We Can Be Astronauts Short Info

In their short time together as a band, We Can Be Astronauts have supported some of their favourite bands including Tall Ships, Bear Makes Ninja, Alarm Bells (ex-Dananananaykroyd) and Johnny Foreigner. Having just self-released their debut single ‘Lighthouse for Chemistry’ with a second single already prepared for release in early 2015, We Can Be Astronauts formed in their current incarnation in the summer of 2013 with new members, new energy and new intentions. Delving into the alternative rock genre, We Can Be Astronauts create solid rock tunes mixed with inspirations from math-, post- and prog rock.

Their upcoming single, Glass & Grit, will be released through The Robot Needs Home Recordings, run by members of internationally touring post-rock band maybeshewill, after joining the collective in March 2015, and will be released on 30th March.

We Can Be Astronauts are looking to expand further afield in the UK, taking advantage of collectively being based in the 3 vibrant music cities of Leicester, Liverpool & Leeds.

“with tightly tearing guitar and shrieking vocals… these guys deliver a powerful and enjoyable dose of alternative post-prog that keeps the crowd lively and heads banging"
-Bido Lito!

"Four accomplished musicians playing angular phrases, discordant riffs, complex rhythms and contrapuntal passages that had exhilarating impacts... A band I would definitely like to see again. Extraordinary"
