God Is An Astronaut have released a stream of their new album Epitaph ahead of its official launch later this week.

It will be released on Friday (April 27) via Napalm Records, but all seven tracks can be heard below.

Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Torsten Kinsella tells Hot Press: “This is an album that is very dear to our hearts, we hope you enjoy it and for all our fans in Europe, we will see you soon.”

Last month, the band released their video for the title track exclusively with Prog.

Speaking about the song, the band told Prog: We wanted the video to capture the horror, overwhelming grief and the dark reality of an untimely death.

“The video features post mortem photography as it directly reflects the subject matter. This song touches on everything from childhood innocence (vulnerability) to the moment you are given the shocking news, to the aftermath that faces a family over a tragic loss.”

God Is An Astronaut will head out on tour from this weekend. They have dates planned in Europe, the UK and Russia.
