Gypsy Rose Sign With FnA Records To Release Long Lost Material
April 4, 2012
FnA Records is ecstatic to announce the signing of Gypsy Rose.
We are not referring to the Gypsy Rose that featured an early Jerry Cantrell and Mike Starr from Alice In Chains, and we are not referring to the Swedish band that ex-Accept vocalist David Reece recently joined — we are referring to the one and only Gypsy Rose that was signed to a major label contract via KISS’ Gene Simmons.
In 1988, KISS bassist Gene Simmons approached Canadian rockers by the name of Gypsy Rose and made them one of his early signings to his imprint label, Simmons Records/RCA — home of House Of Lords, Giuffria, and Silent Rage. Gypsy Rose would release ‘Prey’ in 1990 along with two singles, “Poisoned By Love” and “Don’t Turn Your Back On Me Now”, which quickly became fan favorites.
Nearly a quarter of a century later, Gypsy Rose lead singer Michael Ross has resurfaced, not only with a solid solo career that once again shows off his high caliber songwriting, but with old demos and never-before-released Gypsy Rose material in hand. For those fans who have always been bummed out that there was one, and only one, Gypsy Rose album, the wait is now over. FnA Records has attained the rights to these early recordings which will most likely see a mid to late spring release through www.fnarecords.net.
In addition, FnA Records sent Michael Ross into the studio to record exclusive 2012 acoustic versions of “Poisoned By Love” and “Don’t Turn Your Back On Me Now”. Keep your eyes and ears open as Gypsy Rose is looking to reform.
