God Is An Astronaut give their new album the live treatment this March, with guest collaborator Fearghal McKee also on board
Dublin rocktronica merchants – their description, not ours! – God Is An Astronaut give their All Is Violent, All Is Bright album a live airing when they play Cyprus Avenue, Cork (February 25) and the Temple Bar Music Centre, Dublin (March 4).
Joining them onstage is Fearghal McKee, the former Whipping Boy man who's been writing and recording with the God squad.
The first fruits of the liaison, 'What You Want To Start?', are being made available soon on www.fearghalmckee.com as a free download, with an album to follow in the summer.
Also on the Dublin bill are Rollers/Sparkers and The Clockwork Noise.

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
