Wicklow’s own electro-rock trio God Is An Astronaut are heading to Russia to play a festival in Moscow this July, alongside acts like Mudhoney and Shitdisco.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 29 Jun 2007

God Is An Astronaut will appear at the Gauloises Avant Festival in Moscow, Russia on July 7. The band are second on the bill after Seattle grunge group Mudhoney.

Also playing the two-day musical festival are the UK’s Shitdisco, Brooklyn indie-pop outfit The Ladybug Transistor and a host of Russian punk, disco, grunge, jazz, avant-garde and prog rock bands.

Following their stopover in Russia, God Is An Astronaut will take to Europe in October to promote their new album Far From Refuge.

And for our international readers, you’ll be pleased to know that the band have just signed a licensing deal to release the album in Japan. Deals have also been worked out to release the band’s material in the UK and the USA.
