The Rocketboys’ sound reflects the Texas landscape from which they hail: vast, yet sparse, desolate, yet rich and abundant. Familiar lyrical themes of romance and love are often eschewed in favor of songs of brotherhood, family, life, and death in the band’s dynamic musical array, from guitar- and keyboard-rich anthems to gentle, ethereal whispers.
Hit TV shows “Glee,” “One Tree Hill,” “Private Practice,” “Elementary,” and many others have channeled the band’s thematic energy. Reviews often highlight the band’s parity to textural acts such as Band of Horses and Death Cab for Cutie while retaining the mass appeal of Coldplay, The Verve and Keane.
No strangers to the road (the band will perform its 700th show this year), The Rocketboys continually criss-cross the country including a stint opening for and backing Thrice-frontman Dustin Kensrue.
The Rocketboys released its latest recording project and debut on Black Magnetic Records, the “Left | Right” EP, on January 6th, 2015. It was recorded in Los Angeles, CA at Sunset Sound Studios with multi-grammy winning producer, Joe Chicarelli (Manchester Orchestra, The Strokes, The Shins).
