Not Scientists are a band from France that sings in English. Since 2012 they've released an album and an extended EP and toured extensively through Europe and North America supporting a who's who of international touring bands. It's impossible to define their sound by dropping a few names, but If you put Televisions’ vocals over the Strokes covering Fugazi and added a kilo of the Cure turned way up, you would get close. Their second album "Golden Staples" will be out on Kidnap Records and Rookie Records on April 13th.
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)
