2017 got off to a flying start for Astroid Boys, releasing new track Foreigners which is currently sitting at over 150,000 views on YouTube and things are looking to get even better as today Astroid Boys announce a string of UK live dates starting in April!
After gaining a big following on the underground scene since forming in 2012, rising rock/grime collective Astroid Boys, who hail from Cardiff’s CF10 area code, have partnered with Music for Nations (Sony) as the label’s first signing since being recently re-launched.
Comprising Traxx (MC), Benji (MC), DJ Comfort (DJ), Dellux (producer) and Big H (drums), Astroid Boys have created something new and exciting, which was the intention when co-frontman Traxx started the band in 2012, wanting to merge his past as a punk kid with his transition into grime in his late teens.
With the band sitting comfortably between grime and punk/hardcore, their sound fuses together multiple sub-cultures and perspectives—a growth that defines them less as a band and more as a voice for the youth. Not many artists can say they’ve supported Trash Talk and Deez Nuts, as well as Public Enemy, Grandmaster Flash, Skepta and Stormzy, but Astroid Boys have taken their live show to the urban and metal scenes across the UK. Along with an impressive list of tour supports under their belt, they’ve played at Reading & Leeds Festival, Download Festival and T in the Park, as well as festivals in mainland Europe, including Block Party Festival and With Full Force Festival in Germany.
28th April – Hit The North Festival, Newcastle
2nd May – Music Hall, Ramsgate
3rd May – The Horn, St Albans
4th May – Empire, Coventry
5th May – Vintage Bar, Doncaster
6th May – Parish, Huddersfield

A limited run of original pink 'Made In Bricks' vinyl will be available on the tour.
Kate on 'Made Of Bricks':-
"I am so excited to celebrate my 10 year anniversary of Made of Bricks. This was a life changing record for me. At the time of making it I had no idea what to expect, what making a record even was, and how much this would open up a world of art and music to me. After a decade of creating, recording, performing and living I feel more confident about my abilities than ever and I look forward to approaching these performances from where I am today. I can’t wait to share this with fans old and new, I’ve honed my performance skills and this will bring new life to old material, mixing a sense of nostalgia with a shiny bright future.
I’m so proud of how far I have come and I actually feel like I have a stronger connection to the songs now than I did then. I’m more in tune with myself and I think that translates through my performance. I also feel like this album keeps me connected to why I create music. It's an important reminder to me to stay creative, open, imaginative, to have a sense of fun and remember the London streets I grew up in. It's amazing to be fortunate enough to have a career as an artist. So hashtag blessed. I’m as ever grateful to my beautiful fans!! And I’m excited to invite them to something extra special this summer!"
