In today’s uncertain times, it’s the constants that offer solace – the firm foundations that provide reliable support within the chaos of everyday. That’s why we’re happy to announce the return of Irish post-rock giants God Is An Astronaut, a guaranteed excellent concert experience, who will visit us as part of their 15th anniversary tour of the incredible All Is Violent, All Is Bright album.
During the lockdown, many of you have undoubtedly played precisely this album, taking advantage of its epic compositions to wander elsewhere at least in your mind. It is this album’s wondrous melodies, meaty riffs and bombastic directness, released in 2005 and re-released in 2011, that proved that instrumental post-rock veterans God Is An Astronaut belong at the very top of their genre. “God Is An Astronaut’s new full-length places them in a league with giants, and one can only imagine the undreamed of heights this band may reach in later years if the staggering promise they display on All Is Violent, All Is Bright continues to be fulfilled,” wrote Drowned In Sound at the time. Today, after all these years, it’s clear they knew what they were talking about – and that God Is An Astronaut have definitely fulfilled expectations.
Irish four-piece God Is An Astronaut have released eight full-lengths so far, their latest, Epitaph, in 2018. The band regularly visits our Katedrala Hall, as they always ensure an unforgettable concert, not just musically, but visually as well. Their gigs are regarded as spectacular explosions of sound and light that leave a long-lasting impression, as evidenced by their constantly growing audience. The band is fast approaching two decades of existence and is justifiably named as one of the lead acts in the genre, alongside bands such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai and Sigur Rós. We can’t wait for them to visit us again!
