Welcome to the Bad Astronaut Wiki!

Bad Astronaut is an American indie/punk rock band founded in 2000 by Joey Cape, singer from Lagwagon. In Bad Astronaut, Joey Cape explores a new style of pop, with lyrics often about deep and intricate personal matters.

The band released its album, Houston: We Have a Drinking Problem in 2002. The follow-up album, Twelve Small Steps, One Giant Disappointment was released on November 14, 2006 on Fat Wreck Chords. Drummer Derrick Plourde committed suicide in March 2005. and subsequently Joey Cape announced on the band's MySpace page, that this would be the final album of Bad Astronaut, "because without Derrick, there is no Bad Astronaut."

Joey Cape expressed plans on releasing a B-sides album sometime in the future. Bad Astronaut reformed to play their first ever live shows in July 2010. They played 4 shows in California, with Mike Hale of In the Red and Joey Cape doing a solo act as the openers.

Whilst Fat Wreck Chords have acquired the Joey Cape back catalog and will be releasing represses of his solo album and collaborations with Tony Sly and Jon Snodgrass, there is as yet no word about any re-releases of the Bad Astronaut albums.
