The band, Mars Rovers, is fourteen years in the making. The musical pairing of Christian and Louis began in 2008 through sharing earphones on the school bus and taking trips to Rocking Horse Records. Their similar tastes in music and the fact that one just so happened to play guitar while the other played drums formed the first version of Mars Rovers, but the name was yet to come.
In mid 2021 the band went into the studio to begin tracking their debut album. Tell Me A Joke is the first single; a dark first taste to the album. The song features additional sound design elements which stems from Christian's background in the sound design industry.
