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

Welcome!

Cold Roses

Welcome to the official Cold Roses website! Your home for news, videos, photos, music and more from the hard rocking blues and country-infused band out of Philly.

The site is currently under construction, but feel free to poke around, see the sights, and check out our new song “The One You Love.”

And while you’re here, read some awesome Press about us recently:

“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 [Brandon Porter – Bass, R.M Webb – Drums] 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
