Cold Roses are back in the recording studio today recording our new single “The One You Love.”
Our first recording in over a year, this song is the first to feature our new lineup, including R.W. Webb on drums and Alex Ayala on keys. With the new lineup comes a little bit of a new sound for us…but don’t fret, we haven’t lost that gritty edge you love us for.
This time around we’re in a local recording studio right in the heart of Philly, and putting everything together ourselves from recording to mastering. It’s a sweet set up and a big departure from our previous recording sessions in Atlanta, Georgia last year.
Well, I gotta get back to tracking.
Keep an eye out for updates as we finish our new single, and get into full swing on our first full-length album later this fall!
We here at Cold Roses are incredibly humbled and stoked to announce that legendary Philly rock station 9.33 WMMR, have named us their Local Shots Artist of the Month for June!
All of us in the band grew up listening to MMR blast the some of the most kick ass tunes ever recorded. But where other stations just play the hits, MMR goes above and beyond, and turns the spotlight on local music, and the entire Philly scene. Over the years the station, and the superbly cool Paul Jaxon, have done a lot to promote amazing local acts and venues, and exposed everyone in the city to music they’d never hear otherwise.
Today, we get to join an incredible list of Artist of the Month bands as we start our reign.
June is ours, so let’s get rockin’ people! Join us all month for shows along the east coast, and don’t miss our WMMR Artist of the Month Showcase at the Legendary Dobbs. We’ve got some surprises for you folks 😉
In April of 2012, Cold Roses packed up our tour van (actually a white Dodge Caravan named “Tugger”) and drove through the night from Philly to Atlanta, Georgia to record our first EP.
It was a little crowded, and it took about 16 hours and a shit ton of no-doze pills and Red Bulls, but we made it safe, sound, and a little smelly, to EST Audio.
What ensued for the next 10 days was a whirlwind recording marathon…waking up at 10am, tracking till 3am, drinking whiskey, passing out, and doing it all over again the next day. When all was said and done, we had 10 songs (6 of which would end up on the album), a bunch of new buddies, and a shit ton of ridiculous stories.
To see what it was all like, here’s a video compilation of our misadventures recording “The Georgia Fugue” in Atlanta, and our good ol’ time mastering the album with Jim Salamone at Cambridge Sound Studios.
