Cork, Ireland’s GOD ALONE have today released their sophomore album, ETC, via Prosthetic Records. On their second full-length GOD ALONE gleefully blur genre lines including mathrock, post-metal and avant-garde dance music, tying together the six song tracklist with abstract lyrics influenced by French dadaist poetry.

In celebration of ETC‘s release, GOD ALONE will be taking over the Prosthetic Records Instagram account for the day – join the band here.

Stream ETC via Apple Music, Deezer, Bandcamp and Spotify
ETC is available via the Prosthetic Records webstore here.

Of the single release, the band comments: “We’re buzzing to finally have this record out since we’ve worked on it for so long! We definitely think it’s the most God Alone sounding thing we’ve made yet.

“We’re also so excited to commence our IRE/NI tour. We haven’t played a few of the cities in since before the lockdowns like Galway and Belfast, so it’ll be class to play there again. Also our Cyprus Avenue gig in Cork will be our biggest hometown show yet!”

The five musicians behind GOD ALONE
are quite literally students of their craft; ETC – their second full length album – was recorded at MTU Cork School of Music which they all attend. ETC
was produced by the band and Christopher Hockey, and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Witch Fever, GGGOLDDD, Ghost). The origins of the band lie in a heavier, post-metal sound, but the intervening years and an influx of new and stimulating influences has seen them broaden their palette, expand their horizons and hone a distinctive sound.

Whilst embracing all that the Irish music scene has to offer, GOD ALONE
are constantly pushing to make their way out of Ireland and further afield. Cutting their teeth in an eclectic and enthusiastic local scene helped them to refine their live chops, giving their performance increased weight and attention as they progressed. Now when they write, the live iteration of their music is always at the forefront of their minds.

GOD ALONE‘s approach traverses through mathrock, dance, avant-garde, post-punk and more on its way to its final destination. Citing the Talking Heads as a big influence, GOD ALONE embrace absurdism at every turn – in particular the absurdity of nothingness; the art of existing without meaning or context.
