Hi, we’re the band, The Astronomer, from Chicago.

We’ve just finished recording and remixing our latest record ‘You Could Be Something When You Disappear’ with Mark Greenburg at the Wilco loft studios.

Now we’re getting ready to master the record with Blaise Barton at JoyRide studios, and press 500 vinyl records!

Here’s where you can help us with your  support!

Everyone who contributes $5 will receive a free download of covers EP done just for this campaign. It includes some of our favorite songs by New Order, Townes Van Zandt, Brian Eno, Big Star and The Muppets.

We’ll also be offering additional levels of donation incentives, including a downloadable version of ‘You Could Be Something When You Disappear’, pre-orders of the vinyl version, guitar or songwriting lessons with Charles, and demo recording sessions at his studio.

We hope you can help us with your support!

Thanks so much!

Risks and challenges

The Astronomer is confident that with your support we will achieve our goals swiftly and successfully. With decades of combined music experience – we know this goal is obtainable and we value your trust in us. Hours of songwriting and recording have resulted in the best The Astronomer album to date. Help us take the final production steps and get this album mastered!
