Since Rosevelt was formed June 2009, they have been living out the dream in the local music scene. This dream is simple: to blaze trails of their own among the footsteps of local indie music greats.
The spirit of Rosevelt is best summed up in their public debut at Indie Youth Fest 2009: indie, young, and in the serious business of a good rockin time.
Within the same year, they were honoured with a slot in Rock The World 2009 and it has been the ride of their lives ever since. Rosevelt has had the pleasure of playing live at various venues, such as The Library, Laundry Bar, and Urbanattic, as well as many events including Fly FM Campur Chart, Youth ‘10, and Urbanscapes 2010.
So what kind of rock music exactly do they play? Some say Hard Melodic Rock, some say Alternative Rock. They say the kind of rock that will have you headbanging till you get a massive whiplash the next day. That’s if you let yourself go.
Their single Madicine, which debuted in June 2010, made it to XFM Underground TOP 25, spent 8 weeks at the top of Cravecharts, peaked at No.4 on Traxx FM’s Upstage Chart and was Number 1 on Hitz FM’s MET 10 for 2 weeks in a row.
17th July 2011 saw Rosevelt announced as the opening act for Incubus live in KL on the 23rd of July. This was a historic moment for the band because if it weren’t for Incubus, Rosevelt wouldn’t have existed. Big fans of Incubus since forever, the band was quoted saying,
“Keep working towards your dreams, cause in our case it really did come true.”
Rosevelt will be releasing their debut album in December 2011 and it comes with a few exciting surprises.
