ROSE FUNERAL to join Full Blown Chaos, Battlecross and Diamond Plate for November-December tour!
Rose Funeral released Gates of Punishment on September 27th and has thus far been heralded as the band's best effort to date. Fans that have seen Rose Funeral live in the past know that the band puts on an intense show. This tour will be no different with guitarist Ryan Gardner now handling vocal duties. Rose Funeral will be joining the tour on November 15th in Spartanburg, SC.

Recently, Rose Funeral shot a video for Beyond the Entombed. The video is dark, blasphemous and will be premiering worldwide soon.

Gates of Punishment is a fitting progression of the band's dark and foreboding sound. Guest vocal appearances from local Cincinnati opera singer, Kate Alexander, and Steve Tucker of Morbid Angel add to the dark atmosphere that is created throughout the album. Seven string guitars tuned to drop A, haunting melodies, insane blasts and enough groove to keep heads banging will make this one of the heaviest releases of 2011.
