The Age of Rockets is an orchestral/electronic indie rock group from New York City. The project started in 2003 by frontman Andrew Futral as a solo endeavor while he studied at the Purchase College Conservatory of Music. After winning the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in 2004, Andrew produced his first record, entitled The Drive Home. Shortly after, he was joined by fellow Purchase College musicians Bess Rogers and Saul Simon-MacWilliams. The band has toured the United States and the UK, and in 2008 their sophomore album Hannah was released. In 2009, the band announced plans to record a triple album, with three versions of ten songs comprising the material of the set.
