God is an Astronaut sign to Rocket Girl
Origins is the seventh full-length album released by God is an Astronaut and sees the band return to Rocket Girl records, who licensed the band’s breakthrough album, All is Violent, All is Bright in 2005. In the eight years since then, GIAA have continued to release albums on their own Revive Records (Far >From Refuge, 2007, God is an Astronaut, 2008 and Age of the Fifth Sun, 2010), with limited promotion and yet still amassing a vast following on social media sites (150,000 fans on Facebook, half a million listeners on lastfm.com) and touring extensively, establishing themselves as Ireland’s most intense, incandescent live act.
The new single 'Spiral Code' (rgirl99) will be released on 2nd Sept on Rocket Girl, followed by the full length 'Origins' (rgirl98) on 16th Sept

EAT LIGHTS BECOME LIGHTS-
Eat lights Become lights were born around the desire to explore and evolve the sounds of the late 70’s German Electronic acts..
ELBL have taken this template and warped the sonic influences to create a new hybrid of the classic kosmische sound. Two drummers, heavy synth sounds and wall to wall feedback and melodies are the order of the day.
The band are releasing their third LP in July this year, Modular Living, which carries on their unique approach to the motorik sound.
In the live sphere the band collaborated with Damo Suzuki, acting as ‘Sound Carriers’ to the venerable former Can frontman, in addition to sharing stages with another legendary act, US electro alchemists Silver Apples. NME hailed EL;BL as able to “mix krautrock rhythms and celestial drones to heavenly effect”.
Rocket Girl stall with lots of bargains!!
