Bad Astronaut Biography (Wikipedia)

Bad Astronaut is an American indie/alternative rock band founded in 2000 by Joey Cape, singer from Lagwagon. In Bad Astronaut, Joey Cape explores a style of alternative rock, with lyrics often about deep and intricate personal matters.

The band released its debut album, "Acrophobe" in 2001, followed by Houston: We Have a Drinking Problem in 2002 on "Honest Don's Records." The band released its third and final album, Twelve Small Steps, One Giant Disappointment on November 14, 2006 on Fat Wreck Chords. Upon the album's release, Joey Cape announced, "without Derrick, there is no Bad Astronaut" on the band's Myspace page, deciding the resulting record would be the last for Bad Astronaut. (Drummer Derrick Plourde committed suicide in March 2005.) Joey Cape expressed plans on releasing a b-sides album sometime in the future. Bad Astronaut reformed to play their first ever live shows in July 2010. They played 4 shows in California, with Mike Hale of In the Red and Joey Cape doing a solo act as the openers. On December 2, 2016 Fat Wreck Chords announced that Erik Hertzog died.
