Rosebleed- A very promising Band

Rosebleed is a 5 piece alternative experimental rock band from Athens, Greece with male vocals. The members of the band came together in 2004. Rosebleed believe that music has to evolve into something better and new as the years go by, so thats what they're trying to do by experimentation and by not imprisoning their creativity in one specific genre of music. The band has a wide range of influences from classic bands like the cure and nick cave and the bad seeds to modern rock bands like placebo and many more. Enjoy the music!!!
