Astroid Boys To Enter Hiatus Following January Shows

Monday, 07 January 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Astroid Boys have announced an indefinite hiatus.  

The Cardiff genre-mashing collective, who released 'Broke' in 2017, will begin the break following the completion of their upcoming headline shows this month. 

Check out the full statement from vocalist Benji Kendell below:

"Hi, Benji here. I’d like to first apologise for the confusion over the past few months regarding AB. Some of the key members have indeed left the band and there will be a hiatus from the end of this tour. I’ve not been handling the changes very well and I guess my mental health hit the ground. I said some things and posted some things that left people confused and angry but here is what I’d like to say at this point. 
I was pissed that the boys didn’t want to make any more AB music. I wanted to keep AB going and was willing to do anything to make that happen. I made a mistake. I should have left with the others and saved the AB legacy but instead I booked more shows and let myself fall into a pit of depression. I’ve had a good few weeks over Christmas and new year and I’m ready to smash these last few shows. 
I guess what I’m saying is that after this tour and the 2 local shows that have been agreed, I won’t be playing any more AB shows or making any AB inspired music. It’s done! So if u want one more chance to vibe out to ‘posted’ ‘dusted’ ‘dirt’ ‘minging’ etc etc.. please buy tickets and help me say goodbye to the most exciting thing that I have ever been a part of..

Dates are as follows, sorry to those that I let down xx

January 15th - Brighton
