Released via Supersonic Media: 11thMarch 2016
Supersonic Media are proud to present "Anti-Social Network" the eagerly awaited second album from London based Alt Rock three-piece Calling All Astronauts. Containing their hit single "Empire" (which is currently #3 in the Official European Indie Chart after it hit #1 on the Hypem Chart on the day of its November release), "Anti-Social Network" is the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut"Post Modern Conspiracy". It is the result of 20 months of insane creativity that saw the guys locked in their studio for days on end as they wrote, engineered and produced an album that stretched their creativity like never before.
The thought that they mash together Rock, Electro, Goth, DnB, Punk and EDM into a unique genre that is remotely listenable seems somewhat preposterous until you listen to "Anti-Social Network". They have in no way tried to hide their love for classic Alternative Rock, instead they have brought it firmly into the 21st Century. Known for not being ones to mince their words, Calling All Astronauts once again dig deep into the fabric of society. There are no elephants in their room as they take on controversial matters including; youth knife crime in "Hands Up Who Wants To Die", the war for oil in "Divisive", social inequalities in "Time To Fight Back" and the disposable consumer driven society in "God Is Dead". Yet they still manage to explore their softer side in "Empire", "Life As We Know It" and "Always Be True". Producer and vocalist David B says "We wanted to make an album we would buy ourselves, that pays homage to our heroes and many influences whilst still sounding like us. I think we've just about got there"
The cover artwork is photograph of a sculpture by South African artist Maurice Mbiyaki which just happens to be called "Anti-Social Network" the band felt it very much summed up the reason they had independently named their album the same. They approached the artist who said he'd "be honoured" if the guys used his art on their sleeve.
