Uncalm Before the Storm

The madness has been on going and increasing over the past month!

We've had the honour of playing Blazefest III in the Empire, Belfast which was one hell of a show! A day long metal extravaganza the proceeds of which went to Belfast Children's Hospital!

The event itself was organised by Darren and Dawn Shields-Pettitt. Named after their son Blaze, it is testament to how much they love their son. Fair play guys! Thanks once again for having us and thanks to everyone who watched our set!

GAZtralnaut!


Our next outing was the Mother Fuzzers Ball St.Patricks Sabbath Vol.1 a heavy duty warm up for the St.Patrick's weekend festivities! Some serious neck damage was done that night and we played alongside some great acts Kerouac, Dark Matter, Electric Taurus and FiveWillDie

The headliners of the night Fivewilldie truly blew us away and we had the pleasure of sharing some intimate backstage time with those sound Cork lads...

Over the following few weeks we toured about familiar territory but to venues anew. We received a great crowd response in Portadown! The crowd was well warmed up by the time we hit the stage, thanks to Nocturnal Trip, Anti-Depressants and Katabolisis.

When the shit hits the fan... HEADBANG!

Draperstown the next night was another eventful night and it was great to visit the spiritual home of Glasgowbury, The Cellar Bar. Most definitely a place we will be visiting again! Despite the heavy snow we had an excellent line up consisting of The Stonemasons, The Last Generation and Dying Breed!

The next week brought us to our own spiritual home, shockingly this was the first time we'd played Stan's in Keady as the entity known as Astralnaut!

It was a great night playing along side some great local talent Only Escapades, Nocturnal Trip and Anti-Depressants! Three great bands well worth sinking your teeth into...


During that night we lost an hour and with some tender heads we made the long trip down the country for the Siege of Limerick! An awesome day of Irish Metal!
Many thanks to Ciaran and John from Bad Reputation for having us down!



Some people tend to over do it...

It was a long day of metal!

That said there's little left to shout about...


Only our second E.P. launch! Which is finally upon us!!

Our new E.P. "In the Gaze of the Gods" will be available and we are proud to announce we will be having support on the night from Cutter and Bad Boat!

Really looking forward to this one! Hope to see you there!

Thanks
