July 27, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA – Austin, TX's anthemic indie-rock band The Rocketboys have released their first ever official video for there track "The Best" (, which is the last song on their recently released album Build Anyway.
A true epilogue to the new record, singer Brandon Kinder comes to terms with his disappointment and anger towards former bandmates and even makes something of an apology for his pain: "You spent your time trying to make a better life, while I was spending mine making up bitter rhymes"; "All those words I wrote, they've already died...If I ever had brothers, I hope you know that you were them".  It's a fitting and powerful end to a soaring rock record that covers endless ground in the search for explanations for the fragmentation and almost-breakup of the band.
The Rocketboys also announce a Fall tour schedule for August-October which covers the Central and Eastern US. A co-headline tour with Bearcat, the tour is in support of Invisible Children and will make available limited edition I.C. posters.  Download a free two song tour sampler, which includes an acoustic version of The Rocketboys’ new single “The Best” and Bearcat’s song “Let’s Be Honest,” here:
