God is an Astronaut are a 4 piece band who hail from Glen of the Downs, Ireland. Currently one of the worlds biggest instrumental bands they took their name from a line in Clive Barker’s film ‘Nightbreed’. The band was formed by twin brothers Niels and Torsten Kinsella in 2002. God is an Astronaut’s 7th full-length album, Origins was released on September 16th 2013. Comprising a dozen tracks, Origins fluctuates from controlled ferment (‘Calistoga’) to plaintive, piano-led reverie (‘Autumn Song’) to rhapsodic, unapologetically melodic fever (‘Signal Rays’) while never losing its focus. Touring in support of the album brought the band to new territories like China and Brazil including over 100+ shows worldwide.

As with all the bands music to date, they describe the record as “a photograph or a snapshot of who we are in that moment of time”. Despite being 8 albums in, the band’s outlook and ethos still remains the same as it did on their debut – the sole priority being on releasing and performing music they love.
