Listen to Viva Voce
The Rocketboys is a melodic rock band from Austin, TX with a sound as expansive as the Texas sky.
Hit TV shows “One Tree Hill,” “Private Practice,” “Elementary,” "Royals," and many others have often channeled the band’s thematic energy. Most recently, the 2015 season premiere of GLEE featured The Rocketboys' single "Viva Voce" which helped propel the song as high as #3 on Billboard's heatseekers chart in the US and to #1 in several countries.
Critics often highlight the band’s parity to textural acts such as Band of Horses and Death Cab for Cutie while retaining the mass appeal of Coldplay, The Verve and Keane. The Rocketboys' live show spans a dynamic range from guitar- and keyboard-rich anthems to gentle, ethereal whispers. In 2015, The Rocketboys had a stint moonlighting as Thrice-frontman Dustin Kensrue's backing band.
As a follow up to the "Left | Right" EP (Black Magnetic Records, produced by Joe Chicarelli), The Rocketboys expect to release its 3rd full-length album in 2016.
