There are two band with the same name:
1) A five-piece punk band formed in the first half of 1978 in UK, Roses Are Red suffered a series of personnel changes before a March 1979 line-up featuring Chris Thompson (vocals) and Nicky Hallam (guitar) with Vibrators members Greg Van Cook, Ian "Knox" Carnochan and John "Eddie" Edwards recorded "Can't Understand / Your Love Is Like A Ballistic Missile" 7" single at Elephant Studios, London, and privately issued it in June, receiving positive responses.
2) Roses Are Red's music is a bittersweet mixture of beauty and power, hailed as "the next big thing" by AbsolutePunk.net and with lyrics described as "intelligent" by Alternative Press Magazine.
Roses Are Red's live performance, graceful yet explosive, has allowed their music to strike the hearts of fans of every genre under the rock umbrella. The band has toured alongside everyone from Norma Jean and Bullet For My Valentine to Hawthorne Heights and My Chemical Romance, rocking with unbridled energy and emotion, night after night. Playing select dates of the 2004 Warped Tour on the Smartpunk stage, the band won over huge crowds and built great anticipation for for their Trustkill debut, Conversations, which was released in the fall of 2004. The band also returned to the Warped Tour in 2005, playing the Smartpunk Stage yet again alongside Boys Night Out, Armor For Sleep, From First To Last, Emery, and more.
Roses Are Red returns this June with their breathtaking sophomore album, What Became Of Me, one of Alternative Press Magazine's Most Anticipated Albums Of 2006. Produced by Brian McTernan (Thrice, Circa Survive), What Became Of Me is a more intimate, emotional, and dynamic take on the energetic, hook-driven melodic rock that RAR is notorious for. The album is in stores everywhere NOW! Look for Roses Are Red on tour all year long, including the Take Action Tour 2006, the Trustkill Takeover Tour 2006, with label-mates Bedlight For Blue Eyes in July/August, and with A Change Of Pace and Showbread in August/September.
