The Savage Rose is a Danish psychedelic rock group, founded in 1967 by Thomas Koppel, Anders Koppel, Alex Riel, Jens Rugsted, Flemming Ostermann, and singer Annisette Koppel. Ilse Marie Koppel was also participating. Nils Tuxen replaced Flemming Ostermann from their second album.

Since the mid-1970s, the group was an acoustic trio consisting of Thomas Koppel, Annisette Koppel (then Hansen) and John Ravn as a core. From the beginning of the 1990s, the group returned to electric instrumentation. Thomas Koppel died on February 25, 2006.

After the release of Love and Freedom in 2012, Savage Rose have been on tour, but in Christmas 2013 they were back in the studio recording new songs and re-recording old songs. This time they will be releasing two studio albums, just as they did in 1968 and 1972. The first album titled Roots of the Wasteland is set to be released in April 2014 and the second as of yet untitled will follow later this year. After 47 years and 21 studio albums, they are still going strong. The first single "Mr. World" was released April 12, 2014 and the new album is set for release May 19.
