Biography

When you think of Rocket, think of driving along an L.A. beach in an open-top, bright pink Cadillac. Rocket is a revolutionary concoction of fun, parties, bubblegum and beating hearts. Coquettishness-meets-bombast, kittens-meet-rattlesnakes; Rocket is the launching pad for a new generation of pop music.

The all-girl band mixes 60's girl group innocence with 70's decibel-damaging boulevard beat, combined with 80's glam wham swagger--A volatile combination that leaves one wondering what the results would be if the Shangri-Las crash landed onstage during an early Motley Crue gig.

Starting out as a threesome of Laurens, Rocket released their first album, "Too Hot to be Bothered," in 2005. Evolving into a five-piece rock 'n' roll circus later that year, their first-ever live show was a headlining, sold-out smash at the legendary Viper Room. The E.P., "Girls With Candy Hearts" followed in early 2006.

Since then, the girls have honed their craft coast to coast during the 2006 Van's Warped Tour, as well as opening for Rancid, OK Go, The Sounds, Morningwood, Kill Hannah, The Ark, SuicideGirls and The Lashes.
