Having both inspired and scored the 150th episode of FOX’s American Dad, releasing a trilogy of singles throughout the summer/fall, Louisville’s experimental-psych-rock duo Wax Fang are announcing a release date for their journey to the far reaches of outer space… THE ASTRONAUT.
A space-rock opera in three movements concerning the fate of a lone space traveler who is separated from his vessel, swallowed by a black hole and transformed into a celestial super being, THE ASTRONAUT is an ode to the wonder, the majesty, and the horror of the universe.
On January 28, the world will finally hear the scope and magnitude of this contemporary take on space travel. Being released through Wax Fang’s Don’t Panic Records, THE ASTRONAUT will be available at all digital outlets, with vinyl LP and CD available exclusively through waxfang.com.
