ROCKET SCIENTISTS Song Included in Japan Opera Company Production

The acclaimed all-female Japanese theater company Takarazuka has used the ROCKET SCIENTISTS song "Revolution Road" in its fall production of "Adieu Marceille/Love Symphony" which ran in Tokyo from September 21 to October 29, 2007. "Revolution Road" was used in the production alongside compositions by John Coltrane, Henry Mancini, Johnny Mercer, and Cole Porter. A live CD of the production was release on December 20, 2007.

"Revolution Road" songwriter Erik Norlander comments, "It was a real thrill to hear my music played in this context with such a lavish orchestral arrangement. I particularly enjoyed the dramatic horn parts which reminded me of the famous John Barry James Bond scores. Also, to be included in a production next to such legendary jazz composers is a tremendous honor for me."

"Revolution Road" was released November 7, 2006 on the epic 2-CD album of the same title by American progressive rock legends ROCKET SCIENTISTS. An extraordinary blend of melodic and memorable songwriting with adventurous instrumental fireworks, "Revolution Road" took the band to new heights of artistic achievement. The CD features founding members Mark McCrite (guitar, vocals), Erik Norlander (keyboards) and Don Schiff (NS/Stick) along with special guest performers.

Think Tank Media has just released a five-disc multimedia box set called "Rocket Scientists - Looking Backward" that reissues the band's first three studio albums along with a fourth disc of new studio recordings and a DVD of in-studio performances, extensive interviews and historical footage.
