LES NOUVELLES ROSES on the new single:
“‘The Usual Suspects’ was one of the first songs we recorded for sweet poison and kind of paved the way for all the songs that followed. We all realized that we didn’t want to write about the disappointments and struggles we had to face during all of these lockdowns and be banished from the scene.

No, ‘The Usual Suspects’ made us look to the future, it helped not to forget what we are and who we are: a fucking Rock’n’Roll band! The title says it all: we’re the usual suspects and our fans are the usual suspects. We haven’t changed, we’re not bitter. We’ll be back on the road and we’ll keep swinging where we were meant to stop.

Their last effort, sweet poisonopens with the guitar anthem”My kinda crazy“, which launches the album in a dignified way. In addition to the catchy anthems, sweet poison features authentic American rock tunes like “Play with fire” and “Sweet Gloria.” “War Paint” is undoubtedly a massive track in which the band releases its intangible energy with hard guitar riffs and powerful drums, while “The Usual Suspects” and “1st time for everything” impress with their catchy choruses.

Pieces like “Death of the Night” build on a distinct melody and develop into powerful stadium rock anthems. With songs like “Everything I ever needed”, THE NEW ROSES also show their softer side.

The strong mid-tempo rock ballad revives the atmosphere of Guns N’ Roses’ soulful ballads, while frontman Timmy Rough passionately presents the full range of his voice, which can also be heard impressively on the touching acoustic track. “True love“.

sweet poison is an outstanding rock album with an impressive density of hits, seeing the band outdo themselves again and again, bringing true 80s rock to life. Hold on tight, because THE NEW ROSES shift into high gear and take yourself on a journey to the horizon of American rock greatness!

Timmy Rough on the new album:
When we recorded sweet poison, we’ve taken all of the bad vibes, all of our struggles and disappointments from the past two years and turned them into this incredibly positive and high energy Rock n’ Roll album. We don’t complain at all, we want to move forward and take our audience with us.

We stayed on our musical path, I would even say that we got closer to our roots and added a little more of our Blues and Southern spirit while keeping the catchy melodies of our last records. But hey, talking is cheap, so turn it up and have fun!
