ROCKETT LOVE was founded in 2015 by singer Daniel Samuelsson and guitarist Stefan Westerlund. Fueled by mutual interest in 80’s melodic rock, the two began recording original material in Daniel’s home studio. With only one song on iTunes and Spotify and absolutely no commercial back-up they received a lot of radio time and a fully packed venue when playing their debut gig. The song “Rocket Love” took off with a big viral spin when Beau Hill picked-up the track at his studio and produced it.
 
A year of writing and recording went by and in 2017 ROCKETT LOVE finally released the full-length debut “Grab the Rocket” on AOR Heaven.
 
In the following time, they set up their own studio and named it Meganoise, and the recordings began in early 2018. The duo needed to cut down the material from twenty something to 11 songs. When the recordings were finished, the Swedes sent the material to Erik Mårtensson (ECLIPSE, WET) to mix it.
 
ROCKETT LOVE now returns with the brand new CD on AOR Heaven called “Greetings from Rocketland” on August 30th, 2019. The band's second album contains 11 new tracks including the highlights “King for one day”, “Back on my feet” and the power ballad “Take me home”.
 
Stefan Westerlund comments: “This time the songs are for real, no compromises. Erik has done a fantastic job and we feel strongly about the album and what he did to the material. Now it’s up to the listeners to take it to their hearts. “Greetings From Rocketland” is a classic record full of great and melodic rock songs.”

After only one song on iTunes and Spotify and without any commercial backup, Swedish Melodic Rock band ROCKETT LOVE received a great deal of radio time and a fully seated venue playing their debut gig. The song “Rocket Love” had a big viral spin when Beau Hill took the song to his studio and produced it.
 
The band started in early 2015 when singer/songwriter Daniel Samuelsson met guitarist Stefan Westerlund at a local reunion concert. Fueled by mutual interest in 80’s rock, the two began recording original material in Daniel’s studio. ‘It became clear right away that we had something worthwhile after the first couple of songs’ says Daniel, ‘Stefan and me just clicked, and we knew the time was right to bring back this classic sound with a touch of modern production. The two began working on the EP “The best is yet to come” and contacted lead guitarist Gustav Eklund. He gave ROCKETT LOVE the tone and energy with his magic fingers that you only here in the great masters such as Michael Schenker and Gary Moore. Four songs were recorded, and the project emerged into a band. Bass player Dennis Vestman (Grand Design, Steel Attack) and drummer Fredrik Ahlin completed the group’s line-up. Fredrik and Daniel had a history as musical friends in both Sour System and Slip Into Silk.
 
With the band being complete and some new songs recorded ROCKETT LOVE entered the stage at Rockland, Sweden. Together with Grand Design they sold out the venue and the viral spin began. They had a really great song and sound in form of the track ‘Rocket Love’. The song traveled to the USA and was mixed there by Beau Hill. ROCKETT LOVE released ‘Rocket Love’ on various digital platforms in June 2016. With several gigs and a fast-growing audience the Swedes hit the studio to record their full debut album “Grab The Rockett” in Autumn/ Winter 2016. Halfway through the studio session ROCKETT LOVE contacted Studio Haga and met up with the young producer Christian Svedin. He had the ears, the courage and the stamina to lift the band even more.
 
The process in the studio shaped the tone of the band to what and where ROCKETT LOVE is today, and after almost a year of writing, recording and producing the album “Grab The Rocket” now is ready to show the world what good Hard Rock music is all about.
