Astroid Boys Documentary Chronicles Singers Imprisonment & Release

They’ve got a bit of a reputation for starting raucous parties and front man Benji is no stranger to the long arm of the law, but what happened to genre defying Cardiff collective Astroid Boys when their lead singer was sent down?

In this, the first of four planned episodes across the ‘Straight Outta Cardiff’ series, the band, having recently reunited with their co-front man, talk openly for the first time about Benji’s incarceration, the situation surrounding his trial and the build up to his enforced time away from the band.

Due to a curfew enforced on Benji, all shows on their upcoming December tour will be matinee performances with doors opening at 12pm.

Despite their macho posturing, this is a touching look at the dreams and aspirations of a group of friends who kept the flame burning for one of their own in his absence, check out the first episode here:

December 2014
6th Southampton, Joiners
7th Manchester, Sound Control
13th London, The Old Blue Last
