Based in Dublin, Ireland, Wild Rocket have been developing their combination of heavy psych and kraut-infused space punk for the past five years. Since the release of their debut LP Geomagnetic Hallucinations in 2014, the band has gone from strength to strength, performing at the Distorted Perspectives and Reverberation Festivals in Ireland and the Hostsabbat Festival in Norway. Wild Rocket have shared stages with internationally renowned contemporaries such as Slomatics, Ufomammut, and The Cosmic Dead.
Wild Rocket have gained a reputation for pummelling and immersive live shows laden with infectious energy. This energy has been captured perfectly on their second album Dissociation Mechanics, which will be released on July 7th through Art For Blind Records. The record was engineered and produced by the Deaf Brothers, having previously worked on acclaimed records from No Spill Blood, Alarmist and Meltybrains?.
Dissociation Mechanics explores themes of deep sea and deep space, the repetitive cycles of depression and the self-destruction of civilisations. The subtext of the album is influenced by the inability of the human race to learn from past mistakes and break calamitous cycles, instead looking to alternate dimensions for escape rather than efforts to change the observed reality. To put it more bluntly, it’s all about getting through life with savage riffs.
The band will be playing Irish release shows throughout July & August 2017 in Dublin, Letterkenny, Belfast, Galway, Cork and as part of the GGI punk festival in Carlow.
