New Acoustic Album: The Great Outdoors by The Rocketboys

To the surprise of their fans, Texas based rock band, The Rocketboys, released an acoustic album this week featuring acoustic versions of songs from previous EP’s and albums titled “The Great Outdoors”.
The album takes a different twist on many of the rock driven songs that The Rocketboys are known for. The acoustic versions of the tracks bring a sense of rawness, and soulfulness that seems to amplify the range of the original studio versions of these tracks. “The Great Outdoors” has a vibe that makes you want to be outside by a campfire sing with friends. The musicianship is excellent, with guitars, pianos, shakers, multiple vocals, and more.
I saw The Rocketboys open for Relient K a few years back. I remember my friends and I were blown away by the performance, and the quality of their music. Immediately after they finished the opening act, we rushed to the merch table and bought shirts.
“The Great Outdoors” shows the wide range and huge amount of talent that The Rocketboys possess.
The band has also announced that they have are almost finished working on their third studio album, some very exciting news.
