ASTPAI
ASTPAI
Blasting out of a dirty basement’s rehearsal room there comes the straight forward punkrock sound of Austria’s very own ASTPAI. Think of Strike Anywhere meets AC/DC, never lacking a sense in melody and sing-a-longs. Their 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.

ASTPAI has been a consistently touring band for five years now, including destinations such as Western-, Central-, and Eastern Europe as well as the USA, Canada and Russia.

In a total of ten years the band has shared stages with numerous international acts like Anti-Flag, Flogging Molly, Leftöver Crack, Fucked Up, Paint It Black, The Flatliners, Dead To Me, A Wilhelm Scream, The Casting Out (Ex-Boysetsfire), and many more.

ASTPAI love to be busy and they’re busy with what they love. (neustadtpunk.net)

What The Press Have Said: ͚...the promise of Neck Deep, if Neck Deep had a sax (KKKK)...͛– Kerrang ͚
...takes the best parts of Less Than Jake and The Wonder Years to make a truly brilliant record (8/10)...͛– Rock Sound Magazine

London-based punk rock quintet, GHOULS, are striding into 2017 with their new 12 track album, 'RUN' set for release on 5th May 2017 via 1471 Records.

Inspired by true stories from the daily grind of real life and the struggles faced in the modern day, 'RUN' encapsulates the challenges, thought processes and feelings of a group of young men coming of age.

A graduation record in many ways, it brings an updated, mature sound to the table from GHOULS. 'RUN' was recorded in Spring 2016 by Dan Lucas at Anchor Baby Recording Company and mastered by Oli Morgan at Fluid Mastering.

Coming from a range of different musical backgrounds, the band has never bowed down to specific genre restrictions or a scene of any sort- they simply pride themselves on making original, stand-out music that gives them the possibility to tour the world.

"We arent bothered where were placed or how you categorize us as a band, only that you notice that were unique and offer something for those who stand out and feel they are different from the rest of the crowd." says frontman Benedict Goold.

GHOULS pride themselves on being an inclusive family. As individuals they never found themselves fitting into particular scenes or crowds, instead creating their own gang of misfits. "We are a family that extends wider than the 5 band members of the band; from the people who come to our shows, listen to our songs, to the people who have driven us around, put us up, fed us, gave us a home for a few hours - we're all family. Ghouls stand for the people who dont fit in, and perhaps dont want to fit in, the people that just want to be themselves."

GHOULS have cemented themselves as mainstays on the UK and European circuit, where their relentless touring ethic has seen them hit every corner of the continent, including leading festivals, such as 2000Trees, Jera On Air, The Secret Garden Party, Mighty Sounds, Hit The Deck and more. 2016 saw more milestones in the bands plans for world domination; a two-week tour of the USA, including an appearance at THE FEST in Gainesville, Florida, and a massive Brixton Academy show as part of the Fireball Fuelling The Fire Tour.

The GHOULS journey started in 2013 and has been backed up by a pair of impressive releases to date. The release of debut album 'Ten Thousand Words On' saw Ghouls sell-out The Monarch in Camden, attended by a raft of fans, including Frank Turner, who continues to speak of his admiration for the promising young act.

Everything that the band has achieved today has been through DIY means and testament to the bands sheer determination to make things work. "If you want something or you want to do something, dont wait for it to happen, go and make it happen, even if you make mistakes continues, Benedict GooldWe have found family and friends in people all across the world all because we decided we just wanted to. We never waited for anyone to help us make those things happen, and yes weve made and learnt from mistakes but thats how you grow –its what makes life exciting. Go out and do it. Whatever it is. If you need to train for it, then what are you waiting for? Enter the race and train. Take risks. Find the means, whatever it might take, and just go do. Life isnt forever."
