Indie electronica outfit God Is An Astronaut will play two live dates in celebration of their record's re-release
This week sees God Is An Astronaut re-release their debut album, The End of the Beginning, which has completely sold out in record shops.
The re-packaged record will feature two bonus tracks, both of which will be free to download for people who bought the first issue of the album. Visit www.godisanastronaut.com for details.
To coincide with the release, the Dublin three-piece has announced live dates in Dublin and Galway – at The Village (November 1) with guests The Sticks, Vitacaliga and Chop Luey, and at Galway’s Cuba Bar on November 13.
In other news, the video for God Is An Astronaut’s current single, ‘From Dust to the Beyond’ has attracted its an amount of controversy, with MTV refusing to play it before 9pm because of its potentially distressing subject matter. Composed of war footage, the clip features explosions, corpses and an actual execution.
The video, which is available for download on the band’s web site, will be screened in all its gory details on Tower Record’s Plasma screen on October 31. The screenings, which take place between 1pm – 5pm, coincide with the re-release of The End of the Beginning, which hits shelves that day.

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
