2013

Holy shit, are we tired!

This was one hell of a never-ending weekend of gigs folks, and we’re just starting to recover from it.

We started the insanity Friday at Dave and Busters in Philly, opened for The Slim Kings (featuring Liberty Devvito of Billy Joel’s band) and the Nick Clemmons Band. (Nick’s the son of Clarence Clemmons, Bruce’s sax player) It was a rip-roaring good time, and thanks to all our fans out there, we packed the place!

It was cool meeting Liberty Devvito too…that dude is one class act:

The next morning there was no rest for the wicked. We had to be up and at ‘em early to get over to Mt. Holly, NJ for their first annual Hollystock Music Festival!

We had a nice little stage in the shade right next to the beer garden. So needless to say, we were happy campers out there with all the drunks. But we were also among good company, playing alongside incredible bands like Black Stars, The Defused, Kid Felix, and more.

Thanks to Break the Glass Photography for these great shots!

After rocking the stage outside, and hanging with one of our favorite bass players, Stolen Rhodes’ Dan Hass, we packed up the cars and drove north to Puck in Doylestown, PA for a nightcap of a show with our buds The Rivals! The night ended with everyone on stage plowing our way through the Beatles “Don’t Let Me Down,” The Band’s “The Weight,” and eventually “La Bamba.”

I can’t remember much after that one.

Now it’s back to bed. But thanks to all of our friends, fans, and family for coming out to any or all of our shows this weekend! And a big thanks to all the bands we played with. This barrage of gigs was way too much fun.
