A lot is going on for The Rocketboys and we wanted to fill you in. But first, we just want to say thank you for all of your support and listening to our music. We are more excited than ever about things on the horizon for The Rocketboys, and we wanted to keep you in the loop. Here it goes…

1. We finished recording our new EP!! We will release it at the end of October. Five BRAND NEW songs that you’ve never heard. We’ll let you know very soon what it’s called and the exact release date. As many of you know, we recorded the drums here in Austin at Wire Recording the fabric of the record on the road–guitars, keys, vibraphone, french horn, violin, trombone, harp–with a little help from our friends. We can’t wait for you to hear it!

2. We want your help! Our Kickstarter campaign has about three weeks left! We’re calling all of our friends and fans to action, to be our record label of sorts (since we have chosen to do it ourselves up to this point). Your donations to our creative endeavors will be returned in the next few months in the form of some sweet incentives, such as pre-released copy of the EP, limited edition vinyls, T-shirts, posters, and some higher-end rewards like a Rocketboys concert at your house for you and your friends. We want to give you something special for your help. Please click here to find out more about how you can help us out.

3. We’ve just put up our final batch of tour dates for the year. Visit our Myspace page to see if we’re coming to a town near you. If we are, we’d love to see you!
