London based, politically charged, alternative rock three-piece, Calling All Astronauts, will release their third single “What’s So Good About?” on December 2, 2012. Despite being totally DIY they have been creating quite a stir. So far, in their brief career they have opened for A Place To Bury Strangers, Roger Daltrey, Pop Will Eat Itself and Echo and The Bunnymen, as well as selling out Alan Magee’s “Death2Disco” in their own right. Calling All Astronauts has already been confirmed for major festivals in 2013. Their two previous singles, “Someone Like You” and “Winter Of Discontent” received plays on countless radio stations worldwide including BBC6 Music, RTE, Q Radio and Amazing Radio, which has seen them joining far more established acts by remaining on rotation on many alternative rock stations. Fourculture featured Calling All Astronauts in its launch issue: check out the feature here.
