The New Surge


"Our music is pretty much all over the place while staying true to our post hardcore roots. We are very diverse with our writing and don’t want to confine ourselves to one particular sound."


WHO: Rozu

MEMBERS: Tim Graham (Vocals); DJ Sundine (Guitars); Henry Navarre (Bass); Brian Robertson (drums)

WHERE: Denver Colorado

ABOUT: ROZU (Japanese for Rose) is a post-hardcore 4-piece from Denver, Colorado consisting of longtime artists Tim Graham on vocals, David Sundine on guitar, Brian Robertson on drums, and Henry Navarre on bass. With a hard-hitting debut EP on the horizon, ROZU aims to take both local and national music scenes by storm. With full intention to tour constantly and consistently in support of their debut effort expected to release the latter half of 2018, ROZU is the next band to keep your eyes on, as their penchant for all things driving, melodic, and heavy make them a standout you won’t want to miss!


What would you say that your band has to offer that is different from what is out there?   

We just bring a lot to the table which sets us apart from what is out there. We are in this mindset right now of content is king so before we even released our first song we had basically an EP and LP’s worth of music, so we constantly continue to release content to give something new every few months.

What would you say is the essence behind your band?

The essence behind Rozu is to just write music and travel as much as we can. Our band is made up of members that have been on the grind for so long and we were all kind of the dominating members of our previous bands, our drive to do something different and tour as much as possible (when ready) is really all we are about.

How do you compete in today’s market?

With such a digital age we will compete well considering our plan with releasing material. Our mindset of releasing great content constantly will help us compete in a market where content is king and attention spans are short. We don’t want to release an album and go off of those songs for a year or two but release something every few months to stay relevant and continue to grow a fan base.

Describe your music. What do you want it to convey?

Our music is pretty much all over the place while staying true to our post hardcore roots. We are very diverse with our writing and don’t want to confine ourselves to one particular sound. Some songs are super heavy and some are very soft and melodic so we will always be keeping our fans and ourselves on our toes. Lyrically our music is about finding the light in shit situations being almost a therapeutic outlet while trying to grasp the bigger picture and help people realize shit does get better.

Define some of the goals for the band.

Our goal is to just not slow down at all and keep grinding this music and dream out. We want to travel and play as much as it makes sense.

Anything else you would like to add?

Thank you guys for having us and thank you to the fans tuning in.
