The Rock and Roll Report Has a Listen to The Rosebuds


These days, having a band create and put out a concept album, an album where all the songs create a storyline, is almost unheard of. But that’s just what Raleigh, North Carolina band The Rosebuds have done with their new release, Night of the Furies.

Husband and wife duo of Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp were trying to wait out tropical storm Ernesto in the summer of 2006 when they conjured up stories about “the furies”. The furies being Roman Goddesses who ‘were born of night and punish crimes on Earth that go unpunished.’ When everything was said and done, Howard and Crisp had created the story that became Night of the Furies, the latest release of Howard and Crisp as The Rosebuds.
