Hip-hop artist Astronautalis signs to SideOneDummy Records
Astronautalis, real name Andy Bothwell, has a long history within the punk rock community. The artist has worked with artists like Chuck Ragan and Andrew Jackson Jihad in the past, and wears his punk influence on his sleeve in his music.
“These days, if a record label can stay in business for 20 years, it is down right impressive,” Bothwell says. “But a label that can stay in business for 20 years, staying true to their indie roots, riding for DIY weirdos like me, all while being impossibly nice people? That is a Christmas fucking miracle!”
The new Astronautalis record will see a release in 2016.
