Thread: Astronot - Album Launch Party

  1. #1

    Default Astronot - Album Launch Party

    Hey folks, we're having a wee shindig in Skins to celebrate our new album "Renaissance". Hope to see a few of you there.





    We're also supporting Hayseed Dixie in the Waterfront, Wick on the 22nd March.

    Cheers.

    Hi guys,

    Congrats on the speedy recording!!

    I was wondering if you have any pre-release copies for sale, as I am set to go back offshore to work on the thursday before your bloomin launch party!! GRRR

    If the EP and demo are anything to go by, it should be a corker!!!

    The very best of luck

    James

    ps

    What time of night are you onstage before Hayseed???

    Hi James, We've not got the final master yet (should be here this week). I'll try popping one down to you at some point before you go off.

    Ah yes... Hayseed Dixie gig... erm, pass. We've not got a scooby doo when we're on. Hopefully find out this week. I'll put a post up when we know.

    Ach... We're no bothered about love or hate. I'm sure we've got people on both sides of the coin.

    Cheers again though Cedric, much appreciated. Sure it'll be a good night

    Jeid

    I would certainly appreciate that! and a heads up on the Hayseed gig as and when...lol

    Cedric...I have been touting Astronot to my mates offshore and in a recent newspaper interview in the Orcadian...So lads, try and get a gig in Fusion in Kirkwall...they like their Metal/Rock over the water!!! I think it is only a matter of time till the lads break into the big time...

    Also

    Dont know if you have heard them, but I have discovered a couple of superb bands lately....Seether ---- a Nirvanaesque/Metallicaesque band...
    and RISE AGAINST - A brilliant antiestablisment punk band with some great tracks!

    Cheers

    James

    I don't know what to say to this. You didn't discover any of these bands, they're both relatively mainstream and both a bit meh.

    Anyway...promoting the band in the islands seems like a good shout, go for it lads!

    No worries James, I'll get that sorted out and down to you. I'll see if I can get some info about the Wick Gig as well.

    I've got all the Rise Against albums... a great band. I've got the Seether album, and it's got a few good songs on it too.

    I don't think he meant "I discovered this band.." Blast! I think he meant he found a band that I might not have heard of and was sharing the excitement of music. I'm a big Rise Against fan... I believe Stevie is as well.

    Orkney would be awesome... I shall look into that.

    Yeah I think Jeid is right there Blast! - James is obviously referring to the fact that he has heard them for the first time recently.

    Anyhoo... Rise Against... I've only heard a couple of tracks of theirs, one being Prayer of the Refugee and the other being Swing Life Away - totally different songs but not bad at all...

    Were Seether the band that did the track with Amy Lee?!

    P.S. if you lads can get a gig over the water, go for it. As James says - they're well into their rock music over there.

    Hello mate, Yes Seether did do a song with Amy Lee, it was called "Broken".
    I have all their albums, including the early stuff when they were called "Saron Gas" and its safe to say they have about 3 good songs.

    Also, they immensly enjoy covering Nirvana songs, think they have covered about 5 or so thus far and it gets rather annoying.


    Back on topic, roll on the 29th march for Astronot gig, should be a good night!

    Yes Kev, for a tech, your priorities are a bit skewed. Mind you... as you long as you keep looking after Stevie, I have no problem with it.

    If it wasn't for BigKev... who knows what would've happened to Stevie that night, he'd maybe have made it home sober

    Going to look into playing Orkney for sure
