About this Artist

Posted By The Rocketboys

Mainstays of the Austin, Texas music scene for nearly a decade, anthemic indie rock band The Rocketboys released their third full-length album Certain Circles – “a feast of lush, layered sound and soaring harmonies” (KUTX 98.9FM) in 2016.

Their dynamic, expansive songs often outsize the clubs in which they’re performed and have garnered The New York Times’ apt description, “… sounds like an amped up Death Cab for Cutie with Coldplay-style melodies.”

Throughout The Rocketboys’ career many films, commercials, and TV shows (most notably Glee, Private Practice, and One Tree Hill) have harnessed The Rocketboys’ thematic energy and offered exposure to new audiences. Tours opening for bands such as Twenty-One Pilots, The Mowgli’s, and Relient K have also significantly elevated the band’s profile.

Recent years have brought many career-defining moments including working with Grammy-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli, cracking the worldwide iTunes charts with single “Viva Voce,” and tours both opening for and backing Thrice-frontman Dustin Kensrue.

Their music has always provided a snapshot of the conflicts and hopes of its members – finding one’s voice, brotherhood, faith, death, and the relationship between artist and audience. Certain Circles offers a lens into the ongoing process of finding one’s identity as an artist. The musical accompaniment is “lush, layered soundscapes” (AbsolutePunk) and “gray-hued swells of chorused guitar and minor-key piano processionals” (A.V. Club).<br>
