Astrotheque are a Digital Dream Pop band FROM THE FUTURE of Austin, TX founded in 2020. They have traveled back to NOW from 2023 to change the course of music history. They combine JDub's soulful "Sting meets Seal" vocals, spiraling "Edge-esque" guitar riffs with John Looke's "Daft Punk-like" grinding synth bass and sequencing, and Dave Terry's "Post Copeland" drumming. Their songs are otherworldly and fun, their fans wild and obsessive, and their live performances a soulful and unforgettable dance party.

"The intense combination is a battle, one from which the audience walks away victorious."
"Quiet insistence that unveils its charms slowly and pays off handsomely."

Debut album: Return to Form OUT NOW
November 15, 2023
Astrotheque are ecstatic to release Return to Form, produced by Claudio Ramirez and JDub, released on Spyjet Zero Records, and now available on Itunes and all online retailers! The album tracks the journey of JDub through innocence lost, the divorce of a soulmate, the construction and escape of a robot intended for human happiness, and a psychopathic demi-god playing shakespeare with people's lives. Prevalent is a sort of tension supported by moments of grace. The album culminates with a question for its listener:
"On and on and on they wonder
Is this the year?
On and on and on we love your
Return to Form."
"The first album is really just a splash of paint revealing a corner of the ATQ universe. The TT3000 will return for more adventures in our coming records, and you will see other recurring characters and themes as well. Certainly prevalent will be the shamanic rite of promoting limitlessness, openness, freedom, love and social consciousness."
The album also includes numerous NASA space-mission samples used with expressed and official NASA consent. Unfortunately, we had to use modern NASA samples from 2018, because in 2023, NASA no longer exists, and even to use information from the future would have created a conundrum in space-time.
