Cosmonaut share video for "Choke," ready debut

Grand Rapids, Michigan trio, Cosmonaut has announced the release of their self-titled debut album on October 2.
Gritty but catchy, their sound can be described as a post-hardcore/rock band with a pop underbelly. The band got a lift when space-rock heroes Allen Epley (Shiner/The Life and Times) and Eric Abert (The Life and Times) approached them to produce the album.
Speaking on the connection Brian George (guitar/vocals) relates “we ended up playing with The Life And Times at a club called The Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids. After the show, Allen and Eric said that they loved what we were doing and needed to record us. Being asked that by a band that we idolize, it was a good shot in the arm for us.” In addition to Production, Epley decided to add chorus/back-up vocals on three different songs unprompted.

Rounded out by Rodney Johnson (bass) and Josh Stacey (drums/vocals) Cosmonaut formed in 2012 (though all the members have played together previously in other projects). Since then the band has already recorded an EP with Steve Albini and shared stages with such notables as Death From Above 1979, Greys, The Life And Times and Animal Lover.
In the coming weeks the band will be announcing winter tour dates.
