Burnside Album Details

Man or Astro-Man?, Defcon 5...4...3...2...1

Man or Astro-Man? have returned to earth for the human masses and after years of hibernation they are unveiling their finest recorded work to date. Nearly 12 years since the band last released their intergalactic sonic wave forms, the new album, Defcon 5...4...3...2...1 is here with a striking validity that the band is unquestionably as tuneful and energetic as ever.

Defcon is here and with imminent purpose. Recorded with longtime Astro copilot, Steve Albini, this album finds the band bringing their unique powerful style of Science Friction back to humanity in supreme form. It seems Man or Astro-Man? haven’t missed a beat. Put on your space helmet and strap in. The countdown begins now…
