The New Roses release music video for “Down by the River”

After successful live appearances all over the world, lately opening for KISS, and the invitation to tour with the legendary Scorpions in summer, the four-piece, centered around vocalist/guitarist Timmy Rough is ready to deliver the long awaited follow up for “One for the Road” (2017), which hit the top 20 in Germany.

A reasonably priced car hire (100€ for 5 days + 55€ gasoline) and a couple of hours later, we were at the festival site, getting accredited and then off to Immeln (some 40km away – near a lake) where some reasonably priced and idyllic cabin was hired (75€/pp for 5 days) perhaps a little too far from civilization as we found out…
