TRANQUONAUTS releases their sophomore album Tranquonauts 2


PRE-ORDER Wednesday June 19, 10:00 CET,

Released in Australia on Blown Music in a delexe version, and in Europe on Lay Bare Recordings - red debris vinyl, limited to 50 copies w/ - insert and DIGITAL DOWNLOAD (full album plus 7” tracks). 


The band Tranquonauts is a collaboration band that involves the creative input of the members of Seedy Jeezus- Lex Waterreus, Paul Crick and Mark Sibson Isaiah Mitchell of Earthless and Tony Reed of Mos Generator.

After the release of the Tranquonauts debut album in 2016, which was spawn from from conversation between members of Seedy Jeezus and Isaiah Mitchell, we are on the precipice of the second instalment in the journey that is the Tranquonauts, which this time includes Tony Reed.


The was long talks into the night about what to call the album, it was decided to call the second album “ Tranquonauts 2”.  They had the title and they just needed the album. This took longer than expected.

In 2022, Isaiah Mitchell was finishing up a two year tour as a guitarist for The Black Crowes. This tour ended in Melbourne, Australia.So the chance was there to record the second album (T2) after the Black Crowes tour. 

Seedy Jeezus booked a studio in Melbourne and the following day they met up and locked themselves in the studio and jammed for hours…. Recording random thoughts ideas and just playing where the music went, with no expectations, except to have a blast and enjoy themselves.    

Fast forward to late 2023, while Lex was in New York, he cut together from all of the recordings, an outline of what the second album would sound like.  With so much material at hand, Lex also pulled out 2 songs to be added on a 7” in the deluxe version. Then it was sent to Tony Reed to mix and master. At this time, Tony was also invited to contribute to the album, which he did. Playing various instruments and adding vocals etc..
