Looking back now, it’s difficult to believe that A Rocket To Moon all started in Nick Santino’s bedroom three years ago when he harmlessly posted a few songs on the Internet. However what began as an electro-tinged sonic experiment quickly snowballed into a full-fledged band that’s toured with acts like 3OH!3 and Cobra Starship, played festivals like the Vans Warped Tour and Bamboozle and gained fans all over the world. “I never actually intended for A Rocket To The Moon to get this far,” Santino admits, adding he couldn’t be more thrilled about the current incarnation of the band. “I always wanted to take it to the next level and put a couple of guys in the act instead of having all the focus on me, so after Bamboozle ’08 we started performing as a full band and right now the sound is perfect.”

The current incarnation of A Rocket To The Moon—Santino, guitarist Justin Richards, bassist Eric Halvorsen and former The Receiving End Of Sirens drummer Andrew Cook—have put their collective experiences into the band’s full-length debut On Your Side, an instantly infectious collection of upbeat pop music that was produced by Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco, Boys Like Girls). “We had never recorded a full-length before and we learned so much from working with Matt,” Santino explains, adding that On Your Side was recorded in a scant seventeen days—a fact that only adds to the album’s sense of urgency. “We did it really quickly but we didn’t feel any pressure because we spent so much time preparing before we went into the studio,” he continues. “Justin and I are big country fans, so it’s got that feel to it mixed with a ‘90s pop-rock kind of vibe; it’s just an all-round fun album that doesn’t fit into one genre.”
