Astari Nite announce details for their forthcoming album today. Resolution of Happiness, the band’s fifth studio album and will be released June 21 via Negative Gain Productions. The set will be available on vinyl and all digital platforms.

Astari Nite - Resolution Of HappinessWith a blend of shadowy atmospheres, powerful rhythms, and innovative soundscapes, Astari Nite invites listeners into a world where conventional boundaries dissolve, and the unexpected thrives. Resolution of Happiness transcends traditional genres, showcasing nineties inspired alternative music with elements of dark wave, industrial and glam.

Another big inspiration for this collection of songs is friendship, frontman Mychael says: “Fortunate am I, to have the friends that I have! Knowing that the mates and I were writing an album, some of them would drop in to say hello on circus day. I think if you listen closely enough to “Tongue Tied Galore” you may catch some heavy chain smoking and loud chit chatting going on. My friends seem to be the loudest people I have ever met. Their love means so much to me and has influenced quite a bit of the mood on Resolution of Happiness.” He adds: “I guess you can say other people’s lives caught up with me during the process of writing Resolution of Happiness. My brother and Father both passed away! It was a strange period mentally for me. I didn’t know what was wrong or what was right at certain times. I just knew that I needed help and this album along with spending time with my bandmates traveling and playing shows saved my life.”

The first single from the album is ‘Necessity Meal’ and Post-Punk says: “The track echoes the sounds of Clan of Xymox, Placebo, Franz Ferdinand, and the Psychedelic Furs.”

Astari Nite is an alternative rock band that has made a significant mark in the dark wave music scene. Originating from Miami, Florida, their music blends elements of alternative, post-punk and new wave, resulting in a distinctive dark glam sound. Their style is reminiscent of classic alternative bands like The Cure and Depeche Mode, yet their modern production and unique lyrical content give them a contemporary edge. Astari Nite have supported notable acts such as Peter Murphy, The Damned, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Cold Cave, Peter Hook and The Light as well as newer acts on the scene: Actors, Twin Tribes, Then Comes Silence, and Kanga. They’ve also played several festivals including Dark Force Fest, Absolution Fest, Out From the Shadows, Dark Castle Festival, Dawnless Day Festival and A Murder of Crows.
