Cancel The Astronauts here with a quick reminder/the stunning news that our much delayed album launch party is happening on Friday 30th November in Edinburgh, at The Electric Circus. You should come along. It’ll be ace.
We’ll have sets from the brilliant Letters and the fabulous Shooting Stansfield, the mighty Kid Canaveral will be DJing, we’ll do some songs, Matt will do some dancing, and there might even be cakes*.
Advance tickets are available at ticketweb (here) and seetickets (here), and also from real people at Ripping Records (South Bridge) and Tickets Scotland (Rose Street), though you should be able to pay on the door.
You’ll be able to buy our album at the gig, of course, but equipping yourself with a copy beforehand for super-make-better-singing-along is actively encouraged. Buy direct! from us (here) indirectly the usual internet downloady suspects, or from your favourite among the following lovely, discerning, supportive and in-need-of-support independent music retailers:
Grooves Records (Kirkwall)
Imperial Music (Inverness)
Love Music (Glasgow)
One Up Music (Aberdeen)
Unknown Pleasures (Edinburgh)
Action Records (Preston)
Crash Records (Leeds)
Sound It Out Records (Stockton on Tees)

Thanks for your time! Hope to see you all on the 30th!
Lots of love,

A fantastic album. And all the more impressive as a debut. 17 Seconds
An excellent record that should be in your Scottish music collection. GlasGOwest
A terrific pop album which illustrates just how many great songs these guys have to burn. Manic Pop Thrills
It would take a hard heart indeed to not find something to savour in guitar pop as brilliantly executed as this. This Is Fake DIY
The best Scottish album so far this year, and definitely one of the greatest albums by anyone in 2012. (9/10 Undersong)
A stirring debut album. (**** The List)
Lyrical shadows linger over the bright corners of hook-laden tunes, adding quirky depth to an infectious set of songs that trip over each other in their giddy haste to sprint out from the starting blocks. The Herald
