Astronoid, who release their self-titled sophomore album on February 1st via Blood Music, share a second song from the forthcoming release, debuting A New Color via Brooklyn Vegan.

“We knew A New Color would open the record as soon as it was written,” explains Brett Boland. “The mood of this album is much different than ‘AIR.’ This is the closest I’ve been to wearing my heart on my sleeve. It feels real and true. A New Color was a pivotal point in the writing process that solidified the direction we wanted to move in and a perfect place to start.”

The band previously shared a video for the new song, I Dream In Lines.

Physical and digital pre-orders of ‘Astronoid,’ which include instant downloads of both I Dream in Lines and A New Color, are available now here and here!

Immediately following the February 1st release of ‘Astronoid,’ the band returns to the road, joining Between the Buried and Me and TesseracT for a month-long U.S. tour.

Astronoid’s debut full-length, ‘AIR,’ was one of the most talked about, and unexpected, releases of 2016. Consequence of Sound, in their year-end best of coverage, said the band “have taken post-metal to stratospheric new heights.” Noisey said ‘AIR’ is “the happiest dream thrash record you’ll ever hear,” while numerous outlets including LoudwireStereogumMetal Injection and Invisible Oranges championed the young Northeastern four-piece by placing the album on their year-end best of lists. MetalSucks declared the nine-song album “an instant classic.” In the months that followed, the band joined Tesseract, Periphery, Animals as Leaders, Ghost and Zeal & Ardor for multiple North American tours.

Astronoid is Brett Boland (vocals / guitar), Daniel Schwartz (bass), Casey Aylward (guitar) and Matt St. Jean (drums). The band was formed in 2012, releasing two EPs over the next year: ‘Stargazer’ and ‘November.’ ‘AIR,’ the band’s debut full-length album, arrived in June of 2016.
