We Build Rockets (facebook.com/webuildrocets) was an experimental post hardcore band from Concord, North Carolina. The band was started in February 2010 by Garrett Foster with nothing but a computer program and a dream. In the months following, Garrett started recording with The Danfangled Contraption, and eventually ended up having both Shane Ferrell and Stevie Onuska join the band. His long-time friend Jason Abbatiello then joined, and after a little searching and a few member changes, Daniel Myers and Connor Vogt became members of band. After a number of complications, Garrett Foster decided it was best to leave the band to pursue his current project Messenger Down (facebook.com/messengerdown). Shortly after, Stevie Onuska left the band as well. Guitarist John Gillon joined and the band continued playing together, but after a few months, John and Jason both decided to leave the band. After their departure, the remaining members of the band decided it was time to call it quits and start fresh. They teamed back up with Garrett Foster to start their current project The Johnstown Flood (facebook.com/thejohnstownfloodband).
