Blending old-soul blues and country with a young rock energy, the Cold Roses have developed a pure sound with a gritty, gravely edge that “makes Johnny Cash sound like T-Rex.” With a groove that sounds older than any of them could be, Cold Roses use deeply personal, whiskey soaked lyrics and "crank a hard-punching, slow-moving beat that embodies perseverance, blunted longing and a wary acknowledgement of the worst-case scenario" (PW).

They are known for high-energy shows, supporting communities fighting for justice, and issuing well-honed blasts of sonic energy. They are releasing their self produced full length vinyl album later this fall.
