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.

Official Release

Tuesday November 24, 2009 will mark the official release of our 2nd album, (1st studio quality) This Holy October. It has been a long few years working on the album and we are very pleased with the outcome.

I'd like to take this opportunity to express my personal thanks to and admiration for my comrades Paul, Mike, and Eric. You are all truly gifted at what you do and it has been a priviledge and honor working with you guys. I look forward to the future of Rochambeaux.

Thanks to Ernie and James who have rounded out our live line-up. I hope you guys are willing and able to contribute in the future as well.

Now it's time to promote the album and perhaps play a few live shows and relax some. Thanks to everyone for the support and look around the site for details on downloading or otherwise getting ahold of your own little piece of Rochambeaux.

Battle of the Bands

Thanks to everyone who came out and saw us Saturday night at Battle of the Bands. Whether we previously knew you or just met you that night, we appreciate your support and interest.

Thanks to everyone who came by the merchandise table and let us sign a CD for you. It was awesome to see so many of you up close and to know that you enjoyed the show. Please feel free to copy that CD and share it with someone who couldn't make the show or anyone you think would like it.

In a few days we will post video of our set here and also have FREE downloads of the audio in our free downloads section to your right. So check back and download that stuff.

Thanks to Adrianne Wagner and the rest of the Sun staff and show sponsors for putting on this show and giving local music a chance to showcase itself. Hopefully we can do it again next year.

Again guys, thank you all for the support and love, and much respect to every band that showed up and played their hearts out. Later.

Upcoming Show

We'll be playing a short set at the 2009 Yuma Battle of the Bands on November 7th. The show takes place at the Yuma Palms Shopping Center. The stage will be just north of Hot Topic / Zumiez. We go on at 10 pm.

Our good friend Ernie Cano will be joining us playing bass and completing our live line-up. This show will mark the 1st full blown live show for us. Up until now we've strictly been a recording project, with only an acoustic show under our belts. So it's with great excitement, and only a few rehearsals that we bring you this historic 1st performance. Come check it out and enjoy the difference between the live show and he studio efforts. Equally good, but it will be different. We will be giving away free CDs of the new album after our set, so stop by the merchandise table and get one while they last.

We hope to post photos and video of the set shortly after. Thanks for all the past and future support.
