EXCLUSIVE: Live stream God Is An Astronaut's new album here

Hot Press got its hands on the glorious ninth album from post-rock outfit God Is An Astronaut, and we're streaming it here.

Since forming 16 years ago, the Wicklow-based trio have reigned as one of the premier instrumental groups.

Even on album No. 9, Epitaph, the band pull absolutely no punches, packing all their pain and loss into a record which feels as innovative as it does mature.

Speaking about the album, Torsten Kinsella said: “This is an album that is very dear to our hearts, we hope you enjoy it and for all our fans in Europe, we will see you soon.”

The album will get its proper release this Friday, April 27.

On top of that news, God Is An Astronaut have just been announced to appear at Robert Smith’s Meltdown at the Southbank Centre.

The band will perform at Queen Elizabeth Hall on June 18, 2018. For more info and tickets here.

Stream Epitaph in full below, and find dates for GIAA's extensive European tour. Pre-order it now.

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.
