It is March 3rd 2013 which means it is time announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The only disappointing thing about this week's featured band is the simple fact that they live over nine hundred kilometres away from Kitchener, Ontario. Despite that, however, there are many reasons why A Rocket To The Moon are getting this week's featured spot for their incredible song Ever Enough.
To start off, this Braintree, Massachusetts pop/rock/punk band is one I just cannot keep my eyes off of since I discovered them many years ago.
It all began in 2006 as an "electro-tinged sonic experiment" in lead singer Nick Santino's bedroom. From that, it quickly blossomed into a much bigger project and [then] developed into A Rocket To The Moon. In 2008 Nick Santino (vocals / guitar), Justin Richards (guitar / backing vocals), Eric Halvorsen (bass / backing vocals) and Andrew Cook (drums) signed with Fueled By Ramen and then released their first EP, Greetings From....
A Rocket To The Moon's music was immediately a hit and fans just could not get enough, as could I. When they released their first full length record, titled On Your Side, in 2009, their fan base blew up. And, four years later as they now prepare to release their second full length record in March 2013, the guys have managed to gain well over six hundred thousand 'likes' on Facebook. Plus, they have scored several million views on Youtube as well.
I believe it is quite obvious as to why A Rocket To The Moon are taking this week's 'Song of the Week' spot. Their official music video for Mr. Right has built up just over three and a half million views on Youtube, as well as their 2009 single, Like We Used To, which brought in slightly over eight million views. Beyond that, they have plenty more videos which have insanely impressive views as well.
So, A Rocket To The Moon's current single, Ever Enough, is getting this week's featured 'Song of the Week' spot. This band already has five successful EPs and one full length record out under their name and fans know exactly what to expect with their upcoming release...perfection.
This band knows how to write phenomenal music and I cannot wait to get my hands on their upcoming release, Wild & Free.
If you have not seen A Rocket To The Moon's official music video for Ever Enough, this week's 'Song of the Week', definitely check it out. The song itself is insanely amazing, but to top it off the incredible Debby Ryan is featured in it as well. You can check it out on the band's Youtube Channel, here:
See you next Sunday for another 'Song of the Week' article to be added to our official website. Before then, catch up on A Rocket To The Moon's previous releases and mark your calendar for Wild & Free, due out in just twenty three days.
