All Is Violent, All Is Bright – God Is An Astronaut

12 Sep

Okay, here’s another instrumental rock song for today. Formed in 2002, the band’s name inspired by a famous quote from the movie Nightbreed. The guys themselves are actually Irish, and here’s a song called All Is Violent, All Is Bright, the title song of their second album, released in 2005.

There’s a story about how, on the band’s first tour of the United States in 2008, $20,000 worth of equipment was stolen from their van in New Jersey on the day they were meant to return. The worst thing was that the equipment wasn’t insured, and so the price of organising the tour skyrocketed. Whoops.

Anyway, this song is really cool because the guitars are strong, and it seems like the band accomplish blending a ton of different emotions into one song… without singing a single work. Check out their MySpace or watch this awesome live performance below of another one of their songs, entitled Route 666:
