Rocket

BandRockPunk

Rocket mixes 60's girl group innocence combined with 80's glam wham swagger--A volatile combination that leaves one wondering what the results would be if the Shangri-Las crashed the stage during an early Motley Crue gig.

Biography

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 traveled coast to coast, honing their craft during the 2006 Van's Warped Tour, and during the spring of 2007 as direct support for Butch Walker. Rocket has also opened for the likes of Rancid, Sugarcult, OK GO, Morningwood, The Sounds, The Supersuckers, Kill Hannah, and The Dwarves, and has toured with SuicideGirls and The Lashes.

In October of 2007, Rocket became one of the top 12 finalists on the Fox television series (and American Idol-spinoff) "The Next Great American Band." Chosen from over 7,000 bands of all musical genres, Rocket was not only the sole all-girl band in the competition, but also the only band with a female vocalist. They remained on the show for four weeks.
