Buy THIS HOLY OCTOBER Direct from Us


Rochambeaux is an Arizona based hard rock project that combines a dark and heavy rhythm section with insanely melodic lead guitarwork. This armada of sound is helmed by a vocal mad man who brings forth an eerie and precise style comprised of influences ranging from Metal pioneers to R & B legends.

With no agenda or platform higher than simply creating fun and interesting heavy music with obscure and universally vague meanings, Rochambeaux just might be what you're looking for in this age of not knowing what to think of anything anymore.

Please explore our site which follows. You can purchase our music either directly from us, or through various digital music stores like iTunes, at the links to your right. T-Shirts are also available. In addition we offer some free downloads.

My Brother the Author

My brother seems to think he can get away with writing story telling games of silliness and shenanigans without me commenting on it. Like me, he is artistic except that he writes instead of making noise. In reality he's sold more books than we have songs to date and probably his internet presence is better as well.

Now I can't understand why anyone would want to sit around pretending all the time but apparently there's an entire society out there that enjoys this type of group solidarity. So if you're so inclined, check out his site at the link to your right. If you happen to play role playing games try his out.

Getting Back to Business

Happy New Year. It's been awhile since any of us have posted here but to let you know, Paul, Mike, Eric and I are still hard at work at completing our album. In fact Eric came over the other night and laid down some leads on a song. My personal goal is to have the album completed by October 2009 since the title definitely would make more sense then.

The hold up seems to be the fact that Paul resides in the Valley of the Sun and the rest of us reside somewhere closer to Mexico. Getting everyone together is a logistical feat so things are progressing slower than anticipated. We also all have significant others and kids which happily consume much of our time.

Paul either just did or is about to have his second child so he'll be out of commission for awhile, though I hope I can get him in the studio soon for more vocal sessions. Either way, I'm making a resolution to post more often here to keep you informed as to what we're doing and when you can expect the new album.

I hope you had a great holiday season and next year you should be able to hear some new Rochambeaux while you torment trick or treaters or open presents.
