Along with producer Martin Ehrencrona (In Solitude, Mattias Alkberg/Södra Sverige, Les Big Byrd, Beast) the band went into the bunker known as Studio Cobra to follow up their critically acclaimed debut Disease. The result is 34 minutes of dark rock music, straight up, no fuzz.
Grande Roses sophomore album follow the same path as it’s precursor. Short songs, grinding guitars and if the music seems to have gotten a little lighter, the lyrics digs itself deeper into the active unawareness of today.

Grande Roses started 2004. Later that summer Göran would play at a festival in Duved and had scrapped up a few Waylon Jennings hits. All that was missing before the gig was someone to play pedal steel. He was given a number to a guy in Östersund. It turned out that the guy had never played the pedal steel. Göran tried to get him to play bass, but he took a guitar. It was the first time Göran met Johan in Grande Roses. They left the gig behind them and together they recorded a demo with post-apocalyptic rock, was signed to a label, split up and got back together again. Took a long break. Found back to eachother again. Got signed by major label. Got kicked out.
Basic band stuff.
