Horsefly Rocket

  • by

“… a rock band from the southern United States? No, they are from Germany and only sound like that because they have a US singer!” Grippy, melodic guitar riffs meet tube vocals, flanked by radio-compatible hooklines and a solid rhythm section. Inspired by icons of the music world of the 70s, the band rides the wave of the increasingly popular New Wave Of Classic Rock (NWOCR) movement.After their debut in 2018, Horsefly Rocket is now based on their second album with Hammond Organ Sounds. Bluesy riff rock meets southern rock paired with psychedelic influences.

Hold On

(Single) 04-03-2020

“These days it is damn hard for everyone around the world who are affected by this pandemic, either healthily or economically. Many people are physically or psychologically exhausted because there is no certainty how and whether they can go on. Some give up hope completely and don’t even want to go on living. We hope that hope dies last and thus dedicate our new single “Hold On” to all those who have no more hope. We hope that the world, especially the world of the entertainment industry, can somehow survive this dire event. Carry on, no matter how difficult life can be!”

Horsefly Rocket

(Debüt) 29-06-2018

“Slow-burning southern rocker from Germany which brings to mind squinty–eyed gunfighters in dusty ponchos blowing holes through dirty horse thieves under a relentless baking sun, but with giant stacks of amplifiers behind them.” (Classic Rock Magazine UK)

“The listener can expect an appealing and powerful mix of guitar-heavy classic rock with blues influences. The focal point are the excellent vocals by Kevin Holloway. You should definitely remember the name Horsefly Rocket! ” (Rock Hard Magazine)

“Stylistically, the “horse flying rocket” thunders clearly in the direction of heavy-caliber classic rock in the tradition of Bad Company, Thin Lizzy, 38th Special and co.” (Schall Magazine)

“we are listening to very high quality (mostly uptempo) modern melodic heavy rock, which features awesome guitarwork and stunning vocals by Kevin. He has got a strong voice and thankfully the songs included here and very well constructed and showing a lot of soul and melodies to remember. Recommended band to check out for sure.” (Shutter`zine NL)
