Taking on the world one crowd at a time to make rock music important againâ¦This is Rockett Queen.
Storming out of East Texas, Rockett Queen burst onto the scene in 2003 and has since been a force with which to be reckoned. Fronted by charismatic, explosive lead vocalist/guitarist Walter Lee, and driven by the untamed Jay Scars on lead guitar and Chaz Graves on bass. As well as the compelling SeVen on drums, they have cultivated immense recognition and rave reviews of their full length debut âToo Rock For Radio.â
Not every band can boast the title âBest unsigned band in Americaââ¦ Rockett Queen can. Rockett Queen quickly earned the title âBest Unsigned Band in Americaâ by winning the contest that ultimately resulted in their hit single âThe Next Big Thingâ to be featured in the full length film âJohn Tucker Must Die.â This earned them a spot on the soundtrack along with The All American Rejects, Cartel, Ok Go and many more. With that notoriety, it wasnât long before MTV beckoned and featured âThe Next Big Thingâ in their hit TV show âNewport Harborâ. Following the success of âThe Next Big Thing,â Rockett Queen quickly raced back into the studio to record their sophomore EP âKiss and Tell,â which has already been declared âthe best thing Rockett Queen has released to date.â The track âSince You Been Goneâ gained notoriety and received heavy airplay on Top 40 radio station The Breeze, where it continues to thrive.
While cultivating a devoted following in the U.S., Rockett Queen also released âToo Rock For Radioâ in Japan on Little Rock Records. âInrock,â one of Japanâs largest music magazines, featured a 2-page spread on Rockett Queen alongside Avril Lavigne, Paramore, Fall Out Boy, HIM, and the Foo Fighters.
Since the release of âToo Rock For Radio,â Rockett Queen has persevered playing a multitude of shows for over 25,000 fervent fans with artists including Hinder, The All American Rejects, Yellowcard, New Found Glory, Story Of The Year, Bowling For Soup, Coheed and Cambria, Thrice, Bad Religion, The Sounds, Senses Fail, My Chemical Romance, and Thursday, in addition to multiple stops on the Vans Warped Tour.
Poised to ascend to new heights, Rockett Queen has recorded and is unleashing their new EP âGoodnight Californiaâ featuring the hard-driving anthem and their first single âI Hate Youâ July 1, 2011. Rockett Queen is devoting the summer of 2011 to racking up miles on the blacktop as they continue to tour and be up close and personal with each of their Rockett Queen Legion fans.
