11.11.2017 - Hey everyone. Come and visit our daughter Emmeline's YouTube channel, it's full of her videos. It's called Sunlight Moon Dash - you can visit it at this link. Enjoy! Best, Níl Patrik Zolymon / Krs Kaffir Junzilan (Young Astronauts Club).
11.10.2017 - Great news...we are back in the studio in Dublin, Ireland @ our private studio, Lab X. We intend to really get to finishing up the album "Stadia" which we have been writing and developing in various other locations. The album is probably only about half finished, so there are no promises on a finishing time, but we are working diligently. Keep checking here for news and developments on the album and other things here. Also, we have started releasing our solo catalogs on various major downloading and streaming sites, so check for ZOLYMON and JUNZILAN releases wherever you prefer to listen to music. Best, Níl Patrik Zolymon / Krs Kaffir Junzilan (Young Astronauts Club).
10.30.2017 - We don't usually promote other people's albums for them, but this one deserves to be heard...the new Jeremy Enigk album, "Ghosts". We were some of the first people to hear it, ever, and it is a true masterpiece from a musician who is still criminally overlooked. Hopefully he will make many more albums in years to come. Check it out on Spotify at this link. Best, Níl Patrik Zolymon / Krs Kaffir Junzilan (Young Astronauts Club).
10.25.2017 - "Music From The End Of The World", a 25-track collection of Young Astronauts Club music, is now available on Spotify. Check it out at this link. Best, Níl Patrik Zolymon / Krs Kaffir Junzilan (Young Astronauts Club).
10.10.2017 - Today, we are officially announcing a giant move forward for us. We have begun work on our album, "Stadia". This is a concept we have had floating around in the backs of our minds for some time now and have wanted to begin work on when the opportunity arose. The time is now. We are in the studio with zero live performance commitments coming up, so we are going to focus all of our energies on the studio aspect of this project. We will be simultaneously producing at least a double album AND a film while we are making the album. So here we go. A blank canvas to fill. We are off to the store for a new hard drive. News soon! Best, Níl Patrik Zolymon / Krs Kaffir Junzilan (Young Astronauts Club).
10.01.2017 - We will be hard at work on new music recordings for the foreseeable future. Winter is coming and there is no better time to avoid playing live (believe us, we know what it's like to load in your own gear to play a gig in the middle of a snowstorm for three people in North America). Look out for new songs soon. Best, Young Astronauts Club.
09.30.2017 - Well, it looks like we can be based in the U.S.A. again. Thanks, Donald Trump, for reducing the crushing taxes that were killing our business, NOTACORP, and preventing us from being legally based in our home country for the last five years. Maybe now we can move our operations fully back home! Best, Young Astronauts Club.

09.03.2017 - Our studio, Rialta, in Texas, we have just found out, was slightly damaged by the recent hurricane Harvey. If you want to help us get some repairs done, feel free to make a contribution via the 'donate' section. We were more fortunate than others, though, since our studio is in the western part of the state. If you can give to a reputable charity to help those in greater need, then please, do also. Best, Young Astronauts Club.
09.02.2017 - We are shopping for records and other cool things in Dublin today. Found some really great stuff - like some rare comic books, some Bauhaus 45s and some really hard-to-find classical music cassette releases from Germany. Some interesting stuff on these recordings, maybe some of it will end up being sampled for upcoming tracks. Best, Young Astronauts Club.
09.01.2017 - Go check out the movie 'Detroit' by Kathryn Bigelow. We did, and it's great. If you want to understand more about the recent history of race relations in America, this is a good place to start. Best, Young Astronauts Club.

Best, Young Astronauts Club.
08.21.2017 - The 1997 Young Astronauts Club e.p. "Turn On The Lights", which was a huge hit all over the world - before the days of sharing everything on the internet - anyone else remember those? - is now available to listen to - you guessed it - on the internet - for the first time ever. Keep in mind this music was released before a lot of stuff you currently already know and enjoy, and was probably hugely influential upon the work of a lot of artists that came later on (if not downright copied - ahem, Audioslave, Nine Inch Nails and company). But yeah, since we were only an up-and-coming independent band back then, everyone thinks the copycat corporate old guys with bigger budgets came up with this stuff. But we're digressing. Check it at this link, and enjoy. You be the judge of originality. Personally, we were into Codeine, Karate, The Cure, Dinosaur Jr., The Velvet Underground, Tortoise and Galaxie 500 at the time. Heavily. So props to all of those. Best, Young Astronauts Club.
08.20.2017 - Listening to a lot of music today - Shudder To Think, Soundgarden, The Spacelords, Mothership, Truckfighters, Geezer, Black Mirrors, Spaceslug, Six Sigma, Comacozer, Los Natas, The Great Machine, Forming The Void, Naam, Libido Fuzz, Kyuss, Oelkman, Weedpecker, Ape Machine, West Grave, Miss Lava, Kozmotron, Fuzz Aldrin and more. Oh yeah. Best, Young Astronauts Club.

08.07.2017 - Getting a lot of work done on new tracks...it's coming together pretty quickly. No promises of any new music any time soon though, we are going to take our time and really do this one even better than the last! Best, Young Astronauts Club.

08.02.2017 - Recording today @ Lab X Studios in Dublin. We will let you know how that works out! Best, Young Astronauts Club.
08.01.2017 - As of today, we're officially stepping off the airplane and re-locating to London and Dublin for a while - to record our next album. We figure we've spent so much time in Britain and Ireland lately, that we might as well just move here for a while and see what it's like. On board will be Níl Patrik Zolymon and Krs Kaffir Junzilan - and we will be inviting a slew of guest musicians to make appearances. We've done recording in both cities previously, but never started a full album from scratch here. This should prove to be an interesting experiment, and we're all really looking forward to how it turns out. Hopefully we will make it back to the U.S. for some parts of the album or mixing. We'll certainly be bringing along ideas and songs we wither wrote or made demos of in the U.S., and we will keep you posted on how that goes, so keep checking here! Best, Young Astronauts Club.

07.19.2017 - Today, for us, is a day of reflection on the recent passing of musician Chris Cornell. Many people probably aren't aware of the fact that Young Astronauts Club's and Cornell's music influenced each other going way back to the very beginning, as we were aware of each other since very early on in our careers, thanks, especially, to the magazine Maximum Rock And Roll. Despite the obvious age difference, we both came from the very same strain of underground American rock much which was influenced by 1980s post-punk, 1970s arena rock and 1960s pop rock music that became known by the mainstream as 'alternative rock', and were aware of each other's music before everyone else was. It's sad to think there will be no more Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple Of The Dog or Chris Cornell solo music. However, we can appreciate what he left us in all of these great bands. So today, we are listening to all of these albums, back to back, grateful for what this truly great artist left us. Thanks, Chris. Our condolences go out to his family and everyone else close to him. He will be missed, without a doubt. Best, Young Astronauts Club.

We hope to put together something really special for you all, so check back for further developments as they arise. We will certainly let you know here of any upcoming dates immediately via this site! Best, Young Astronauts Club.
