"Rockets and Cars"

“This New York fearsome foursome’s guitars rocket out of your speakers like this is Road to Ruin Ramones...These ten songs hit hard, pull no punches, but end up as some mighty, banging, rock and roll...One song after another just cranks. Shake the walls with this.” - The Big Takeover


"Rockets and Cars"

Songs that are quite addictive, from the driving rock of “What Happened To Our Moon Colony” to the explosive and expansive punk of “Head In A Cloud” to the jangly “Was That You Laughing”...Recommended.” - Cosmik Debris


"Rockets and Cars"

“Rockets and Cars have a knack of coming up with tunes that are left spinning around your head after you've finished listening to them...Whether they are ingested with a little punk, a little calmness or just plain reliable rock each track is able to stand alone in it's own right without being masked by other...Keep your eyes and ears open for these guys." - Black Velvet Magazine


"Rockets and Cars"

Rockets and Cars remind of the day that Green Day became a national selling act. Punk broke and indie/punk kids became the center of major label's attention...They'll be jumping around to The Protest with its catchy repetitive chorus.” - Crashin' In


"Rockets and Cars"

"In an age when punk rock is gradually making the shift to Top 40 radio, these four guys refuse to make any changes to get there. They openly respect exactly where the punk music genre started by quoting influences from bands such as The Clash and The Adverts".... "The Protest" has one of the most addictive choruses on album and you’ll catch yourself singing along by the second time it's played." - HNN


"Rockets and Cars"

With an agenda only to rock your face off without the use of gimmicks or schtick, Rockets and Cars throw down serious attitude throughout Philadelphia, New York and any other stage that will have them." - Origivation Magazine


"Rockets and Cars"

”Sure, Rockets and Cars could easily become radio's next cash cow, but don't throw out the possibility that they might bring some desperately-needed quality up through the ranks.”

- Splendid


"Rockets and Cars"

”Emotional pumping punk rock energy.” - Matchbox Recording


"Rockets and Cars"

"Armed with addictively catchy tunes all delivered with a driving energy but retaining their pop hooks ROCKETS AND CARS are rapidly
becoming one of our favorite New York bands." - Tiswas

Bio

Vocalist TJ Rosental writes the lyrics and music for Rockets and Cars. Inspired by the punk rock phenomenom in London and NYC in the 70's, Rosenthals' melodies remind us of bands like The Clash and The Ramones. His lyrics are influenced by his observations as a Lower East Side local. Rosenthal played minor league baseball after college, but had to retire his bat after spraining his ankle during a night of heavy drinking. Today, he is back on his feet, rocking New York City venues with the rest of Rockets and Cars.
