Inspired by new wave and 70's punk, the third full-length from the world's bravest space band has just landed. A call to arms to defenders of science and honor across the galaxy, The Phenomenauts new album, For All Mankind deals with the serious implications of science fiction, science fact, and offers new perspectives on Earth life as we know it. The album folds out to form a space ship and comes with a die-cast metal Phenomenauts pin.
In an effort to spread this discovery of Science and Honor throughout the galaxy, The Phenomenauts will be orbiting the planet with comrades The A.K.A.'s and Maldroid on the For All Mankind Tour, and if the band's recent sold out headlining CD release show at Slims in San Francisco is any indication, the upcoming US tour dates (listed below) will undoubtedly blow the roof off.
Early transmissions into space have been positively received, with Lou Brutus of XM Satellite Radio saying "Be sure to pick up the disc, which features soon to be classics as 'Man Alone' and 'Make A Circuit with Me,' currently the Number One most requested song on Fungus 53." Terrestrial broadcasts have also been a success, with For All Mankind debuting on CMJ's charts this week as the #16 most added album.
The Phenomenauts' intergalactic pummeling punk rock assault, and over the top, interstellar live shows, have helped create a massive cult following and buzz around the universe and appearances on the likes of the G4 TV, the Sci-Fi Channel, the Discovery Channel, Myspace.com artist profiles, and much more.
To date, The Phenomenauts have toured the world w/ the likes of The Slackers, Aquabats, Demented Are Go, The Epoxies, the mighty Vans Warped Tour, and have trekked the states on numerous headlining tours. This year will prove to be most exciting for The Phenomanauts as they start to leak news of the exciting things they have in store for humanity, including upcoming music videos by the AstroBase (Venture Brothers), massive US tourdates, and more that has yet to be revealed.
Be prepared as The Phenomenauts help keep us focused and guide us through the turbulent waters of what the future might become. If we follow their lead, things might turn out alright.
