Blasting out of a dirty basement's rehearsal room there comes the straight forward punkrock sound of austria's very own ASTPAI. think of paint it black meets kid dynamite meets none more black, never lacking a sense in melody and sing-a-longs. this heavy rocking hardcore/punk sound comes along with strong political views and offers some new ideas without just presenting shallow paroles and drained statements. this young band managed to release 3 full length releases in the past and is now holding their strongest release to date in hands called corruption concealed (under deceptive slogans), released by rise or rust records for austria, fond of life records for the rest of europe and jump start records for the us. after a busy year of 2008 including a 5 weeks tour along the east coast of the usa and a 3 week tour throughout western european parts and the uk, ASTPAI just put out their latest recordings as one half of a split-cd-release (digipak!) with uk's very own attack! vipers! from portsmouth through we heart records for the uk and laserlife records for parts of the european mainland. further distribution in progress! recordings for a 3rd full length album are scheduled for early 2009 as well as more touring both east- and westwards.
