We first heard from Alive Like A Suicide in December of last year upon the release of their debut single, “Skeleton Bedsheets.” That track introduced The Static Dive readers to a talented and eclectic three piece from Australia. Their sound mixes elements of pop, rock and hip-hop into something completely new.
Since dropping that debut the band has released a total of four singles. Their multi-genre experiments have struck a chord with independent music fans around the world with tracks like pop/punk “Up on the Punk Side.” With their latest, the band explores the hard rock vibes of the fabulous 1980’s.
“Blood Rose” is the brand new single from Alive Like a Suicide, released worldwide via all major streaming services on June 1, 2022. Clocking in at just over six minutes, the track is an epic tale told in lovelorn poetry, multi-part vocal harmonies, metal guitar acrobatics and a healthy dose of art rock complexity. It’s a fun ride for any fan of big hair, smoke machines and killer solos.
Check out “Blood Rose” below. You can also hear the song on the Deep Indie Dive playlist, or listen on your favorite streaming service. We had the chance to chat with the band about the new song.
