Hi-Speed rockabilly – straight, honest and dangerous!
Behind Astrolites there are no secrets; it’s pure and honest rock ‘n’ roll. Astrolites live what they preach – out to their fingertips. With a passion for hot rods, cool motorcycles and awesome music, they know what they are talking about and can supply it. It is explosive, well played and more authentic than this, it’s not many bands in this genre that can deliver. At an Astrolites live performances can not help but draw a smile or to be carried away by the intense soundbites.
Since their debut “Hard Luck” in 2007, they have toured widely in most parts of Europe. The music has been heard on soundtracks and a variety of compilations, most recently the acclaimed rockabilly tribute sampler “DANCING ON YOUR GRAVES” to the Hellacopters.
Astrolites have taken their influences from be-bop, swing, rockabilly, surf and punk. All the ingredients are mixed with the bands intense live prominence to their own style which they call “Hi-Speed rockabilly”.
“Play For Keeps” prove their capacity to do so.
The trio has shared the stage with such International acts Caravans, Slim Jim Phantom, Darrel Higham, Devil Doll, Mad Sin, Go Getters, and felt the Baseballs on the pulse.
