FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (October 23, 2020) – On October 23, 2020 the original members of the NYC cult band Desmond Child & Rouge will release their two remastered albums, DESMOND CHILD & ROUGE and RUNNERS IN THE NIGHT on DESTON/BMG.
Additionally, the band has reunited to release a newly recorded version of their Top 40 hit, now re-christened “OUR LOVE IS INSANE XX.” Desmond Child & Rouge proved ahead of their time with their eclectic fusion of rock, pop, girl group, dance, Latin and punk, and made their name at the legendary CBGB, the popular West Village nightclub Reno Sweeney, the Lower Manhattan Ocean Club and the uptown underground rock club TRAX.
Formed by Desmond Child, Maria Vidal, Myriam Valle and Diana Grasselli, Desmond Child & Rouge originally signed to Capitol Records and recorded two stylistically different albums that were both released the same year. The self-titled DESMOND CHILD & ROUGE features the Billboard Top 40 hit “Our Love Is Insane” which launched a national tour playing every major city. Their second album, RUNNERS IN THE NIGHT, followed just six months later and culminated in a musical guest appearance on Saturday Night Live.
Desmond Child & Rouge garnered a cult following that included George Harrison, Paul Stanley, John Belushi, Bill Murray, among many others. One of their biggest fans, Gilda Radner, invited the three women of “Rouge,” Maria Vidal, Myriam Valle and Diana Grasselli, to be in her debut Broadway show, Gilda Live From New York produced and directed by Lorne Michaels, where they are also highlighted in film director Mike Nichols’ acclaimed documentary of the show, Gilda Live.
Look for new Desmond Child & Rouge singles to be released in 2021.
