Tucked away in the northwest corner of the American Midwest lies an industrial graveyard all but forgotten. Where tangled and smoldering steel mill spires fill the air with a thick chemical affectation, a small group of highly trained musical mercenaries form an unprecedented alliance. Together they embark on a tireless quest. To fight the monotony, oppression, and propaganda plaguing the most universal forms of communication they explore the vast multiverse of artistic and auditory possibilities yet to be discovered. The legend of these sonorous soldiers of fortune, once disparate and unsung, is now known as Rocketboat.
Rocketboat is not merely a band, but a post-apocalyptic ideal. A new form of artist emerging in a desolate 21st century, bound only by the depth of his or her own imagination. The previous three years have been dedicated to sowing the seeds of followership in Chicago by playing nationally known rooms such as The Metro, The Double Door, Schubas, and even appearing live on WGN TV.
While it’s members have been working to release their second musical album, they will have been simultaneously collecting an inventory of singles to be released episodically in 2017 and developing Rocketboat – The Game, a 2.5D retro-modern platforming adventure. Faint whispers of graphic novels, musicals, and motion pictures rise among the ranks as an ever expanding Rocketboat universe takes shape.
Rocketboat is now ready for the next exciting chapter in their saga. What future awaits this group of star crossed adventurers? Only time will tell and only you can help.
