GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT have announced a new live album!
Titled The Beginning Of The End, the upcoming live album from the Irish post-rock band is the follow-up to last year’s Ghost Tapes #10, and is scheduled to be released in July this year, via Napalm Records.
Recorded at Windmill Lane Recording Studio in Dublin, Ireland in October last year, the album features modern transformations of all of the songs from their debut album, 2002’s The End Of The Beginning, encompassing each track’s evolutionary changes throughout the band’s years of live performances while allowing the original melodies and songwriting to shine through.
“When we recorded the The End Of The Beginning we only had limited equipment,; we couldn’t even record full live performances,“ bassist Niels Kinsella reveals. “The Beginning Of The End gave us the opportunity to perform the whole album live and allowed us to bring more feeling and expression to the music and songs. We’re very excited to share this with everyone.”
Alongside the announcement of the new live album, the band have released a new music video for the first song lifted from the upcoming live record; From Dust To The Beyond. “From Dust To The Beyond was written in 2002,” says guitarist/pianist Torsten Kinsella. “Inspired by the futile wars of the past and how we are doomed to repeat our mistakes and ironically we are now seeing the same unfold once again!”
