rapture is coming




Hollywood likes to make us think that success stories happen overnight. Most of the time, however, the journey takes a lifetime that can be measured in a few pivotal minutes. The story of Roses Unread is definitely closer to the latter of these two.

Originally conceptualized by Allison Teague in 2007, the idea of a project that wrote timeless melodies and big, memorable songs with the passion and energy of a rock band took years to nurture and mold.

Drawing from friendships made from the Memphis and Tupelo music scenes, we refuse to be stopped and demand to be heard. Their idea of success is not measured by typical vanity, but by the lives they influence. Spreading a message of hope amongst a tapestry of huge drums, crushing low end, and searing guitar riffs has become a catalyst for our message that grabs your attention and keeps you intrigued for the journey.
