Starting with the most recent tour, the Michigan metalcore outfit recently added Deception of a Ghost’s Kyle Dameron as their new touring guitarist and plans to continue touring nonstop throughout the country.

With their die-hard street team and constant growing fan base – these guys will survive the trends and create music for the masses.
About Nevada Rose:
When you blend pulsating electronic dance hooks seamlessly with elements of hardcore, metal, and pop you’ll have yourself the album Paint Me In Light from the New Jersey band Nevada Rose. The record merges their influences of acts like Skrillex and Zomboy with hardcore bands such as The Devil Wears Prada and A Day To Remember, while allowing their pop sensibility to shine through using three part harmonies and radio worthy melodies. Capitalizing on these elements, the group, which is comprised of Nicki Imperato (vocals), Justin DiMarco (vocals, guitar), Adam Ellenberger (guitar, programming), Dom Delfino (bass) and Jon Beane (drums), are able to shorten the gap between EDM, pop, and hardcore music. This is never more apparent than on their first single Anchors For Sunsets, a song that boasts lines like “If only we were waves, forget the ocean, pushing forward onto better days.”
Paint Me In Light was produced by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, The Word Alive, Motionless in White) and during the process they knew that they had something special with this album “We wrote this record with the intention of giving each track its own individual feel,” says DiMarco. “No two songs came together the same way. The band will bring an idea to the table and songs would complete themselves by experimenting with electronics, guitar layers, and vocal patterns.” As far as the lyrical aspect of the album, most of the foundation was laid by Imperato and then each band member contributed from their life experiences, personal struggles, relationships and the pursuit of personal goals and dreams
Nevada Rose has quickly gained a following after debuting at the 2013 CMJ Music Festival with He Is Legend. After being a band for less than a year they signed a deal with Tragic Hero Records (A Skylit Drive, ERRA) who will release the full-length Paint Me In Light in 2014. “We are very excited and proud to become part of the Tragic Hero family,” says DiMarco. “We put our hearts and souls into making this album and can’t wait to release our music through this great label. When we heard that Tragic Hero was interested in signing us, we were absolutely thrilled.” This was quite an achievement for such a young band and it shows that if you work hard and write really great songs, then the rest will follow.
