Line up the ambulances! RAKETKANON is in town!
RAKETKANON (Dutch for Rocketcannon) come in hard, shock, entertain, repulse and attract. After releasing their debut-album RKTKN#1, the band has been crushing stages all over Europe with memorable appearances at Eurosonic (NL), Pukkelpop (BE), Dour Festival (BE), Fusion Festival (DE), Plissken (GR), Mayfeld Derby (DE), and many, many more ...
In July 2014, RAKETKANON went camping in Chicago’s infamous Electrical Audio Studio, to record their 2nd album (RKTKN#2) with Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Pixies, Neurosis, The Jezus Lizard, ...).
Down tuned guitars, blasting drumbeats, deformed vocals and droney bass synths, coupled with an ear for great songs, make RAKETKANON without a doubt one of the most interesting bands in the European underground-scene today.
RAKETKANON grabs you by the neck, drags you violently out of your comfort-zone, gets in your face and leaves an impression you won’t be able to forget any time soon.
