Man or Astro-man?

As discussed, Man or Astro-man? will be on the road with Jacuzzi Boys as part of a set of US dates that will take them from coast-to-coast, including stops at Austin Psych Fest and in NYC twice for a sold-out Mercury Lounge on June 20 and Brooklyn Bowl on June 21 (tickets). Since that posting, band have expanded their tour and all dates are listed below.

More excitingly, it turns out the tour is in support of their first new album in 12 years! The new album, Defcon 5...4...3...2...1, will be out May 21 via Vessels / Chunklet. You can stream "Disintegrate" from it and check out LP art and tracklisting, along with their updated tour schedule, below.

So amped for both NYC gigs - Kind of bummed they are not playing Maxwell's. Seemed years ago they would play there all the time.

I can't wait for these shows. One of the all time great live bands.

I'm glad they're not playing Maxwell's, and that less bands I want to see these days are playing Maxwell's in general. Unless you live in Jersey and have a car, Maxwell's is a pain in the ass to commute to, and especially get home from.
