Following their support slot on the Enter Shikari arena tour in November last year, Astroid Boys headed out onto their headline tour with multiple sold-out shows and their penultimate date at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms certainly didn’t disappoint.
With support from NorthaZe, Full Contact and Manga that got the crowd rowdy and excited for their set, despite it being contrasted in genre from hardcore to hip-hop, it worked well when it came to the Welsh lads to take the stage. Despite it being promotion for their highly anticipated LP Broke, the group didn’t forget their roots by playing a number of songs from their second EP CF10 such as ‘Posted’ and ‘Wake Up’. They also ended their set with songs from their first EP Bacon Dreams by playing ‘Minging’ and ‘Dusted’ which had the crowd opening up and showing Astroid Boys exactly why it was a wise idea to play Nottingham on this tour.
The energy and enthusiasm that Astroid Boys brought and consisted with throughout the entirety of the set despite it being the last proves that they’re not a band planning to go down without a fight and have so much more to prove and grow in the industry as a band. If you have been following the band from the start, you can see clearly that they’re getting better and better as the years have gone on.
You can catch Astroid boys at Cardiff University on March 30 at their biggest headline show yet, but also at Slam Dunk Festival across the May Bank Holiday Weekend.
