Rocket from the crypt was an American rock band formed in 1990 and led by John Reis. Of Reis' many musical endeavors, Rocket From the Crypt were the most successful and most internationally recognized. The band gained critical praise and the attention of major record labels after the release of their 1992 album Circa: Now!, leading to a recording contract with Interscope Records. They experienced a surge of popularity with the release of their mid-90s albums Scream, Dracula, Scream! and RFTC, accompanied by numerous vinyl singles and EPs released on independent labels. Sales weren't as high as Interscope were hoping, so the band left the label. Shortly thereafter drummer Atom Willard left the band. During the time period of 1999-2000, Reis formed Hot Snakes and Sultans. After a brief revitalization of creative energy the band recorded 2 more albums, but were not as effective or interesting as before. They decided to disband in 2005 and played a sold-out farewell show on Halloween in their hometown San Diego. « hide
