As many of you know, we recently finished recording and mixing our new EP. Along with that news comes some other exciting news, so bear with us for a few minutes as we explain what is going on with The Rocketboys. LESS THAN 2 WEEKS LEFT TO HELP US WITH OUR EP AND FULL-LENGTH PROJECTS!

1. The new EP is called “Wellwisher”. It will be released online Tuesday, November 2, on the normal MP3 sites, as well as at our online merch store (for you old-fashioned folks who still like to buy hard copy CDs).

2. You can get your digital copy EARLY (as early as mid-October) if you click here and donate to help us pay off this EP (duplication, mastering, mixing, etc.) and our upcoming full-length. We want your help, so we have set in motion amazing incentives for people who donate, so please take a look at our Kickstarter page and see what you can get for donating.

3. We will be releasing a limited edition vinyl of “Wellwisher”. Very few people will be able to get this vinyl, but we are offering the limited edition vinyl for people who donate $100 or more (along with about a dozen other sweet gifts) for the EP. If that sounds interesting to you, swing over to our Kickstarter page to see the other great things you could get.

4. We are super stoked about these new songs, and we cannot wait to share them with you. So, please, mark down on your calendars NOVEMBER 2 for the release of “Wellwisher”. We will be going on a national tour in November to promote the new album, so please visit www.therocketboys.com to see our tour dates!

Lastly, please follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc. We are grateful for your support, and please write back if you have any questions!
