Win Tickets to God Is An AstronautPosted by Nikki Benson
Previewing this show is so special to me it’s nearly intimidating–God Is An Astronaut was the first published review in SSG Music history. The show was December 8, 2008. A dear friend wasn’t able to make the show, I took a few video clips, and here we are two-and-a-half years later with 75+ writers in six different states/provinces. Would all of this have happened if I didn’t understand that GIAA was too rare of a show to be missed, even if I had to brave it alone? We’ll never know. What we do know is that this is their first time back since that old faithful day, and it is going to be a momentous occasion.
God Is An Astronaut is an Irish post-rock band with a warm, dedicated following. They’re back in town to promote their 2010 release, Age of the Fifth Sun. It’s a strong release that shows of their creative prowess in mood layering, ambience, and always tempered with a stroke of cinematic heavy metal. There will likely be a visual element to accompany the music giving the listener the complete emotional experience that can only be felt at their live show. Come! Let the music overtake you.
