The rabble-rousing Rocketsmiths are at it again, with the release of new single ‘Underground’ – the Brisbane quintet’s rock ode to riding a slippery slope into depravity. Whether an autobiographical tale or not, the track is the first sign of the good times to come from their Magoo produced debut album titled The Bones, to be released nationally mid-year.
The antipated debut album moves firmly in the direction of indie-rock and punk party jams, following the country/rockabilly tinged explorations of the EPs Parts, Pieces and Meet Horace And Clyde. Gaining triple j rotation of the harpsichord-drenched lark ‘The Boy Who Cried Misery’ and having the track placed in the soon to be screened episode ten of Underbelly: The Golden Mile, Rocketsmiths are gathering a growing audience of followers who like their rock a tad off-kilter, their punk a little clever and their stage antics a lot crazy.
Supporting Spoon on the Brisbane leg of their national tour, Rocketsmiths are shaping up for an eventful year, with plans to tour their joyful brand of chaos all around the country to show off the new material in the very near future.
