PREMIERE: Discover your new favorite “aggressive pop” band, Rosedale

1724
Rosedale

Mike Liorti has been making music since 2004 under the moniker of Rosedale, first as a full-fledged band then later as a one-man project (but still with fully fleshed out rock songs). Liorti describes his songs as “aggressive pop,” which is accurate—Rosedale’s new, self-titled album brings to mind mid-’00s pop-punk staples like the Starting Line and Say Anything, both from the catchiness aspect as well as the deep and at times profound lyrical honesty not seen often in music these days. Liorti explains:

“This album was a long time coming and I worked extremely hard on it. From the very first day of tracking to the duplication of the physical hard copies, there was absolutely no settling. That’s exactly what Rosedale stands for: not letting anybody—yourself included—tell you something is impossible or that it’s too much work, no matter the obstacles.”

Rosedale’s Rosedale will be released February 23 and can be pre-ordered here.
