LA-located alternative rock/pop punk band ROCKET have been on the music scene since 2013, fine-tuning their energetic live shows and sharpening their songwriting skills. Along the way they’ve built up a dedicated following and critical praise from the likes of CBS Los Angeles, which called ROCKET one of the “best bands to catch” live.
ROCKET, comprised of Janelle Barreto (lead vocals), Eric Wibbelsmann (guitar), Steve Kilcullen (guitar), Jordan Lawson (bass), and Paul DePatie (drums), have gotten solid airplay on KROQ, KLOS, and Indie 103.1, and have shared the stage with big names including Bow Wow Wow, Alien Ant Farm, and Puddle of Mudd.
The band recently released their rousing and catchy debut single “Giants,” which they worked on with Grammy Award-nominated producer Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, The Killers, Pink, Neon Trees) and recording engineer Doug Grean (Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver, Sheryl Crow).
Rebel Noise is stoked to be hosting the premiere of the vivid and fun new video that accompanies “Giants.”
The band members’ bold personalities and driving passion are on full display in the performance video. The all attack the high-energy, up-beat track with gusto in two separate, but intercut performances, whaling away on their instruments while frontwoman Barreto delivers the lyrics with palpable fervor.
The excitement is infectious, and the track and video pop and rock, bristling with enough defiant punk attitude to give it a gritty edge.
ROCKET is playing the Whisky a Go Go on November 16th with The Atomic Punks.
