The Society of Rockets' 5th full-length album "Plutonian Blues" is now ready to go forth, rubbing its eyes, into the bright light of day!
Reserve a copy and help us share it with the world by supporting our Kickstarter project.
The Society of Rockets' fifth full-length album has completed its programmed gestational period and is now ready to go forth, rubbing its eyes, into the bright light of day! Assembled from spare drum machine beats, molasses melodies, and galloping guitars and held together with piano wire and tape delay, this strange mutant longs to make its way across the irradiated American frontier and onto your humble turntable. Where recent previous releases were focused outward on the futurological landscapes of Brazil, Germany and the UK, here the material ranges closer to home: Oakland, Houston, Los Angeles, Memphis (with a side-trip to Pluto). We hope you will wrap your arms and ears around it.
"Plutonian Blues" was recorded during 2013 and 2014 in San Francisco at Light Rail Studios. It was produced and engineered by the band with Chris Cline (...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, STEREO IS A LIE, The Foreign Resort) and mixed by Chris Cline. Mastering was performed by Gary Hobish (Willie Nelson, Dr. John, Creedence Clearwater Revival).
Sadly, just as we wrapped up production on "Plutonian Blues", our long-time partners at Three Ring Records announced that they were getting out of the business of pressing vinyl. So, we've turned to you, good friends and benevolent strangers, to help us complete the manufacturing and distribution of this album via Kickstarter. Reserve a vinyl and/or digital copy of the album and get other goodies like t-shirts and bonus material by backing the project before the end of October.
