The Iron Roses share new single and video ‘Old Guard’

The Iron Roses are sharing their brand-new song and music video ‘Old Guard.’ The song is the second single off of their upcoming self-titled album, scheduled for release on October 20th through Iodine Recordings, and follows the previously released track ‘Screaming For A Change.’

“We were really excited to have an opportunity to create a video for ‘Old Guard.’ The song itself speaks to the power younger generations have to overthrow the systems and ideals that no longer serve the community as a whole,” they shared about the song.

About the video, Nathan Gray states: “When we thought about how to translate that visually, we knew we wanted to invite folks from many walks of life to join us in this really intense, seemingly chaotic celebration that was more of a shared uprising than ‘just’ a video shoot. As someone who has spent a lifetime finding themself, I loved that we had queer, trans, and nonbinary folks along with allies, BIPOC folks, and people both old and young in that space. Blurring the lines between band and crowd really made it feel like we were all in this intense transformation together where it was safe to be fervent and joyful. Everyone in that room represented each of us as The Iron Roses, and vice versa. It was a truly special evening.”

Vocalist Becky Fontaine adds: “This song always makes me think of my own children, who have said no to gender and social norms for themselves. I am continually in awe of their generation and truly believe that if we can keep them alive long enough, they will save us from the social and political climate we are currently in. It was great to create a video that proved the uprising can be inspired by anger and frustration, but carried out in joy. The energy that was in the room with us when we filmed this will stay with me in hope, forever.”
