Barb Rocks Signs Frantic Romantic To Her Management Roster!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 21, 2019

Barb Rocks announced the signing of San Jose's dreampop rockers Frantic Romantic to her management roster. Having worked with the band in their previous incarnation, as well as managing lead singer Mr. Kerosene's former band Drop Dead Sixty, it was only natural for Frantic Romantic to sign with the local band manager they already trusted and built repertoire with.

Frantic Romantic emerged from the ashes of Skyway View with an arsenal of new music, which they've been releasing monthly since October 2018. Comprised of six strangers who came together to handcraft a sonic, melodic miasma of songs, they’ve been compared to the likes of The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, and Psychedelic Furs. Both melodic and aggressive, they possess a sound sonically reminiscent of decades past, oozing 80’s new wave mixed with 90’s culture, with a stage presence to match. With four singles and accompanying videos released already, plus a new video and full EP coming this Spring, the band is ready to burst out of California music scene and gain traction wherever they can.

In regards to working together, Frantic Romantic's Mr. Kerosene said, "We’re very excited to announce our official partnership with Barb Rocks. Barb has a quality that few others possess: she really gives a damn. She wants musicians to succeed, and she’ll fight for bands even when they aren’t fighting for themselves. As a group, we feel our dedication to our work will not only be matched, but heightened by her services. She has a myriad of resources and she makes herself constantly available. We look forward to working with our manager and close friend, Barb Rocks."

Barb Rocks said of Frantic Romantic, "I’ve always been impressed with the drive, passion, and energy the band has to make it in this business. Not only is Frantic Romantic releasing quality songs with entertaining videos, they are also eager to learn and find new ways to garner people’s attention. Working with musicians who are actively involved in achieving their goals with a distinct creative vision is every manager’s dream, and together we can achieve new heights.”

Both Frantic Romantic and Barb Rocks are excited for this union and what the future holds, confident their working relationship will lead to prosperous years ahead.

Be sure to check out all the creative music videos Frantic Romantic has released in the last four months and be sure subscribe to their YouTube Channel! The band is currently shooting their new music video which they plan to release in March, followed by the release of their debut LP Celestina. And don’t forget to stream their music on Spotify!
