ASTRONOID, the Boston USA-based outfit who cemented themselves as one of heavy music’s most promising new bands with the 2016 album AIR, release their sophomore full-length, Astronoid, on February 1st via Blood Music. The band give an early glimpse into the music on Astronoid with new single/video ‘I Dream In Lines’. Watch here:
“After the completion of our sophomore album, we feel we have ventured further out of our comfort zone and created something special,” explains singer/guitar player Brett Boland. “The album encapsulates all the changes in our lives over the past couple of years. Astronoid is a testament to who we are as people, the music that consumes us, and the love in our lives. These songs hold a special place in our hearts and we hope that others can find the same solace in them that we have.”
ASTRONOID’s debut full-length, AIR, was one of the most talked about, and unexpected, releases of 2016 in the USA. Consequence of Sound, in their year-end best of coverage, said the band “have taken post-metal to stratospheric new heights.” Noisey said AIR is “the happiest dream thrash record you’ll ever hear” while numerous outlets including Loudwire, Stereogum, Metal Injection, and Invisible Oranges, championed the young Northeastern four-piece by placing the album on their year-end best of lists. MetalSucks declared the nine-song album “an instant classic.” In the months that followed, the band joined Tesseract, Periphery, Animals As Leaders, Ghost, and Zeal & Ardor for multiple North American tours.
The band will join Between The Buried and Me and Tesseract for a U.S. tour upon release of Astronoid and will tour Europe later in 2019.
