LINE UP THE AMBULANCES! RAKETKANON IS IN TOWN!

 

RAKETKANON (Dutch for Rocketcannon) come in hard, shock, entertain, repulse and attract. The band released their debut album RKTKN#1 late 2012, gaining them nationwide fame for their insane live shows. In July 2014, RAKETKANON went camping in Chicago’s infamous Electrical Audio Studio to record their 2nd studio album with Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Pixies, Neurosis, The Jesus Lizard, …). RKTKN#2 was released 2015 and followed by extensive touring in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, Spain, Greece, Slovenia, Poland, Czech Republic, Holland and Belgium. With their first album RAKETKANON discovered what they sounded like and with #2 they refined this. With #3 Raketkanon searched (and found) how far they could take it.
