Calling All Astronauts return to their punk rap roots, reminiscent of their early incarnation as the seminal US:UK, more years ago than they care to remember the trio played with the likes of Faith No More, PWEI, 24/7 Spyz, headlined London’s Astoria as an unsigned band, sold out Camden Palace and The Marquee, a lot has happened to them since then, Guitarist J has toured Europe and the US extensively as a member of Pop-Punkers Caffeine, sharing stages with The Offspring, Blink 182, AFI, Rancid, Bassist Paul joined goth stalwarts The Marionettes headlining festivals and playing shows throughout Europe and singer David taught himself to be a record producer.
Before they all teamed up again as Calling All Astronauts, now on their third album and nineteenth single they have now gone full circle as sneering punk meets rap and metal for “Divided States Of America” The track also sees David’s 3 year old daughter Daisy make her musical debut, Alan Branch (NIN, Depeche Mode U2) was mixing the track and asked David to record a straight version of the chorus for the end, Daisy heard Daddy doing the lines over and over and proceeded to run round the studio singing the chorus, a mic was quickly handed to her and the rest is history.
Divided States Of America is release via Supersonic Media on September 18th 2020.
