On The Table Read, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, alt-rock band Roseburg have released their first single in more than two years, Alice.
Quartet Roseburg is made up of musicians Zach Knell, Samuel Sheppard (YesterKid), Keith Lambson (Dryggs) and Soren Buchert. Formed in Roseburg, Oregon, the band now reside in Utah, as they continue to bring their anthemic energy to listeners around the globe.
The night Knell and Sheppard met in December 2016, when they were both serving as missionaries in the small town of Roseburg, they wrote the beginnings of what became the band’s second single, Identity Prices.
After parting, they remained in communication via handwritten letters (mission rules) and made plans to form a band when they returned home. Since then, they’ve formed their fundamental sound and likened musical persona into an adrenalised, alternative rock sensation.
Following a two and a half year silence, their new single, Alice, was written by Knell when he was just 16 years old, but has truly stood the test of time.
“We felt the innocence of it was a perfect way to come back to this band after our 2-year-hiatus. All of our new music is meant to feel familiar,” he explained.
Alice bursts with reverberating vibrancy, centering themes of purpose, life, love and higher powers, they inject their darker, more thoughtful undertones to create the perfect blend of euphoria. Soaring back into the scene, their charismatic choruses collide with gripping riffs and echoic vocal energy, to form a truly remarkable kaleidoscope of sound.
“Alice is Roseburg’s return to innocence and simplicity,” said Bassist Buchert.
“It’s become emblematic of us revisiting our foundation. We’ve gotten to go back to when things were easy and hopeful and full of magic, and we’re ready to bring all that back to our fans,” explained the band.
Roseburg have a timeless human touch and a knack for remaining modern and polished. With features on major rock and alternative Spotify editorial playlists, the quirky quartet have amassed millions of listeners and streams alike.
Featuring on the cover of Alternative Press magazine during the release of their debut album, Righteous Punk, their ‘Intro to Roseburg’, origin story went viral in Oregon, quickly making the band ones to watch.
Collaborating with viral social media stars Dylan Jordan and Summer McKeen, their video for “Stay Golden” amassed humbling attention around the globe. Continuing to gain momentum across their repertoire, they spiked the interest of mentor and friend Kellin Quinn (Sleeping With Sirens), who later features on Roseburg’s single, “RIP”. With plenty more on the horizon, it looks like 2022 marks the start of Roseburg’s next chapter.
