Blasting out of a dirty basement’s rehearsal room there comes the straight forward punkrock sound of Austria’s very own Astpai. Think of None More Black meets Angus Young meets Dan Yemin, never lacking a sense in melody and sing-a-longs. This heavy rocking Hardcore/Punk sound comes along with both very personal as well as political views and offers some new ideas without just presenting shallow paroles and drained statements. This young band managed to release 2 full length demos between 2002 and 2003 and is now holding their strongest releases to date in hands including their latest full length called “Corruption concealed (under deceptive slogans)”, released by Rise or rust records for Austria, Fond of life records for the rest of europe and Jump Start records for the US and a split-cd with UK’s ATTACK! VIPERS! out on we heart records for the uk and laserlife records for parts of the european mainland. after three busy years including first euro-tours in 2007, a 5 week tour along the east coast of the usa and a 3 week tour throughout western european parts plus UK in 2008 followed by a total of 7 weeks of touring Europe/UK and a 6 week long tour throughout the entire USA and parts of Canada in 2009, Astpai just finished mixing their upcoming album “Heart To Grow” which will be out in summer 2010, leading the band into further tours and some smaller split-releases with friends bands. ASTPAI love to be busy and they’re busy with what they love.
