Raw energy. Fuzzy guitars. Unpretentious music. Chicago-style gutter punk n' roll at its finest. "The Lowest Point In Rock N' Roll History" is the new album by garage rock trio Team Rockit.

Chicago-based Team Rockit celebrate the Fall release of "The Lowest Point In Rock N' Roll History," their fourth album on Fire-tone Records.

The album captures vigorous grooves, spontaneous guitar solos, and memorable hooks, all thrown atop power pop melodies. Fueling comparisons to Urge Overkill, The Strokes, and The Figgs for band members Joe Sanzeri (vocals, guitar), Matt Friscia (drums), and Dave Damask (bass). They enlisted engineers Todd Bowie (Beck, Joe Walsh) and Dan Glomski (Pixies, Dandy Warhols) to mix "The Lowest Point In Rock N' Roll History."

Team Rockit released an EP "The Mirror" in 1999, followed by "Hell On Wheels" in 2001, and "Duck Duck Goose" in 2003. This brought about many opportunities: an opening gig for Marty Casey & Lovehammers, multiple tours in the USA and overseas, and a European distribution agreement with One on One Records.

After the success of Team Rockit's first music video "She Wants Us To Stay," in 2003 they decided to go for it again. The enhanced portion of the new album features two music videos that showcase the bands' humorous and fun personalities. "Something I Said" incorporates a Brady Bunch motif coupled with live footage, while "Know What I Mean" was recorded entirely in front of a green screen to transport the band into their own comic strip.

Critics continually chime in calling Team Rockit's music "nasty and sweet," and "powerful, tuneful rock and roll that will definitely leave you wanting more."
