REISSUE ON CARGO RECORDS! LIMITED 180g CLEAR VINYL LP! An artist who is no stranger to genre hopping, for Pomegranate ASTRONAUTALIS enlisted the most unlikely group of musicians to ever back up a retired battle rapper.

Hand picking members from THE POLYPHONIC SPREE, MIDLAKE, and THE PAPERCHASE, he composed this indescribably diverse album under the guidance of Grammy nominated producer and engineer John Congleton (EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, THE POLYPHONIC SPREE, MODEST MOUSE).

Pomegranate plays out like a collection of short stories, each song as varied in style and sound as they are in subject and character.

With each listen, Pomegranate reveals new secrets to the devoted listener as dense lyrics unfold into masterfully spun yarns; ASTRONAUTALIS pop sensibility manages to weave catchy melodic strains that will haunt you for days.
