Rocket Miner is a post-rock/instrumental band from Chicago, IL with heavy reverb drenched majestic landscape shaped by crushing yet cascading guitars. At their very first live performance, it's not unbelievable that Chicago band Rocket Miner was mistaken by an attendee for Russian Circles, another bombastic instrumental outfit from the area. Both bands deliver devastating distortion and ear-ringing quakes of sound in a genre that didn't have many heavyweights as of 20 years ago. But while Russian Circles take darker turns and incorporate metal-esque riffing, Rocket Miner's songs tend to blossom in slow-motion, like flowers blooming, giving plenty of time to allow the sweeping grandeur to earn its reward.
Hailing from Chicago, Rocket Miner has been creating their blend of post-rock. Combining elements of shoegaze, heavy riffs, classical themes and other varying elements into their sweeping instrumentals. Formed in 2010, Rocket Miner has been receiving praise for their songs and live shows from day one. Rocket Miner's sound has been compared to Post-Rock stalwarts Explosions in the Sky and Russian Circles. They have also shared the stage with many fantastic bands like Junius, You.May.Die.In.The.Desert, and The Life and Times.
