God Is An Astronaut premiere a brand new music video for the track »In Flux« from their latest full-length album, »Ghost Tapes #10«, released on February 12th, 2021 via Napalm Records.
Video was done by Chariot Of Black Moth.
From Napalm Records:
Reigning as one of the most well-known and highly critically acclaimed experimental instrumental groups out there with a respected musical legacy spanning nearly 20 years, Irish four-piece God Is An Astronaut will reach a career benchmark upon the release of their 10th studio album, »Ghost Tapes #10«.
Founded by Niels and Torsten Kinsella in 2002, every piece of music the band has breathed life into since then has offered an intense sonic soundscape, leading the listener through an ethereal and emotional post rock dive into infinite atmospheres.
»Ghost Tapes #10« rekindles the band’s classic line up with Jamie Dean once again on piano and guitar duties, and rather than pick up where the quartet left off in 2018, explores a radically different approach, with the focus fixed on movement and intensity. While the album is certainly the most ferocious God Is An Astronaut full-length to date, it still retains all of the rich musical and emotive elements the band is known for by maneuvering around luminescence whilst offering harsh, deep reflections as well. Works of art like »Burial«, »In Flux« or »Barren Trees«, with additional guitars by Jimmy Scanlan, amongst others, are proof of these sonic illustrations. The album closer, atmospheric »Luminous Waves«, transports the listener into a trance-like mindset – captivating them with a meditative, deep connection to their inner self and as they drift away to stirring tunes of guest cello virtuoso Jo Quail.
The album’s detailed artwork was created by David Rooney, recognized for his work with band in the past, and plays into the sense of foreboding and uncertain times we live in.
God Is An Astronaut is:
Torsten Kinsella – Guitar, Keyboards
Niels Kinsella – Bass, Visuals
Lloyd Hanney – Drums
Jamie Dean – Keyboards, Synthesiser, Guitar
God Is An Astronaut were forced to reschedule most of their shows to 2022.
The band comments: “Unfortunately, but predictably, we have had to reschedule most of the shows to next year. If all goes to plan, we look forward to seeing some of you later this year and most of you in 2022. No decision has been made on the Summer shows as of yet but these look unlikely to happen. For those of you who wish to avail of a refund, please check your email or contact the ticket vendor. Our plan is still to play our »All Is Violent, All Is Bright« album in full followed by our new album »Ghost Tapes #10« in celebration of our 20 Year Anniversary. We have also added some new shows, full list below.”
