darkwave postpunk trio from New York featuring George Grant of The Final Sound / Voltaire
with special guests
The Shadow Event
and Doors in the Labyrinth
Created by instrumentalist, producer and engineer George Grant in 2018, Black Rose Burning is a unique combination of Goth, Postpunk, Synthwave, Rock and Shoegaze. The project comes bearing multi-generational influences accepting no boundaries, but still maintaining an overall succinct flow and feel.
40 years of solid songwriting (across many genres) has helped George embellish on hooks reminiscent of a host of 1980s bands, and BRB does some very creative dusting off, updating and recreation of this early “alternative magic”. Fans of a whole new breed of bands such as Drab Majesty, Actors, Twin Tribes and Creux Lies will enjoy the extremely soulful vocals, unique grooves and top level instrumentation captured here. Described as “postgothic-earworms”, BRB creates mini stories within each unique song.
Both albums were recorded in George’s own studio, PV Recording Company, which has hosted a wide variety of acts and artists including: Voltaire (with whom he played bass for 10 years), Chibi (The Birthday Party Massacre), Emelio Zeff China (Peter Murphy), Knox Chandler (Siouxsie And The Banshees), Paul Bakija (Reagan Youth) and Ego Likeness.
A live band is also been assembled in the form of guitarist Frank Morin (World Inferno Friendship Society), and drummer Luis Infantas (Monster Zero).
