Roxen (Urdu: روظن, literal English translation: "hope") is a Pakistani rock band from Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan.

The band had a debut studio album Rozen-e-Deewar, released in 2006. Following this, the band had singles Toh Phir Ao and Tera Mera Rishta which featured as soundtracks for the Bollywood movie Awarapan in 2007.

Music[edit]

Roxen was formed back in September 2002 with initial line up of Mustafa Zahid a.k.a. musti, Jawad a.k.a. Jodi and Omar & came out with their debut song Yaadein which labeled them as "another Jal-wannabe band".

After a couple of months they came out with web release of another song called Tau Phir Aoo with its demo version. The song registered over 65000 downloads in one month.[1]

With tints of pop and dark shades of rock too, Roxen hit the market with their debut album on August 31, 2006, titled Rozen-E-Deewar, released under Fire Records in Pakistan, Hom Records in India & Sangeet Records in USA, Canada, the Middle east & the rest of the world.

Roxen's second album 'Bhoola Samundar' is expected to be released on (Eid-ul-Fitr) August 2014. Finally, Universal Music has signed Mustafa Zahid and Roxen (band) for a worldwide release of their Upcoming Album.[2]
