Rockford is everything a rock band should be. Borrowing heavily from Seattle grunge legends Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and Alice In Chains, this three-piece from the rainy and damp lowlands town of Klundert, Netherlands is a step forward for heavy, grinding, slow-riffing detuned stoner rock that’s as pop as The Beatles.

Named after vocalist/guitarist Niels Schmitz’ birthplace in the USA, Rockford recorded their forthcoming label debut, Broken Records, out early 2022 through Grunge Pop Records, on analog tape with Patrick Delabie at his legendary Recording Studio 195 in Wernhout, Netherlands.

Watch the video for “The Noise In Your System” below:

On the track’s release, the band states:

“‘The Noise In Your System’ is about how you can still hear voices or sounds even when it’s completely silent. And sometimes this will drive you crazy. The song feels very uptight and in your face. That’s why we decided to use a lot of close-ups to intensify the claustrophobic feeling of the song. We recorded it in a self-made studio in the basement of singer/guitarist Niels Schmitz. The video is 1:48 minutes of pure claustrophobic, in your face, melodic rock.”
