aking on the world one crowd at a time to make rock music important again…This is Rockett Queen.
Storming out of East Texas, Rockett Queen burst onto the scene in 2003 and has since been a force with which to be reckoned. Fronted by charismatic, explosive lead vocalist/guitarist Walter Lee, and driven by the untamed Jay Scars on lead guitar, Chaz Graves on bass and Seven on drums, they have cultivated immense recognition and rave reviews of their full length debut "Too Rock For Radio."
Not every band can boast the title "Best unsigned band in America"… Rockett Queen can. \u2028\u2028Rockett Queen quickly earned the title "Best Unsigned Band in America" by winning the contest that led their hit single "The Next Big Thing" to be featured in the full length film "John Tucker Must Die." This earned them a spot on the soundtrack along with The All American Rejects, Cartel, Ok Go and many more. With the buzz building, it wasn't long before MTV beckoned and featured "The Next Big Thing" in their hit TV show "Newport Harbour". Following the success of their single "TNBT" Rockett Queen quickly raced back into the studio to record their sophomore EP "Kiss and Tell," which has already been called "the best thing Rockett Queen has released to date." The track “Since You Been Gone” gained notoriety and received heavy airplay on Top 40 radio station The Breeze, where it continues to thrive.
While building a devoted following in the U.S., Rockett Queen also released TRFR in Japan on Little Rock Records. "Inrock," one of Japan’s largest music magazines, featured a full 2-page spread on Rockett Queen alongside Avril Lavigne, Paramore, Fall Out Boy, HIM and the Foo Fighters.
Since the release of TRFR, Rockett Queen has persevered playing thousands of shows for over 25,000 fervent fans with artists including Hinder, Powerman5000, Fuel, The All American Rejects, Yellowcard, New Found Glory, Story Of The Year, Bowling For Soup, Coheed and Cambria, Thrice, Bad Religion, The Sounds, Senses Fail, My Chemical Romance and Thursday, in addition to multiple stops on the Vans Warped Tour.
Poised to ascend to new heights, Rockett Queen has recorded and is prepared to unleash their new EP “Goodnight California” featuring the hard-driving anthem and their first single “I Hate You”, Rockett Queen is devoting the summer of 2011 to racking up miles on the blacktop as they continue to tour and be up close and personal with each of their Rockett Queen Nation fans.
