Cancel the Astronauts live, variously, in Edinburgh and Markinch, and if you asked us which one we prefer, we’d probably say Markinch.
We played our first gig in May 2007, and hopefully we haven’t played our last one yet.
In 2009 we released our debut EP called ‘I Am the President of Your Fanclub (And Last Night I Followed You Home). In 2010 we released our second EP called Funny For A Girl. In 2011 we played T in the Park (they haven’t asked us back for 2012 – apparently The Stone Roses reformed and got our slot instead) and released our debut single Seven Vices. This year we’ve released our second single Intervention. We’re not sure what we did in 2008.
Some notable things that we’ve done:
1. Been a theme tune to a TV show called Being Victor on STV.
2. Played a live BBC Radio session for Vic Galloway.
3. Supported Frightened Rabbit, Marina and the Diamonds and The Phantom Band.
Our debut album, Animal Love Match, will be released 17/09/2012
