Push Play is available for pre-order Here digitally and on limited edition orange or black 12” vinyl from Friday September 22. Fashion Emergency, the new single from Rocket Science depicts a world that is forever obsessed with minutiae and the self.

“Our reliance on fashion and cheap manufacturing to keep us amused lead us on to a hostile, dystopian future. Fashion Emergency sees the audience become voyeurs in an irony free and urgent conversation between a stylist, photographer, and makeup artist. The model is not invited into the discussion and neither are we.”

Now in their 25th year together, Rocket Science are releasing their sixth long player Push Play. Conceived and nurtured in Naarm during the long dark nights of lockdown, Push Play reveals the many faces of Rocket Science’s myriad influences, musical, social, sartorial, and chemical.

Recorded and produced by the band and guitarist Paul Maybury at his A Secret Location Sound Recorders studio and mixed by Paul ‘Woody’ Annison, nothing was left unexplored, no flight of imagination unfollowed in the creation of this work.

Rocket Science shows are a phenomenon that can only be truly appreciated in person. Playing at venues near you in Oct-Nov 2023, the Push Play album launch tour will deliver flavours old, new, and sometimes askew.

Rocket Science’s Fashion Emergency single and their long awaited sixth studio album Push Play are out Friday September 22 and available here.
