The Wicklow trio made the announcement via Twitter
Irish post-punk band God is an Astronaut have announced they will play Dublin venue The Academy as part of their European tour to promote their ninth album Epitaph.
The gig will take place February 9, 2019.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, July 12 at 10am. They cost from €25 and are available via Ticketmaster.
We were big fans of Epitaph here at Hot Press with music critic Peter McGoran saying the Wicklow-based trio reigned as 'one of the premier instrumental groups' and that their latest packed "all their pain and loss into a record which feels as innovative as it does mature."

Putting up quite the fight for Single Of The Fortnight, ‘Radau’ is a tantalising taster from les Astronaut’s new album. With an atmosphere that builds at its own sweet pace and an eight-armed drummer causing havoc behind a simple guitar riff, GIAN again prove themselves to be at the top of their game. If this doesn’t turn the world onto left-field electro-experimental instrumentals, nothing will. I’m guessing nothing will, though.Read More
