Bastia, France based stoner/doom metal trio Alconaut drops live video for »Ascending I: The Departure« recorded at Connexion Live in Toulouse on May 20th, 2023.

»Ascending I: The Departure« is taken from the band’s second album, »Endless Skies«, released on May 12th, 2023. Available now on CD and can be streamed on all major digital platforms.

Alconaut formed in 2016 in Bastia, Corsica by Georges Agostini on vocals and guitars, Kevin Albertini on bass, and Antoine-Joseph Marini on drums.

The band started playing at that time covers which were generally in the stoner such as Sleep, Fu Manchu, The Sword, Mars Red Sky etc… After making some concerts, the group wanted to go further and began to compose and bring everyone’s influences together to realize their first album entitled »Sand Turns To Tides«, the trio extends a relatively inspired universe of everything in the stoner in general, thanks to the compositions, illustrations and design produced by one of the band’s members.

Alconaut acquires complete and immersive imagery that allows the listener to find a universe fantastic, we will find colossal mastodons hammering the dunes of a desert transported by a sand whale or a furious biker crossing with speed mountains of this world but a theme that is set in front is that of the Alconaut (found in the song »Space Controller«) which is a space explorer searching the universe every alcoholic drink that exists.

Alconaut is:
Georges Agostini – Guitar / Vocals
Kevin Albertini – Bass
Antoine-Joseph Marini – Drums
