Astronuts - Dark Matters

ASTRONUTS is a four-piece Punkrock band from Mannheim, Germany.

Founded by members of pop punk veterans THE BARBECUTIES (Monster Zero Records) and SPYHOLE (Yo-Yo Records) in late 2018, ASTRONUTS dropped their debut EP 'SPACEMENT MISSION' in summer 2019. Their first full-length album 'DARK MATTERS' was released in September 2021 and is available on CD and digitally on any common streaming platform. Go check out the brand-new videos from Dark Matters on the bands YouTube channel.

Stylistically, ASTRONUTS play melodic Punk Rock in the vein of bands like Good Riddance or No Use for a Name, and blend it with poppy influences that remind of acts like The Menzingers, Ataris or Red City Radio. It is the wide spectrum of musical influences that makes up the band’s very own trademark sound, ranging from fast and melodic hardcore sing-alongs to melancholic downtempo anthems with a punky edge. By teaming up with new guitar player and Co-frontman Chris, who also fronts Ska-Punk powerhouse TEQUILA TERMINATORS, the quartet ultimately perfected their polyphonic vocal style, which amalgamates with crisp guitar harmonies, rolling bass and a powerful drumming.

With all four band members being deeply rooted in the punk scene since the nineteen nineties, ASTRONUTS lyrics clearly identify with the ethos of anti -racism, anti-discrimination and anti-capitalism. Their songs tell intimate stories of loss and despair in an ever-changing world full of injustice and segregation, meant to take heart and not to resign.
