On their previous recordings, “20,000 Ghosts” and “Wellwisher,” The Rocketboys perfectly married themes of unity and brotherhood with rich, soaring rock, lifting the band to national critical acclaim. Their forthcoming album Build Away was recorded in their home studio and mixed by CJ Eiriksson (U2, Live, Phish), the album chronicles the emotions that surface through the brokenness in abandonment to the search for peace and closure, both personally and musically. They joined us for our 5GB series before their show tonight at Stickyz Rock’n’Roll Chicken Shack.
What’s the first gig you ever attended?
The first concert I ever attended was a free Carman (late 80s, early 90s Christian artist) show at the Georgia Dome.
What is the best gig that you ever played/performed?
We played at ACL Fest in Austin TX back in 2007 and also opened up a New Year’s Eve show in Austin at the Paramount Theater.
What is the best gig you have ever seen?
What is the gig you would most like to play?
I’d love to do a tour with Sunny Day Real Estate.
What would be the lineup for your dream gig?
We would open, Sunny Day Real Estate would be main support, and Radiohead would headline. Heck, while we’re wishing for things, Jeff Buckley would come back from the grave and play the encore.
