American folk, indie, rock and dance band the Rosebuds was formed in 2001 in Raleigh, North Carolina. The band was founded by Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp. They met each other in Wilmington while studying in a college and later moved to Raleigh. There, they were joined by drummer Billy Alphin, who left the band quite soon. The band’s line-up wasn’t stable except for the core and the main creative force, i.e. Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp. Today, they are the only members of the band. The band recorded their demo that was discovered by Merge Records. The label released their debut album The Rosebuds Make Out in 2003. The second album Birds Make Good Neighbors came out in 2005 and was followed by Night of the Furies(2007). 2008 saw their album Life Like.
