Australian heavy sludge/grunge duo Astrodeath release a music video for the new single »Red Weed« taken from their upcoming sophomore album »Vol. 2«

Sydney, Australia based heavy sludge/grunge duo Astrodeath has released a music video for the new single »Red Weed« taken from their upcoming sophomore album, »Vol. 2«, out on February 24th, 2023 via Tuff Cuff Records / Black Farm Records.

Video by John Flaws at Flawless Media.

Astrodeath launched their new video for the single »Red Weed« into the stratosphere! »Red Weed« contains electrifying live footage of their recent jaunt to the Northern Territory for Blacken Open Air Festival and their headlining set at Thrashville Festival in NSW. This mesmerising dance at the edge of oblivion is at once seductive and daunting: long-forgotten melodies and rhythms elicit ancient memories from our ancestral unconscious, awakening us on a deep sense-level to the frantic message of warning the song carries within.

Tim from the band comments: “We’re stoked to be drop kicking our latest offering – »Red Weed«, the fourth single off our new record »Vol. 2«! This video was made by John Flaws from footage of our sets at Thrashville and Blacken Open Air and some candid footage of us soaking up the magic that is Mparntwe.”

“We’ve had some wild experiences traveling Australia this year playing bigger shows, with legendary bands, in crazy places. We’re so grateful to be able to do what we love. Thanks for all the headbangs and big ups to all the legends that have joined us for stage parties this year. Much more to come on the »Red Weed« tour!”

Conjuring a mountainous sound borne of madness and revelation, Astrodeath report back from the precipice, bringing us haunting visions of a blind and indifferent universe and the hideous, mindless creations that lie in wait, insatiable in their desire to dominate and devour. Hailing from Cadigal Land in the Eora Nation (otherwise known as Sydney), singer/guitarist Tim Lancken and drummer Yoshi Hausler weave an otherwordly musical alchemy that belies their earthly origins and underpins the ritualistic hypnosis of Astrodeath’s furious and intimidating sound, a titanic reverberation that far exceeds the sum of its twin parts.

Since 2018, Astrodeath have brought this musical mesmerism to audiences all across Australia, showing an uncanny ability to fit alongside bands from the stoner/doom, punk, hard rock and extreme metal scenes, effortlessly floating between genres. Their formidable work ethic has seen them sharing the stage with such luminaries as 1000 Mods, Nick Oliveri (QOTSA), Svetlanas, Beastwars, Revocation, The Neptune Power Federation, Lo!, and Black Rheno.

Astrodeath’s sophomore album »Vol. 2« builds on the mythic lore and hypnotising sonic spells infamously cast on their debut self-titled album. Having recently signed to Young Management, Astrodeath will be releasing »Vol. 2« digitally through Blood Blast Records and physically through Tuff Cuff Records in Australia and Black Farm Records overseas.
