Grime rockers Astroid Boys have had their debut album announced a few weeks now, and the reaction it’s getting is pretty mega.
In case you missed it, the album will be titled Broke and it is due out September 29th. Preorder it here.
The band’s MC Traxx said of the album: “This album is called Broke, because we live in a broken society with a broken system, broken education; a broken world. Sometimes this can leave you feeling broken. First step to making a change is to recognise the problem. Being broke scares most people to death because we are taught that money = happiness, and without it we can’t survive. Says who? I’ve had some of the best nights of my life without a single penny in my pocket. I could never be Broke.”
Download Festival have today announced the second wave of bands who will be gracing the stage at Donington Park this year. After a massive announcement first time around with the likes of Biffy Clyro and Aerosmith being announced it would seem that the line up couldn’t get better yet with the likes of Four Year Strong, Sum 41, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan and Astroid Boys and many other joining the line up in this second announcement. Download is looking more and more like festival to not be missed when it comes around in June. Check out both announcements in the poster below.
