From their upcoming 10th studio album Ghost Tapes, Ireland’s God Is An Astronaut dropped their spell-binding second single “Fade”, along with its dark visualizer.
New Album, Ghost Tapes #10, out February 12 via Napalm Records | Pre-Order NOW
GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT is almost 10 albums into perfecting their trance-inducing sound, heard clearly in their new mesmerizing single “Fade” from Ghost Tapes #10 (due February 12, 2021). GIAA is well-known for creating fantastic and multi-layered soundscapes in which the listener doesn’t realize that there aren’t even any vocals; this group doesn’t need vocals to convey a deeply detailed story.

“Fade” directly calls for action with an intense wall of sound, carried by a furious fuzzed bass line and a fast drum groove that culminates in a heavy, colossal apex. Keeping this energetic level on point, “Fade” comes to an end in an atmospheric and picturesque world of sounds to be discovered.
At 210 BPM, “Fade” is the fastest track that GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT has ever written. Starting off with a 10/8 time signature that fades into a 12/8 beat, the track is further proof of the band’s musical expertise. The song is illustrated by a dark and sinister black and white music video, created by Chariot Of Black Moth, which captures the intensity and showcases that “Fade” stands out among GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT’s former discography.
Ghost Tapes #10 will be available as four-page digipack as well as in multiple limited LP options.
