Devils Rose: psychobilly/punk from Baldwin Park, CA
Complete the sentence. Devils Rose is...
A punk/psychobilly band from Baldwin Park, California.
What sets you apart from other psychobilly bands?
Everyone in the band listens to different music. Anthony(the new drummer) listens to AC/DC, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. Nelson(upright bass) listens to ska and punk. Johan(singer/guitarist) likes hardcore punk and metal so we feel like all of our styles make the songs unique.
What does it mean to you to have the opportunity to play Ink n Iron later this year?
It's huge for us. We're playing with X, Stiff Little Fingers, Hepcat, The Bronx and the Aggrolites. We really got to step it up that night to complete with these great bands.
If you could write and perform a song with one artist, who would you choose?
Johan: It would be Mike Ness of Social Distortion.
Nelson: Koefte Deville of Mad Sin.
Anthony: Johnny Cash.
What would you be doing if you weren't making music?
We'd be working at a music store.
