Modern roots-rock band Rose’s Pawn Shop releases their latest single “Gratitude” as they gear up to release their album Punch-Drunk Life on November 4 via KZZ Music. Rife with harmonies, “Gratitude” offers a personal insight into loss while also embracing a life well-lived. Frontman Paul Givant notes, “Ultimately the song is about gratitude for the loved ones we’ve lost along the way and all the ways we help each other and show each other love throughout this crazy, beautiful, short, long, life.” Listen to “Gratitude” via DSPS HERE.

With Punch-Drunk Life, Rose’s Pawn Shop returns after a long absence from the recording studio. The group has evolved since 2014’s Gravity Well, which earned raves from Rolling Stone, GQ and others. Enduring lineup changes and the pandemic while also embracing marriage and family has built strength and spirit. It has also brought an expansion of their artistry and their audience, built show by show from the venues of Southern California to the fishing villages of Alaska to the mountain towns of the American Southwest.
Rose’s Pawn Shop features frontman/songwriter Paul Givant, guitarist/producer Zachary Ross, upright bassist Stephen Andrews, drummer Matt Lesser, and multi-instrumentalists Tim Weed and John Kraus. With their fusion of bluegrass instrumentation and folk-rock amplification, the band have carved out an Americana sound that’s as diverse as their native Los Angeles. Punch-Drunk Life highlights their resilient journey, delivering songs with universal messages of courage and conviction. And like “Old Time Pugilist” says, “I can’t count every blow that knocked me down And the referee’s looking to see if I’m surrendering. But I’m climbing up the ropes I’m still contending in this ring.”
