The Comancheros' Heavy Western "Yellow Roses" Blooms with a Vengeance

August 19th, 2022 (Nashville, TN): Heavy western pioneers and Nashville favorites The Comancheros come in swinging with their latest release "Yellow Roses," available now on all streaming services.Fans of all genres can appreciate an upbeat tune for the brokenhearted, and the Midwestern band fully delivers.

"Yellow Roses" is the first single from The Comancheros' upcoming album Memphis to Mexico, set for release this fall. Following two previous albums and various singles released as recently as 2022's "Cowboy Song" and a cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Mississippi Kid."

The Midwestern band’s latest single chronicles the importance of the eponymous flower as a symbol of love long gone and cements their special sound as one to watch in the Nashville scene and beyond. Utilizing a mid-tempo blend of guitars and drums, the three-piece band serve up an old-school recipe dressed impeccably for 2022. Raspy vocals from lead singer Tanner Jones and harmonies by guitarist Jon "Deere" Green are paired with catchy guitar riffs to create a sound that takes us back to the rock golden age. Honest in lyrical delivery, lines like “I threw one in the creek for you, I buried the other underneath the moon” are simultaneously poetic and understated.

The depth of emotion in lead singer Tanner Jones’ voice makes each reference to yellow roses the more impactful as the song rolls along. By the break, audiences can expect a repeat of the now-familiar harmony and pitch-perfect lonesome lyrics. Altogether tight and remarkably fresh, “Yellow Roses” is a fantastic representation of the future of rock ‘n’ roll and its heavy western sub-genre from The Comancheros.

“ZZ Top goes Star Wars” sums up the special subgenre coined as “heavy western” by The Comancheros. The fitting reference was given by Richard Young of The Kentucky Headhunters, who produced the band’s upcoming LP “Memphis to Mexico” and took the seasoned performers to a new level.

Touring and performing nonstop since 2015, The Comacheros have stormed the stage with Randy Rogers, The Cadillac Three, Drake White, The Steel Woods, Alabama, Whiskey Myers, Blackberry Smoke, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. With endless energy and a distinct sound, the three-piece band’s catalog spans six years, two albums, and a 2022 cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s classic “Mississippi Kid.”

Living the rambling man lifestyle and following where the wind blows has sharpened their spurs and inspired the band to create a sound that exemplifies what it means to be a modern-day cowboy: heavy and western.
