The experimental Wicklow outfit have announced details of a new album.
Following on from the taster of last autumn's A Moment Of Stillness EP, the Wicklow trio return with a 10- track album, entitled Far From Refuge.
Eager fans can listen to 'Tempus Horizon' - which is likely to be the album's lead single - on their website, www.superadmusic.com/god.
Having built up a live reputation over their four years of cult success, they'll prove their mettle and air new tracks on the following dates: Roisin Dubh, Galway (20 April); Cyprus Avenue (21); Tripod, Dublin (27).
More details about the album and more dates are expected, so stay tuned to hotpress.com.
