Press


Memorable Song/Moment: They really got the crowd involved in their songs. At one point they had them all screaming “OH!” right back at ‘em.

Sex Appeal/Image: They have that pop rock vibe. They sort of reminded me of a scruffier version of One Direction. (Not saying they sound like One Direction, just the overall look of them.)

Comments: For their first show outside of Newfoundland, I think they did a great job. All of them had good stage presence, and the crowd really enjoyed them. - The Scene Magazine


Their live performance was also energetic with explosive guitar playing and a lot of jumping. RocketRocketShip is a welcome addition to the Newfoundland and East Coast music scene. I look forward to more from them in the future. - The Halifax Musicphile


"From The Last Chapter to the final woah-ohs in This Time, this album barely slows down. Bottom line: Your Best Kept Secret is great. It feels like RocketRocketShip are on the edge of something really, really cool with this record, something you don’t want to miss out on."

"With Your Best Kept Secret, RocketRocketShip have pushed their game to the next level. The album kicks off with the Kubrick-inspired synth at the beginning of The Last Chapter, but then blows quickly blows through a string of catchy lyrics, busting right into the you’re never gonna break me down anthem Follow The Leader."

"browsing through the local music listening post and I see a 7 song EP by band called RocketRocketShip. I put on the headphones and was instantly transported back to my days snowboarding at Marble Mountain, listening to Pennywise, NOFX and the like" - RocketRocketShip by Damian Lethbridge


"RocketRocketShip stole the show for me. I’m listening through their self-titled EP now and it’s an awesome blend of pop-punk and eighties/indie-rock synthesizer"

"Bottom line: this is 26 minutes of music that makes me want to dance, sing and chant a-long and I love it."
- RocketRocketShip bring it home to CB by Tom Cochrane


"Their sound is awesome, and I love their lyrics. They have lots of high energy and their stage presence blows me away" -Ryan Hunt- via The Troubadour - RocketRocketShip blast off into stardom by Jonathan Myers
