About the Band

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 have signed a multi-album record deal with the new label Grunge Pop Records which is based in Seattle (USA). The first 4 singles that were released have surpassed 250.000 streams on Spotify. Our 5th single: "Sixty-Nine" has been released in August 2022. ROCKFORD's debut album is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2022.

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 label Grunge Pop Records, die gevestigd is in Seattle (USA). De eerste 4 singles zijn de 250.000 streams gepasseerd op Spotify. De 5e single: "Sixty-Nine" is uitgebracht in Augustus 2022. De release van de debuutplaat staat gepland voor eind 2022.
