Astronoid - the astronomically-themed 'dream thrash' Boston five-piece twists through intense tremolo-picked galaxies, condensing soundscapes from a wide variety of artists – Alcest, Devin Townsend, Deafheaven, Dragonforce – to a single and very unique core. With two acclaimed EPs under their belt, the band was hard at work on their debut album for more than two years. Air considerably ups the ante on the band's previous material, bringing in a gloss of soaring major key atmospheres alongside constant, intense, galactic shredding – eliciting something so familiar yet so unique. 

The band's frontman Brett Boland says: "Influences for the album range from extreme metal to progressive pop music. Artists like Emperor official, Enslaved, and Ihsahn - drove my writing in a more metal direction, while groups like Mew, M83, and Cynic complemented the aggression with vocal harmonies and pop influenced song structure. This band was created to write music that I could not find elsewhere, that I was yearning to hear. I'm hopeful that others will share the excitement I have over the record. We have created something that encapsulates what I love most about music; something that is fast, progressive, and ethereal."
