The Rocketboys
The Rocketboys
For The Rocketboys, 2012 was a resilient journey. After nearly calling it quits when half the band parted ways in early 2011, the remaining three members - Brandon Kinder (singer/guitarist), Justin Wiseman (keys) and Josh Campbell (bass) - resuscitated the acclaimed melodic rock band with a lush, cathartic album: "Build Anyway."

Since "Build Anyway," The Rocketboys have not skipped a beat with a year of US touring in 2012, a brand new Total Recall-inspired music video (, a month long tour this July in support of Relient K and The Almost, and a rapidly expanding collection of new material for the band's third LP. With the addition of a new drummer and guitar player (respectively Josh Rodgers and Kyle Samuel) the band once again delivers a powerful, anthemic performance.

Still inspired by the Mother Teresa quote that gave life to the band after nearly calling it quits, "What you spend years building someone could destroy overnight: build anyway," The Rocketboys continue to build.
Synth/Electronica Pop newcomers MEDLOW burst onto the scene with their debut self-titled offering and with it hope to challenge what it means to be a hardworking, independent band in a mainstream world. And they’re doing it all on their own… with a little help from their friends.

“This album is an evolution of what we were capable of. It felt like going back to school. In the beginning, we had no idea what we were doing,” explains Gabriel White, the contemplative frontman for Washington DC’s newest rockers. “These songs were born in moments where I was experiencing everything I was writing about. But, as my songwriting progressed, I started creating these stories around the world that I was in. I wanted to write about things other than where I was at the time. When you write so much about your own life, sometimes a despair can set in, and it can take you to places you fear.”

With inspirations like New Wave greats Depeche Mode and more recent contemporaries CHVRCHES and M83, MEDLOW are positioning themselves in an exciting genre with an impressive entry. From start to finish, the record is swarming with relevant compositions like Don’t Let Go, a song “about being naive, unable to see the end of a relationship is here. It’s a chant. Not letting go is the only thing keeping you chained down. It’s me ignoring reality,” White says.

MEDLOW want to create a legacy. The frontman continues, “The work has just begun. This is our chance to discover the other sides of ourselves as artists. We can’t wait to get on the road, meet new people, see what we’re really capable of.”

Hear what the beginning sounds like. Check out their self-titled album MEDLOW now available on iTunes and digital stores everywhere.
