High octane Morpeth-based rockers Rocket Boy celebrate their debut album, Resolute, which lands on all formats on 30th August.

Known for producing anthemic rock and mind blowing guitar riffs, Rocket Boy – made up of vocalist Chris Hill, guitarist Chris McDonald and producer Andy Bell – are kickstarting their repertoire with a pretty incredible debut album which isn’t short of high octane bangers.

The group have an abundance of previous performance experience; Chris Hill first began his career playing for various successful bands including Splitz and Sister Ray (which also included The Smiths’ Johnny Marr), but a desire to focus his attention on songwriting during the pandemic led to a collaboration with sought after session guitarist Chris McDonald and producer Andy Bell, resulting in Resolute being recorded at Blast Studios.

Air guitar enthusiasts will be captivated by every track on this album, from technical guitar solos and clever hooks to brilliant lyricism and melodic lines, it’s a real study in musicality. There are plans afoot to bring the sound to the live stage, with a fourth member being sought out to help show off those mighty riffs in their full glory.
