An ethereal post-rock experience to dive into infinite atmospheres.
Irish four-piece rock band God is an Astronaut have announced major details on their forthcoming 10th studio album, titled Ghost Tapes #10.
Scheduled to be released on February 12, 2021 via Napalm Records, one of the most well-known and highly-acclaimed experimental groups in the business are set to reach a career benchmark with their new release.
Comprised of Torsten Kinsella on guitar/piano/synths, Niels Kinsella on bass, Lloyd Hanney on drums and Jamie Dean on guitar and piano; the group have garnered an immense fanbase around the world.
Along with an artful black and white music video (by Chariot Of Black Moth), the hypnotic first offering 'Burial' captivates with atmospheric yet melancholic, bewitching instrumental lines.
The seven-minute piece showcases the band’s unique ability to explore plaintive wistfulness and shuddering riffs, forming a perfect storm whilst also creating intense sonic-spheres that are second to none.
Ghost Tapes #10 looks to be one of the most powerful albums from the band to date – it retains all the rich musical and emotive elements the band is known for by wheeling around luminance, but offering its harsh and deep reminiscences as well.
With artwork was illustrated by David Rooney, who has worked with the band in the past, the visuals play into the sense of the foreboding and uncertain times we live in.
Ghost Tapes #10 will be available as a four-page digipack as well as in multiple limited LP options.
