Hope Astronaut’s third album, “Balance in the Heights” contains eight songs the folk-rock band recorded in 2016 and 2017 with the producer Tomáš Neuwerth in his Animan studio in Kopřivnice. The new record follows up the previous one, “Someone’s Missing” (2013), while being more colourful and perhaps more pop in sound and arrangements. 
In addition to his main role as a producer, Tomáš Neuwerth (Kittchen, Kafka Band, Zvíře jménem Podzim) also added some guitars and percussions. Several guests participated in the recording: violinist Robin Lefner, singer Zuzana Pustinová, busker Terez Wrau, and Tomáš Chudoba who recorded electric guitars and later joined the band as its full-time member. 
The album’s title references constant balancing in our lives. The lyrics do not just deal with the turmoil in relationships but also the joy of travelling or moving away. The record was mixed in Helsinki by Tuomas Hakkarainen (Kaspar, John McGregor), with whom the band has cooperated since the beginning. The album’s graphic layout, dominated by an analogue photo of tower cranes in Warsaw, was created by Andrea Čepová. Live recording of a melancholic song, Colour, was a harbinger of the album, followed by a video for the first single, Feel This Way.
