Our Blog: Poems, Thoughts, and Collected Mumblings

New alternative music from Seattle is here. Astral Jukebox is about feeling. It’s about being in the moment. It is a summer festival. It’s a favorite corner bar. It is rock with that distinctive Seattle edge that makes you turn up the volume. With Astral Jukebox, your neighbors will be listening to great music, whether they want to or not. Get ready to ride, rock, and roll. Seattle summer shows will start soon. We will announce tour dates and Seattle block party dates here as soon as they are available. We have been hard at work on our first alternative album at London Bridge Studios. Now, it is time to get out there and rejoin the post-pandemic world in 2022 with new rock. You can keep up with us on Instagram directly from the website. You can now listen to our new album with exclusive access here.

New Music February, 2022

Check out more detail on the new alternative album, A Beautiful Catastrophe, as well as some of the fun we had at London Bridge Studios. We leveraged the best of the Seattle sound with London Bridge Studios to stay true to alternative music while making it our own. We are also in the midst of adding to our music repertoire in advance of our fall tour. Interested in all of our mischief and mayhem? We are launching a new fans-only section in February for new music and exclusive access to gear and more. You can get to know the band and lead chaos-maker, Brett Heron. Check out exclusive tracks and backstage photos in our exclusive Astral Jukebox blog, Poems, Thoughts, and Collected Mumblings.
