about

The Sick Rose
Someplace Better 2018 - biography

Leading Garage Band in the 80's with the groundbreaking Faces album, The Sick Rose evolved through the decades into adulthood as a true r'n'r band, beyond all typical stereotypes, with critically acclaimed works like Blastin' Out in 2006 and No
Need For Speed in 2011. Someplace Better, the band's 7th album released in 2018, represents the sum total of all their influences and experiences: from the raw garage rock of the early days to the more polished powerpop of today.

In addition to an incessant live activity all over Europe, sharing the stage with international acts like The Lyres, The Stems, The Fuzztones, The Chesterfield Kings, The Nomads to name a few, the band's career has been highlighted by several
renowned collaborations in the recording studio. In 2004 Australian singer/songwriter Dom Mariani (The Stems / DM3) helps the band in their decisive turning point towards a more sophisticated pop sound, producing the albums Blastin'Out and in 2009 No Need For Speed. In 2017 the Sick Rose meets with American songwriter/producer Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star, R.E.M.), the proficuous encounter gives life to Someplace Better.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


To celebrate its 35th birthday, The Sick Rose releases then a new studio album!
SOMEPLACE BETTER is the group's seventh LP, and this time the record was produced by American singer, songwriter, producer Ken Stringfellow (R.E.M., Posies, Big Star, Markey Ramone Band).

For the first time, the band has recorded only originals. The eleven songs are the sum of all The Sick Rose's musical influences - from the Garage Rock of the early days, to the R'n'R of the 2nd album Shaking Street, on to the Power Pop characterising the group's later records. The new album is partly inspired by the sound of bands from the early 1980s, such as Records, 20/20 and Shoes.

SOMEPLACE BETTER comes out of a constant search for new ways of expression, while ignoring transient fashions and knowing always how to be in the right place at the wrong time.
