Android Superstation is a rock band from Orange County, California. It was formed in 2017 by partners in crime Marc and Heather, and made complete by Danny and James. Together, the group creates original music with a myriad of influences, from pop to prog to ambient industrial.
 

This band creates music that allows people to feel something. We live in an increasingly isolating and dehumanized world, but music is a great vector to remind people of their own humanity and to bring them together.
 

Beyond that, Android Superstation has created a universe that uses comics, short stories, and visual art to explore the depths of the human condition - good, bad, and otherwise.

Danny found his love for music at an early age when he was gifted a few punk rock records. Those records served as an outlet and a pastime and proved to be highly influential. Inspired to write like his heroes, he bought an acoustic guitar and began refining his skills. From then on he formed and fronted multiple bands, dreaming of one day being able to share his music with a captive audience. His biggest challenge was finding like-minded people to share his dream...until now.

Sir James spawned from the nether regions of the Golden State of California. The mighty supreme being had sent him from the holy kingdom to bring to the earthly peoples bass licks of epic proportions that would bring peace to all living creatures on this sacred rock called earth...
