Feb. 1, 2019 – BOSTON – Astronoid, the “genre-defying” (Brooklyn Vegan), Boston-based rock band, release their self-titled sophomore album today via Blood Music.

“At the beginning, we were trying to outdo Air,” explains singer/guitar player Brett Boland, referring to the band’s debut album, which was met with reviews like “instant classic” (MetalSucks) and “the happiest dream thrash record you’ll ever hear” (Noisey). “We realized we didn’t have anything to prove, and we got back to writing for the personal fulfillment of it. There’s a lot of pressure on a second release, so many of the lyrics are about overcoming self-doubt and the perceived opinions of others. We decided it should be self-titled, because this is us in our purest form. We ended up taking more chances. We were able to be Astronoid.”

Reaction to Astronoid has been equally enthusiastic with Invisible Oranges saying “Astronoid clearly have more to say while still understanding the foundations of their debut” and Kerrang said “their new self-titled album sees the band increasing both the dreamy and metallic elements in their music, adding what can only be described as a passionate aggression to their still-luminescent character and firmly placing them in a league of their own.”
