News & Updates

The Double Door in Chicago’s trendy Wicker Park neighborhood was one of our favorite places to play.  The venue was so big it actually had an entrance on Milwaukee Avenue and another on Damen.  This famous club has hosted The Smashing Pumpkins, Fu Manchu and even The Rolling Stones in its 23-year history.  Our headlining show back in 2004 was professionally recorded and we are making this time capsule available to you as a digital download.  This exclusive EP is only available on The Rosedales.com featuring the songs:

Cool Black Moon

In The Dark


Frozen Ghost

The Only Way

Switchblade Saturday Night

“The Business of Horror”

Cover charge back on March 18th, 2004 was only $5 and so is the price for this 7-song EP.  There has been no editing or remastering of the songs.  What you hear is exactly what we played - mistakes and all.  This live album should hold you over until future gigs are planned.

Sadly, the Double Door was forced to close this year but will hopefully reopen at a new location soon.  We wish club owners, Sean Mulroney and Joe Shanahan, the best of luck in their efforts to keep original live music going in the city of Chicago.
