Fiery fivesome, ROSEN, release a powerful new single, Riot, on Friday 16th
ROSEN are an extremely dynamic and culturally diverse unit. The quintet are
comprised of members hailing from Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark and Iran.

Bizkit and Faith No More, through to Korn and Cypress Hill.
With lyrical themes that cast views on social commentary, the band’s debut
single, High Tech Low Life, touches on social media and narcissism.
While their forthcoming single, Riot, addresses
the current political climate of censorship, ignorance and a lack of

guitarist Matt came up with some really cool riffs influenced by Korn and
Rage Against the Machine, and the chorus just screamed “Riot” at me, so that
was the starting point for the song. I wrote the lyrics from the point of
view of Antifa activists, as I’d been watching their anti-free speech riots
at Berkeley in 2017.”
ROSEN deliver Riot through all stores on Friday 16th March, and the
crossover crew plan to release further singles and a tour throughout the
