Bio


Whether it's playing for two people, or for two hundred people, Atlas and the Astronaut leaves everything on stage with each performance. Emerging as one of the must-see bands in the Portland area, Atlas and the Astronaut composes unabashedly selfish post-rock songs with a tinge of punk rock attitude. 

Their song structure lends itself to numerous genres, and they have opened for a variety of nationally touring bands ranging from art-pop missionaries, Eternal Summers, to the raucous hardcore of Fall City Fall

In 2012, Atlas and the Astronaut released their first self-titled EP, and they're currently scheduled to release their first full length in Summer 2014 on DRD Records

The upcoming album, Tiny Artifacts, follows the story of Pixl: A girl with the burden of being the world's only savior, and the slayer of the unyielding Sun Beast. Guitarist Matt LeMieux compiles a tapestry of leads and melodies to create a thoughtful musical journey from beginning to end, while bassist Casey Aspengren and drummer Lucas Goughnour bolster the album with a solid rhythm section that moves the story forward via a dense, layered wall of noise. Singer and storyteller Beau Rosser's lyrics delve into the emotional ideas of loss, love, betrayal, and misplaced heroisms, while not only building a puzzle of Pixl's psyche, but the band's as well.

Atlas and the Astronaut is currently playing shows in and around the Portland, OR area and is planning a west coast tour in the near future.
