Ladies and Gentlemen! We are happy to announce the preorder for the new Astpai 7inch “Crohnicles”. 3 brand new songs, recorded mixed and engineered by Trevor Reilly and Mike Supina from A Wilhelm Scream. Mastered by Stephen Egerton from The Descendents. All three songs on this 7″ deal with the topic of Crohn’s Disease, an inflammatory bowel disease which singer Zock was diagnosed with seven years ago, followed by major surgery. For Zock working on this record was the healthiest way of dealing with being sick.
The first 40 preorders will contain a limited patch and sticker so make sure to be in time!

The three tracks on Crohnicles is Astpai’s first new material and follow up to 2012’s full-length effort, Efforts And Means. Recorded and mixed by Trevor Reilly and Mike Supina of A Wilhelm Scream (Mike also added a sweet little over-the-top guitar solo at the end of “Just Ask”) and mastered by Stephen Egerton of The Descendents, this three song 7” deals with the topic of Crohn’s Disease, an inflammatory bowel disease which Zock from Astpai was diagnosed with seven years ago, followed by major surgery. To say working on this record has been therapeutic would be an understatement!
Ass-Card Records is stoked to work with our US partner Jump Start and Benelux Partner Sheild Recordings. Punknews posted a stream of all three songs from the 7” EP which you can check out right here. We’ll also be launching a video for the track “2000 Pills” along with an awesome pre-order for the 7” that’ll include some limited edition patches along with the special limited edition colored vinyl on September 20th, so keep your eyes peeled!
