Rocketboy Concerts Achive 1996

In 1996, ROCKETBOY'S first album "No Sign Of Intelligent Life" was released. However, R.E.X. Record's own financial problems came to the fore and disrupted much of the initial push of the album. Despite this and with no tour support whatsoever, ROCKETBOY pushed ahead and played more shows in 1996 than they ever had before. R.E.X. was eventually bought out by a new label, Platinum, and ROCKETBOY went back into the studio to record their second album "Now That We Have Your Attention."
