Texan Born, Florida raised and Minneapolis based, alternative hip hop artist Astronautalis is headed to Australia.

Recently announced to play on The Smith Street Band’s Pool House Party Astronautalis has added a bunch of Australian dates which will also see him visit Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast for headline shows and join The Smith Street Band in Wollongong.

Previously in Australia to tour with Tegan and Sara as well as playing at Tasmania’s epic Dark Mofo, this will be Astronautalis’ third trip to the country.

Having started in music over 20 years ago as a battle rapper, Astronautalis’ roots are planted firmly in hip hop. However, the sounds and styles throughout his discography are an animal not so easily caged. At any point, Astronautalis touches upon shoegaze-laced indie rock, pulsating electronic, swampy Southern-influenced blues, and more. He’s worked with Grammy Award-winning producer John Congleton (Modest Mouse, Bill Callahan, St. Vincent), Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Tegan Quin (Tegan & Sara), members of The Riverboat Gamblers, P.O.S. (Rhymesayers) and more to help craft his undeniably unique style.

Astronautalis’ latest release Cut The Body Loose may seem like his most aggressive album to date, to call it angry or pessimistic would be to miss the point. Named for an aspect of a traditional New Orleans jazz funeral when the music guides grievers from heavy, insurmountable suffering to a full-on raucous celebration in the streets, Cut The Body Loose is the sonic equivalent of that same liberating process
