Video Premiere: Rosen – “Riot”

Fiery fivesome, Rosen, release a powerful new single, Riot, on Friday 16th March.

Rosen are an extremely dynamic and culturally diverse unit. The quintet are comprised of members hailing from Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark and Iran. Now residing in London, and featuring Frisco (drums), Matt Ress (guitar), Kam Ikaze (bass), Cole Sław (keys), and Frhetoric (vocals), Rosen arrived on the scene last year and are already creating a stir for their politically triggered hip-hop/nu metal fusion which takes influence spanning from Limp 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 purpose. Vocalist Frhetoric remarks about the creation of the single:

Our 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 Spring.
