Austin-Based Rocketboys At Dada June 10th

by Steven Doyle

Check out Austin-based indie-rock band The Rocketboys and their upcoming show at Club Dada in Dallas on June 10. The band is gearing up to tour in support of their forthcoming album, Build Anyway that was released June 5, 2012.. They’re an incredible up-and-coming band who have built great momentum since the release of their debut album 20,000 Ghosts in 2009. Three years later and the band has returned with what could possibly be one of the most heartfelt, best Indie rock albums of the year.         

The Rocketboys—with no label and minimal outside help during the past five years—have paved their own way, achieving successful appearances at Austin City Limits (2007), SXSW (2010) and CMJ (2009), to name a few.

On Build Anyway, The Rocketboys found new inspiration after the near dissolution of their band with soaring, heartfelt rock anthems that chronicle everything from the emotions that surface through the brokenness in abandonment to the search for peace and closure, both personally and musically. The album seamlessly walks a dreamlike line of pain and comfort on ten passionate tracks like “Bloodless” and “Carry Me,” that further establish The Rocketboys as one of indie-rock’s most promising bands.
