Project Rocket was an alternative rock band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 2002. The band consisted of members Andy Hurley, T.J. Minch, Kyle Johnson, Noah Nickel and Seth Lingebrigtson. The members originally played in hardcore, political metalcore and punk rock bands such as Racetraitor, Spitalfield, 7 Angels 7 Plagues, Knockout, killtheslavemaster, The Kill Pill and Vegan Reich before forming Project Rocket to develop their own pop punk and emo sound. In 2002, the band was featured on a split extended play with Fall Out Boy etitled Project Rocket / Fall Out Boy split EP.[1] They released their only full length album, New Year's Revolution in 2003.

Following the band's breakup in 2003, drummer Andy Hurley joined Fall Out Boy shortly before they released their first full-length album, Take This to Your Grave.[2] Seth's full name is actually "Seth Ingebrigtson", but is spelled "Lingebrigtson" on all articles about the band.
