The Art Of Disconnectis a monumental track, where the band incredible songwriting range is in full display. The track features an intro with Coldplay-esque echoes, a hard-hitting verse with a gritty riff and an almost symphonic, chorus fuelled by dramatic vocals filled with pathos.
Front-man Nikki Smash comments: “This is the song that started this journey off. It’s about my mental health diagnosis and being relieved, I have answers but then being down about being labeled and carrying that around and that having a knock on effect.”
The Art Of Disconnectis taken from their forthcoming eponymous record due for worldwide release on 1stMay 2020. The release of The Art Of Disconnectis the living embodiment of how the rock music and the rock community are very much alive. The story behind the record sees The Rocket Dolls being one of the many bands affected by the PledgeMusic crisis. Undeterred, the band re-launched the fund-raising campaign from their own merch store, smashing the target thanks to their loyal fans.The Art Of Disconnecthas been two years in the making and shows a varied soundscape: the pure rock energy blends with hints of pop sensibilities and grunge riffs, creating their fullest and most accessible record yet.
Since 2018’s critically acclaimed album “DeadHead” the band has toured extensively, accumulating miles of road experience and playing festivals such as Hard Rock Hell, Ramblin’ Man and Planet Rockstock. The band will be hitting the road again in support of “The Art Of Disconnect” in May 2020, with special guest Deever.
