Justin Richards of A Rocket To The Moon

arttmIt’s hard to imagine that a few years ago A Rocket To The Moon was just Nick Santino posting songs from his bedroom.  But from the very beginning Santino was clear that he didn’t want the focus to drop solely on him, that he wanted to be part of  something bigger.  That bigger picture is now the four piece known as A Rocket To The Moon (Santino, guitarist Justin Richards, bassist Eric Halvorsen and drummer Andrew Cook ) and their debut full length album titled “On Your Side” was released on October 13th.


The album is a collection of poppy upbeat tunes with elements of country, rock and folk mixed in.  Primary songwriters Santino and Richards didn’t realize the emerging theme of the songs until much later on in the process but the essence of the two main characters of Dakota (carried over from their EP) and Annabelle presented a good girl vs. bad girl theme throughout a lot of the songs proving in the end that true love always prevails.

The band recently wrapped up a ten day headlining tour where they hosted listening parties for their fans and are now jumping on the Boys Like Girls/Cobra Starship tour for the rest of the year.  Guitarist Justin Richards recently took some time to talk to us about the new album, the whole process, and the tattoos he has dedicated to his Mom and Dad.
