BIO

ASTRAL TAURUS WAS FOUNDED BY MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST/SONGWRITER ANDRÉ KRETSCHMAR.
IN SUMMER 2016 HE RELEASED THE DEMO ALBUM ’ARISE’, A COLLECTION OF HIS PREVIOUSLY WRITTEN SONGS AS AN UNOFFICIAL RELEASE AND FIRST OUTPUT UNDER THE NAME ASTRAL TAURUS, GAINING HIM THE ATTENTION OF A NUMBER OF MUSIC BLOGS, INDIE RADIO STATIONS AND ONLINE MAGAZINES.

’ARISE’, EVEN THOUGH A DEMO ALBUM, WAS WRITTEN AND RECORDED AS A CONCEPT ALBUM THAT TELLS THE STORY OF A MAN RISING UP AGAINST THE SUBJUGATING NATURE OF THE WORLD HE LIVES IN.

TO SHAPE IT INTO AN AS LISTENABLE AUDIO EXPERIENCE AS A DEMO CAN BE, ’ARISE’ WAS COMPLIMENTED WITH DETAILED ARRANGEMENTS, A PORTION OF THE SPEECH „ADDRESS TO THE NATION ON THE INVASION OF IRAQ“ BY GEORGE BUSH AS WELL AS ORIGINAL VOICE WORK BY LISA L. WILEY, SPECIFICALLY RECORDED FOR THIS ALBUM.

ON SEPTEMBER 22ND 2017 ASTRAL TAURUS RELEASED THEIR FIRST OFFICIAL SINGLE ’SUPERCLUSTER’, ANNOUNCING THE RELEASE OF ’MONOLITH’: THE DEBUT EP BY ASTRAL TAURUS WHICH WAS RELEASED ON FRIDAY THE 13TH OF OCTOBER THROUGH PERSONAL SPACE RECORDS.

ON OCTOBER 26TH 2018 THE BAND RELEASED THEIR FIRST MUSIC VIDEO AND THEIR BRAND NEW SONG ‚NEVER AGAIN‘.
