We're so proud! Bryce Avary -- a.k.a.The Rocket Summer
-- earned the cover of the April edition ofAlternative Press
. (Full disclosure: I've written for AP on and off for a couple years, but nothing about The Rocket Summer.
) The national music mag will surely have a big feature (um, that's what always happens when you're on the cover), so Rocket Summer fans will want to pick up the mag when it hits stands March 4. Until then, AltPress.com hasa feature on TRS
its Web site right now featuring in interview from the 2007 Warped Tour. Plus, Avary is sharing the cover with us already. --Chelsea Ide
