Belgian pop-punk outfit The Rocket have shared the first single from their forthcoming album ‘Another Reason Not To Fear The Sky’, which is due out 30th November. The single ‘Focus’ was premiered by New Noise Magazine, who described the band as having “a super keen ear for infectious melodies”, calling the track “punchy and impactful." See the premiere here.

Speaking about the single, the band said “It’s a very personal song, about dealing with loss. Or rather: about not dealing with it for way too long. The track has an up-tempo kind of energy to it; we really let our inner Four Year Strong demons out in the intro, ha. In our minds, the song serves as a mission statement for the rest of the album: time to get back from hibernation and literally regain focus.”

Having taken a break from writing together, the Rocket's new album ‘Another Reason Not To Fear The Sky’ sees the band return in full effect. Produced by Marc McClusky (Weezer, Motion City Soundtrack, Bad Religion) and mastered by Chris Athens (Beastie Boys, AC/DC, N.E.R.D), the record is proof of the reinvigorated energy that has seen the quintet earn an illustrious live reputation playing stages at the likes of Groezrock and alongside many other major European festivals.

The album also features guest appearances from Justin Pierre (lead vocals/guitar) & Joshua Cain (lead guitar) of Motion City Soundtrack, merging the band's first-era pop-punk influences (think-Millencollin, NFG, Blink 182) with some of their more synth driven melodic sensibilities.

With years of gigging experience their shows are full of anthemic choruses, hook-driven emotive vocals, melodious synth lines and rapturous drumming, The Rocket are ready to blow all expectations away with a record that pushes genre forward with new layers of intricacy and depth, whilst packing in the vigour and irrepressible choruses fans of the genre have come to know and love.

'Another Reason Not To Fear The Sky' is due out on 30th November and will be see the band continue to a number of shows across Europe throughout the rest of 2018.
