Zachery Binks and Colin O'Brien have been writing together since the age of 15 in 1997, writing short stories. they began writing music a year later, and have not stopped since. several musical incarnations were attempted, picking up Matt Mariani along the way, in 2006. driven by a persistent sense of urgency, a powerful message of true freedom and justice, and an absolutely insatiable NEED to be heard, they have gigged and toured relentlessly in the years since, facing unbelievable obstacles, and picking up massive amounts of experience along the way.
Hawks With Rockets became official in may of 2010 with the addition of Ray Walker and Zack Tracy, who have guitar training of twelve years, and have been writing together for the last eight. the combining of these writing forces created a colossal reaction, and Hawks With Rockets have been blasting off ever since, lighting up stages with fierce passion, and proclaiming an electrifying message of rebellion and revolution loud and clear. With the recording of their first album, "Ouroboros", and tour plans underway, Hawks With Rockets have truly only begun to leave their mark on the world.
