Not many artists can say they’ve supported Trashtalk and Deez Nuts, as well as Public Enemy and Skepta. Cardiff’s Astroid Boys have crafted not only a sound, but a movement that merges the cultures of punk, hardcore and grime, channeling their DIY ethos and aggression. From self-producing their tracks and videos to distributing their own DIY merch, the band have shown that they aren’t afraid of taking matters into their own hands to maintain their creative control and integrity – even creating their own documentary Straight Outta CF10 in homage to their area and the band’s rise.  

 

Started in 2012 by co-frontman Traxx, the intention was to create something new and exciting that merged his past as a punk kid with his transition into grime in his late teens. Calling upon an old friend in DJ Comfort, Traxx was able to get the project off the ground with small hip-hop shows around Cardiff. DJ Dellux was already making a name for himself in Cardiff, having his own youth centre radio show at the age of 14, producing beats, and agreed to join Astroid Boys after hearing about the band’s direction and goals. Their hardcore hustling lead to them playing raves around Cardiff, where they frequently performed alongside ‘rival’ MC Benji. It become apparent that Traxx and Benji worked well together, creating their trademark co-frontman set-up. Long-time friend – and metal fan - Harry was recruited to provide live drums, and since then the gang has had an ever-extending crew, both live and in the studio.

 

With members from polar opposite musical backgrounds they have taken their high-energy show from their CF10 home to the urban and metal scenes of the UK and Europe. Along with an impressive list of tour supports under their belt (Stormzy, Grandmaster Flash and Terror to name just 3), Astroid Boys have built a reputation for impressive festival performances, destroying tents at Reading & Leeds Festival, Download Festival and T in the Park, as well as festivals in mainland Europe, including Block Party Festival (Germany) and With Full Force Festival (Germany). Crushing live drums and guitar paired with their aggressive live vocals and trademark sleek production are guaranteed to attract the attention of hardcore, punk and grime crowds alike, and ensure an unforgettably dynamic live event.

 

Astroid Boys have joined Music For Nations, chosen to be the flagship band for the label’s re-launch. Their Eps ‘Bacon Dream’ and ‘CF10’ have been re-released on clear vinyl, with their debut full-length album following later 2017 and a busy summer festival schedule in both the UK and mainland Europe
