Astronautalis’ new single “SIKE!” is officially out TODAY!
Pick it up on iTunes, stream that fire on Spotify, add it to your “best songs ever” playlist on Apple Music, create a station on Pandora, or add it to your cart full of random shit on Amazon.com! We can’t wait to show you what else Andy has up his sleeve but in the meantime, “SIKE!” should keep ya pretty entertained!
Some shitty news today but we hope that by sharing this post, we can track some of this stuff down. Jeff Rosenstock and his band had their van broken into today in San Francsico at Protrero and 19th. Below are a bunch of photos of the missing gear but they’ve basically lost everything– Jeff’s two guitars, Mike’s guitar, John’s bass, Kevin’s hardware and cymbals, and their keyboard amp (not to mention all of their clothes!).
Jess Flynn was kind enough to share these photos so take a close look and let us know if you catch any of these items in a pawn shop in town or anywhere online.
When you first find out that we’ve signed a “rapper,” you might do a double take. But when you learn that Minneapolis-based musical mastermind Andy Bothwell, better known by his stage name Astronautalis, spent multiple summers on the Vans Warped Tour, and counts people like Sean Bonnette of Andrew Jackson Jihad among his personal friends, then the news of his signing to SideOneDummy should come as no surprise. Honestly, we have a lot in common with him and we can’t wait to release the brand new Astronautalis album in 2016!
Today, fans can hear “SIKE!,” a blistering new single from Astronautalis. Produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Modest Mouse, Bill Callahan) and beat by Adam Pickrell (St. Vincent), it’s a feisty and assertive track featuring horns by Reggie Pace (Bon Iver, No BS! Brass Band) that The A.V. Club declares is “brimming with energy and befitting of its exclamation point.”
