This November, Junior Astronomers heads to the studio to record their forthcoming LP and follow-up to their 2013 release, "Dead Nostalgia." To ease the wait, we're bringing you 2 new songs on this limited edition vinyl record. The record's title track, "FPM", dives into the controversial topic of North Carolina's "Bathroom Bill" and everyone's favorite NC Governor, Pat McCrory.
A message from the band:
"North Carolina has been all of our homes for most of our lives. We've seen it grow and seen it shrink due to poor decision making from our elected officials. When Charlotte as a city tried to move forward with laws to make all people comfortable with how they designate themselves we were met with opposition. That opposition has caused a divide, cost us credibility and money, and for what? For people to feel "safer"? We as a band believe in an all inclusive world and needed to write about this injustice. We just really want our state to be on the right side of history and as of now it isn't, but we can all make a change by going to vote and letting our voices be heard."
Don't forget to get out and vote!
