Started in 1999. Started the band with 5 member, Noor Al Kautsar (vocal), AskaPratama (guitar/vocal), Bisma Aria Nugraha (bass), RizkyFadli (guitar), Khrisnaa.k.aOzom (Drums). First was our all time favorites; the 80s new wave acts; The Cure, Alphaville, OMD, Nena, Culture Club, Cyndi Lauper, Duran-Duran, The Police, Joy Division etc. Second were what in our CD player recently; Pulley, Lagwagon, Weezer, Pearl Jam, NOFX, Blink-182, Pennywise, Reggie & The Full Effects, etc. We have 8 compilations and 2 full albums, now were preparing for our 3rd album. Our first album Soundtrack For Your Life was putting out by Off The Records (an independent label from our hometownBandung) which has been sold more than 20.000 copies, and our 2nd album (RasBebas) now in major debut with Sony/BMG Indonesia and recently it was sold about 45.000 copies.
We've been on skatepark tour all year with VOLCOM Indonesia, and play high school/college shows as many as possible. We've also opened Skin Of Tears show (punk rock from Germany), MXPX, The Ataris, All Time Low, Silverstein. Anyhow, we are sponsored by the greatest skate/surf companies ever, Volcom and also some awesome brands like College Star, Famous Stars & Straps, Afends, Peter Says Denim and Macbeth.
Actually it was like laying a big bet for playing punk rock music here and try to make a living out of it. Playing in a punk rock band or being a part of the (so-called) cutting edge is a super hard job. We have to try super hard to convince corporate people who have the money that we can add values to their business. Somehow, in the early days, the kids still feel strange to what we play. But we believe that we can pass this test and have a big smile in the end. Finally, after constant powering up grassroots activities, local TV, MTV Indonesia and radio are starting to recognize us and airplay our things. Thanks for the early believers.
Start from January 1st Ucay resign from the band, Now Rocket Rockers are in studio for their 5th album, with the new formation, so be ready for the next big thing in 2013!
