ROSALINE Adds New Dates and Venues to ‘The Gnarlie Sheen Tour’ with A Faylene Sky, As Artifacts, and American Mantra

Posted in News with tags , , , on April 29, 2011 by Randy

Chicago, IL’s ROSALINE recently announced their inclusion in the upcoming ‘Gnarlie Sheen Tour’ with A Faylene Sky, As Artifacts, and American Mantra, which is touring the U.S. now! More dates and venues have just been added, so make sure to check out the current tour date list below!

AbsolutePunk.net recently debuted the music video for ‘Model Ships’, cut from the band’s 2010 GOOD FIGHT MUSIC debut, The Vitality Theory. Head to this link to check out the video! Videographer and editor credits go to Brian Peyrot of BP Productions in Chicago, IL. The video was filmed in two locations in Chicago, IL; the live setting took place in a stadium-sized sports complex, and the side story was filmed in an abandoned brewery. The story behind the video reaches back to 2005 when the guys were in high school, as the lyrics on the wall are recreations representing the lyrics that the band wrote throughout the last six years.

ROSALINE’s single ‘Model Ships’ is available for Rock Band 2 and 3 on Xbox 360! There are two ways that fans can purchase the tracks: 1) at the in-game Music Store, or 2) through the links on the Rock Gamer Studios website where you can either buy the track or download a free trial.
