Rocket Club is a “songwriters Band in progress”, so says the mini-manifesto written inside the band’s self-titled 2008 debut. The group readies for the release of its first new studio album in 8 years. Talk to anyone in the band and you’ll hear the same message: it’s all about the songs.
Launched in 2008 and hailing from Minneapolis, Rocket Club achieved something over their first six years together that no other Minnesota band has before or since. Three songs were on the Billboard country charts as an unsigned, independent act. That success brought a large and loyal Midwest following, along with the opportunity to share the stage with many of Nashville’s biggest stars.
Fast forward to today and Rocket Club, with frontman Chris Hawkey, is readying itself for atmospheric re-entry with a new record and a new tour. While the genre-bending band has always been hard to define, one thing about them is very clear: whatever happens, the songs will lead the way.
