Marilyn Rose and the Thorns are pleased to present their debut album “Antarctica”.

Marilyn Rose and the Thorns will launch “Antarctica” at the Lyrebird Lounge on Friday 4th December with support from Lilith Lane (solo).

Marilyn Rose and the Thorns emerged from the St Kilda live music community circa 2010. Vocalist Marilyn Rose Veil, guitarist Leon Storch (Smoke Machine), guitarist Rusty Teluk (Cold Harbour), bassist Col Holst (ColdHarbour/Scourge) and drummer Jim Richter (Death Sentence/12FU) first met at the Greyhound Hotel in St Kilda during the front bars glory days. Together they produce a rare and sensual explosion of vocals and an utterly unique blend of rock and roll styles.

Marilyn Rose and The Thorns performances are emotive, dramatic, sorrowful, full of darkness and cabaret with elements of pop and avant-garde. Marilyn’s persona is equal parts Shirley Bassey, David Bowie and Siouxsie Sioux.

Marilyn Rose & The Thorns recorded with Ash Wednesday (The Models, Einstürzende Eeubauten) in 2015 and this is the result – the bands first full length album is released on
IN THE VAULT RECORDS on C.D and 180 gram 12 inch vinyl and features a special guest appearance by HUNTERS & COLLECTORS trumpet maestro Jack Howard.

Marilyn Rose and The Thorns have played on stages large and small to enthusiastic crowds around Melbourne’s renowned live music scene at venues such as The Esplanade Hotel, The St Kilda Bowling Club, The Prince of Wales Hotel, The Greyhound Hotel, Yah Yah’s, The Lyrebird Lounge, The Town Hall Hotel, Cherry Bar, The Tote and The Great Britain Hotel as well as appearing on the local female band showcase gig known as “Goddess”, St.Kilda’s own premier local live music event “A Day By The Green” and also The Kim Salmon Living Legend’s Tribute @ The Tote.

Prepare yourself to be seduced by the hypnotic vocals of leading lady, Marilyn Rose and rocked by the dark and dazzling musicianship of her band of Thorns as well as an assemblage of musical nomads at Lyrebird Lounge, Friday 4 December. Doors: 7.30.Free entry!
