Former The New Frontiers Member Joins The Rocketboys, Plays Winter Tour



DALLAS, TX-- Former The New Frontiers drummer and engineer/producer, Alex Bhore has joined
Austin-based group, The Rocketboys. “We've all been friends for a long time and I really believe in
their music and the direction they are heading,” said Bhore. “There was also a few death threats, some
snakes involved and something about an 87' Camaro.”


You might remember The New Frontiers as the Dallas band that in 2008 released a much-talked-about

album Mending, only to break up a year later. “After The New Frontiers, playing with The Rocketboys
made the most sense; personally and musically,” said Bhore.


The Rocketboys, fresh off CMJ in New York, are currently making quite a stir in the music industry
with their first full length album, 20,000 Ghost. The band will perform a string of dates for their Winter tour before

taking a short break and hitting the road early next year.

Dates are below
The Rocketboys 2009 Winter Tour:
11/6 Waco, TX - Common Grounds
11/10 Dallas, TX - TREES
11/11 Austin, TX - Mohawk
11/12 Houston, TX - The Mink
11/13 Beaumont, TX - Barking Dog
11/28 Oklahoma City, OK - The Conservatory
11/29 Tulsa, OK - The Marquee
11/30 Fayetteville, Ark - George's Majestic Lounge
12/1 Topeka, Kansas - The Journey
12/2 Kansas City, MO - Davey's Uptown
12/3 Columbia, MO - MOJO's
12/5 Little Rock, Ark - Vino's

I loved The New Frontiers. I wish they didn't break up, but this is amazing news. I loved The Rocketboys' full length and EP back when they were called Homer Hiccolm and the Rocket Boys.

I saw Alex play with the rocketboys in carmel. I remember me and my friend were trying figure out who the new drummer was and I half jokingly said "maybe he was in The New Frontiers", just because they were two indie bands from texas. When we asked the guys if he had played in any bands previously, we about died. He's a good fit for the band.

20,000 Ghosts doesn't sound like a debut album... it sounds like a work from a group that has played together for years. Every track is compelling. How long is this band going to go undiscovered?
