A message from God Is An Astronaut about their upcoming tour.
Comments the band:
“We hope this finds you well. Unfortunately, we have some more changes to the touring schedule for 2022 and beyond.
Over the last few years, as most of you already know, we have been unable to tour due to the pandemic and the restrictions they have brought. Some of the band have become dependent on other forms of income outside of music and can longer commit to the busy touring schedules of the past. To this end we have had to cancel and reschedule 22 shows. Sheffield, Manchester and Gothenburg have been cancelled and refunded; all the other shows will take place over the next 18 months. All tickets remain valid!
2022 also marks our 20 Year Anniversary, “The Beginning of the End” tour will shift focus to mark this occasion by featuring songs from the last 2 decades and a special Anniversary release of the same name comes out on “Napalm Records” on July 15, 2022. We are excited to share this with everyone, more details coming soon.
Our sincerest apologies, this is the best we can do for now and we hope to see some of you very soon”!

Reigning as one of the most well-known and highly critically acclaimed experimental instrumental groups out there with a respected musical legacy spanning nearly 20 years, Irish four-piece God Is An Astronaut just reached a career benchmark with the release of their critical acclaimed 10th studio album, “Ghost Tapes #10”, a little over a month ago.
“Ghost Tapes #10” is certainly the most ferocious God Is An Astronaut full-length to date – it still retains all the rich musical and emotive elements the band is known for by wheeling around luminance, but offers harsh and deep reminiscences as well. Works of art like “Burial”, “In Flux” and “Barren Trees”, with additional guitars by Jimmy Scanlan, amongst others, are proof of these creations of sound. The album‘s closer, the atmospheric “Luminous Waves”, captivates in a trance-like mindset – putting one deeply in touch with their inner self, drifting away to stirring tunes of guest cello virtuoso Jo Quail.
