Southern rock band Them Dirty Roses, made up of brothers James and Frank Ford and childhood best friends Ben Crain and Andrew Davis are announcing the release of their new single “Birmingham Steel”, coming out on May 15th, 2024.

“Birmingham Steel” was co-written by all four band members and collaborators Phillip White and James LeBlanc, and was recorded at the iconic FAME studios. Inspired by the band’s home state of Alabama, the song highlights Alabama’s steel industry as a metaphor for a solid, sturdy relationship.

Them Dirty Roses teased their new single across social platforms earlier this morning, view the post (HERE).

Bred in ‘Bama clay, Them Dirty Roses grew up together and eventually dedicated an era to building a brotherhood as “warrior musicians out to capture Southern rock glory and immortality, or die trying” (Saving Country Music). Making the move to Nashville, they packed their RV with vintage gear and spent time living together under the same roof, while building a loyal legion of fans, and relentlessly touring across the country.

The result was a chemistry akin to some of the most well-known, legendary Southern rock bands and a story built independently on grit and sweat - garnering over 800,000 Spotify listeners, more than 353K followers across social media platforms, and shoulder-to-shoulder crowds at their live shows.

Their powerful wall of sound, characterized by fiery riffs, soaring guitar solos, harmonized backing vocals and songs led by the Lead Vocalist James Ford, offer crowds a sense of authenticity and sincerity -  a mix of sharp songwriting and down-home swagger, of melody and muscle, of grooves and Gibson guitars — nods to the legends of the south who came before them.

"Everybody came into this band with their own favorite kind of music," says Andrew Davis, Lead Guitarist. "When you smash it all together, this sound is what you get. Without those years living on top of each other in Nashville, we might not have tapped into this feeling where we get onstage and can all feel what's coming next. It's intuitive."

Eventually returning to their home state of Alabama, that intuition gave rise to new music including their current single “Birmingham Steel” and previously-released “Candle In The Dark,” both off a forthcoming EP (to be announced). Their forthcoming EP will follow their previously-released, self-titled album Them Dirty Roses and Lost In The Valley of Hate & Love Vol 1.

With more shows on the horizon, their “unmistakable southern down home rock and roll sound” (Gadsden Messenger) has catapulted them to some of the most coveted stages at major festivals including ShipRocked, LJT Fest, and Gulf Coast Jam.
