God is an Astronaut at the Troubadour!
One of the most incredible bands you'll see all year is playing the last show in their US tour this Sunday!
God is an Astronaut
8/21/11 @ The Troubadour
Blending a cinematic sonic dreamworld with experimental rock, God is an Astronaut is one of those unique bands who are able to truly convey feeling through sound. Much like Mogwai and even Radiohead, God is an Astronaut presents musical art, rather than just mere songs.
Hailing from Glen of the Downs, Ireland, God is an Astronaut have become one of the most widely celebrated underground post-rock, instrumental bands in the world, amassing a cult following of millions through word of mouth since their epic 2002 debut The End of the Beginning. Their newest record- 2010's Age of the Fifth Sun- is a luscious piece of sonic escapism, sucking the listener into a strange, lovely, profoundly-dimensional world, and never letting go.
Their live performances add video to the mix, providing an even more captivating experience. Catch them on their last show of this tour, before they head back over the pond!
Here's their press release:
