Ready for Take-off

MILWAUKEE, WI, April 2018 – After a year of exploration and discovery, Rocket Cat has launched a new mission seeking out the next big adventure. Fueled by recent radio play in cities and states beyond their home base of Milwaukee, this high-energy, pop/rock foursome is heading out into the cosmos on a micro-tour of the region in 2018.

Rocket Cat started the year strong, holding the No. 1 spot on ReverbNation’s local and regional alternative charts and earning nominations for 2018 WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) Awards in two categories — “New Artist of the Year” and “Pop/Rock Artist of the Year.”

Drawing heavily from the music of their youth, the band’s sound is fresh yet familiar, leading listeners on an unexpected, supersonic journey of melodic rock that is greater than the sum of its parts, with heartfelt lyrics and lush instrumental layers. According to guitarist Chris Guse, there is a high level of mutual respect and dedication to collaboration amongst the band members. “I think the reason the songs work is that we complement each other’s individual contributions well – including the vocal, not only as a delivery mechanism for the lyric, but as a melodic instrument.  We are sensitive to what each other wants to do and interested in exploring each other’s ideas”.

This summer, Rocket Cat’s flight path will include stops in Appleton, Brookfield, Horicon, Riverwest, Shorewood, West Allis, and Richmond, IL. Stay tuned at or to see where their next intergalactic mission takes them.

The Universe has spoken and the message is clear: Time passes, responsibilities grow, but what’s been locked away remains burning brightly within. The world is full of signals and positive transmissions; be willing and seek them out. From that, radiance flows.
