November 7th, 2012 || London show and free downloads

We are very pleased to announce that we’ll make our first live appearance in well over a year on Saturday 1st December, when we visit London for the first time. It’s a great lineup with OBE and There Are Ghosts, with all the details available over at Facebook, supported by the best online facebook likes supplier.

As part of promotion for this show, we’ve made all of our digital downloads available for free over at our music store. We hope you’ll enjoy them enough to tip us a couple of pounds/dollars/etc. or order the CDs, but we’re keen for our output to be available for anyone who wants it.

Audiophiles will be pleased to know that FLAC downloads are now high resolution 24 bit, 88.2 kHz files straight from our studio masters.

November 27th, 2011 || A Cheery Wave

Back in July we played a few shows around the UK to promote our new album. The video we captured in Liverpool came out looking and sounding the best, so we’ve decided to make the whole set available below. The audio is also available to download from the Internet Live Music Archive.

In addition to this, Flies Are Spies From Hell have kindly included us on the latest installment of their compilation series promoting UK post-rock, instrumental and math-rock artists. When Our Eyes First Met features on A Cheery Wave From Stranded Youngsters (Third Wave) alongside tracks from Talons, Brontide and many more – please take a moment to check out some great new music and support some of our contemporaries.

April 20th, 2011 || When Our Eyes First Met

We are pleased to finally unveil the first taste of our new album, The Courage to Start Again, which can now be pre-ordered from our music store. When Our Eyes First Met leads a free, three-track EP featuring two exclusive b-sides. The press release reads as follows:

…And Stars Collide return in 2011 with “The Courage to Start Again”, their first full-length album. April 21st marks the release of a free download EP lead by album track “When Our Eyes First Met”, an eight-minute epic that defies the post-rock blueprint with its ferocious opening salvo. Two self-produced non-album tracks serve as B-sides on the effort, which is available now from andstarscollide.com and will be appearing on a number of directly-targeted blogs and BitTorrent trackers.

Based in Nottingham, England, …And Stars Collide received widespread acclaim for their self-titled debut EP during 2009. “The Courage to Start Again” builds on this previous work, retaining its guitar-driven instrumental nature, but pushing the dynamics wider and honing the arrangements to flow relentlessly from start to finish. Recorded by Richard Collins and Robin Newman (Therapy?, You Slut!, LostAlone) and mastered by Medi Safa (*shels, Black Sheep Wall, Mahumodo), the seven-track album will see a CD release in July through the band’s Sky Weeps Productions imprint.

We’ve also confirmed our first live show of the year for May 11th at the Chameleon in Nottingham, with What the Blood Revealed and The Union Station Massacre. Tour dates are currently being booked for July to support the album release, and we would welcome any invitations.

Please feel encouraged to share the new EP far and wide – we recorded these B-sides for free, and are making them available for the same price. As per our previous release, the new album is entirely self-funded. Recording and releasing music to a professional standard is a protracted and expensive process (particularly without label involvement), so if you enjoy the upgrade in quality please consider the cut-price pre-order we currently have on offer.

April 26th, 2010 || Signs of life

We realised that if you’re not following us on Facebook, you probably won’t know about a gig we have coming up in a few weeks. After almost a year without a proper live set, we’ll be unveiling the fruits of our labour on Friday 14th May at The Central in Nottingham. The current plan is to play all unreleased material, with up to three brand new songs on show.

We sorted out a proper rehearsal room-share in February, which means we’re now playing together once or twice per week rather than per month. We’ve been able to really focus on writing new music that we hope to record for an album later this year, and will bring you some more detail once more detail exists.

June 5th, 2009 || Headline show

Thursday 18th June will see …And Stars Collide take to the stage at Seven to play their first proper headline show. This comes on the back of a continuing stream of positive reviews, which have now been added to the biography page of the site.

April 4th, 2009 || Rock Sound review

Rock Sound issue 121There’s a very complimentary review of the …And Stars Collide EP in the April 2009 edition of Rock Sound magazine, which is as usual well worth a read. On the back of this, the band will support Great Eskimo Hoax at the Chameleon in Nottingham on Saturday 18th April. Advanced tickets are available here, and there should be another new song being unveiled on the night.

In website news, the images page has now been updated with a photoshoot from November and a more practical layout.

February 12th, 2009 || Warm-up show

…And Stars Collide will play a warm-up show at the newly-relaunched Seven in Nottingham next Wednesday. This will be the band’s first live outing since the release of their debut EP, which is now available to purchase online.

January 8th, 2009 || Supporting Pure Reason Revolution

…And Stars Collide will support Pure Reason Revolution at The Bodega Social Club in Nottingham on Friday 13th March. This is likely to serve as the launch event for the new EP, and should see the unveiling of a new song or two in the setlist.
