Singer Brandon Kinder describes Wellwisher not as a concept album but a concept experience. The musical collaboration and nomadic recording process, combined with the lyrical themes of unity, brotherhood and relationships, all contributed to and exuded from the final product.
The Rocketboys are still “creating rich anthems that are as infectious as they are sincere” (Paste Magazine) with “clear, ringing guitars and full-bodied keyboard arrangements, hard-driving drum lines and well-practiced transitions between calm and controlled chaos” (Austin American-Statesman).
The band has already begun writing its second full-length, which will expand upon what Wellwisher offers. The currently unnamed release will be out by summer 2011 and feature a bucket of brand new songs from the six-piece group.
The band had tracks featured on a plethora of TV shows including 2010 Winter Olympic Games, The Real World, The Buried Life and Keeping Up with the Kardashians, among others.
