Reptilians From Andromeda have evolved to become one of Istanbul’s most dynamic underground garage punk bands.

Forming in 2013 with the charismatic Aybike Celik Özbey on Vocals and local punk veteran Tolga Özbey on guitar, Reptilians From Andromeda have been working hard around the local and international punk scene making them one of their countries most active punk bands.

Since their inception, the band’s releases have included seven EP’s and one full-length album, Dialogues For Monkeys in 2018. They joined with Brazil’s Bang Bang Babies in March 2020 releasing a Split 7″ via Mandinga Records.

Their latest album Must Be Destroyed contains ten electrifying tracks, including a cover of Subsonics Eyeball, and latest single No More Mr Pinhead.

No More Mr.Pinhead dropped late last year with alongside a video full of raw punk energy.

With a honest garage punk sound laden with heavy rock riffs, Reptilians From Andromeda have captured the purest of punk rock sounds capturing and combining the essence of The Runaways, L7 and Hole, while still creating their own sound.
