Lagwagon frontman Joey Cape's indie rock band Bad Astronaut have just released their first new song in 15 years, "Wide Awake." The song comes from the new Inner-Space 7", which also includes a never-before-heard alternate version of "Violet" from 2006's Twelve Small Steps, One Giant Disappointment, and is coming out on April 23 as part of Bad Astronaut's new vinyl box set. It'll include the first-ever vinyl pressings of Twelve Small Steps, One Giant Disappointment and 2002's Houston: We Have A Drinking Problem, plus a repressing of 2001's Acrophobe, which hasn't been available on vinyl since 2010.
"My favorite thing in the world is when bands make three records, break up and then years later, there’s an anthology or a box set," says Joey Cape. "And you’re immediately like, ‘Why? But also, ‘I’m gonna buy it!"
