No band? No problem.

Andrew Cook, of US rock act A Rocket To The Moon, is keeping himself busy even as the curtains are coming down on the band's seven-year run.

The drummer, 29, is dedicating his blocks of free time to his other interests, which include writing and painting.

Cook told LOUD over the phone while visiting his parents in Massachusetts, US, last week: "When I was younger, I used to draw all the time.

"I make a lot of art in my spare time - street art, stencils, spray painting. I like writing, too. Art, writing, music and football have always been my passion, so I will do a lot of all that after this."

In a shocking move, A Rocket To The Moon decided to call it quits just six weeks after releasing their second album, Wild & Free, in March.

Their debut album, On Your Side, came out in 2009.

The band - made up of Cook, lead vocalist Nick Santino, guitarist Justin Richards and bassist Eric Halvorsen - are playing a farewell tour and will be in Singapore later this month, their last stop on the Asian leg.
