Coming from the same city that’s home to two post-metal heavy hitters, Russian Circles and Pelican, Chicago’s Rocket Miner have carved a decidedly non-metal niche for themselves within the scene. Where Rocket Miner really stand out, not only from their hometown contemporaries, but in the genre as a whole, is their ability to write songs that don’t adhere to some of post-rock’s more tried and true characteristics. But while Russian Circles and Pelican take darker turns and incorporate metal-esque riffing, Rocket Miner's songs tend to blossom in slow-motion, like flowers blooming, giving plenty of time to allow the sweeping grandeur to earn its reward.


The band has performed with other sonically-minded bands (Junius, Spindrift, The End of the Ocean, Secret Colours, Cowboy Indian Bear) as well as those from overseas (Denmark's The Foreign Resort; Brazil's Labrinto), and have taken to simply giving away old merch at their shows - a gentlemanly offering for a band who, much like their own songs, are on the brink of something huge.

Rocket Miner just released their full length album "Elegy". Out now!
