ABOUT

Rockford is everything a rock band should be. Borrowing heavily from Seattle grunge legends Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains, this three-piece from the rainy and damp lowlands town of Klundert, Netherlands is a step forward for heavy, grinding, slow-riffing detuned Stoner rock that’s as Pop as The Beatles. One listen to their songs and you’ll be singing their lyrics unknowingly.

Named after singer/guitarist Niels Schmitz birthplace in the USA, Rockford recorded their forthcoming label debut BROKEN RECORDS on analog tape with Patrick Delabie at his legendary Recording Studio 195 in Wernhout, Netherlands.

In 2021 ROCKFORD has signed a multi-album record deal with the new indielabel Grunge Pop Records. ROCKFORD’s debut album has been released on 01-01-2023. As of Februari 2023 the album has surpassed 340.000 streams on Spotify.

Dutch Version
Rockford is alles wat een rockband zou moeten zijn. Geïnspireerd door de Seattle grunge legendes Soundgarden, Pearl Jam en Alice In Chains speelt deze 3 mans formatie uit het regenachtige en dampige gat Klundert in Nederland heavy, grinding, slow-riffing detuned stoner rock die zo pop klinkt als The Beatles. Eén keer luisteren naar de nummers en stiekem betrap je jezelf erop dat je de teksten de hele dag loopt te zingen.

Rockford verwijst naar de geboorteplaats van zanger/gitarist Niels Schmitz in de USA. Rockford heeft onlangs hun debuut album “BROKEN RECORDS” geheel analoog opgenomen in de legendarische Studio 195 van Patrick Delabie in Wernhout, Nederland.

In 2021 heeft Rockford een deal getekend met het nieuwe indie label  Grunge Pop Records.  De debuutplaat is gereleased op 01-01-2023 en is sinds februari de 340.000 streams gepasseerd op Spotify. Meerdere singles hebben de nummer 1 positie gehaald in de Indie Charts van IndieXL.

Press Quotes: “Debut Album: BROKEN RECORDS” (Release, Jan 2023)

“Rockford levert heerlijk zwaar aangezette grungerock waarbij de melodie nooit wordt vergeten. Hier is sprake van melodieuze grungerock die zich in je geheugen boort, eigenlijk al vanaf de eerste beluistering. Met topsongs als het titelstuk, Shade, Chains, Connected, Nothing To Believe en Tainted Glass is het een album om binnen handbereik te houden.” – BluesTownMusic (NL)
