Thank God For Astronauts are a band you may not know about, but you should. TGFA have been cranking out original melodic indie-rock for over 5 years and have received nothing but high marks. Check it out.

Biography

Thank God For Astronauts play loud, melodic, fuzzed out rock and roll music. TGFA live in Denver, Colorado and first launched in the summer of 2002. The band’s new album titled
“Bring Us Meat” is scheduled for release in the spring of 2007. This is TGFA’s debut release
on Needlepoint Records and also the first full-length from the band. The album was recorded
by Bryan Feuchtinger at Uneven Studios in Denver, Colorado.

The band plays catchy, melodic songs, inspired by the likes of GBV, Television and Spoon.
Each song on the bands latest album offers up something different. There are catchy pop songs, anthemic rockers, big guitars and driving bass lines; as well as some gentler moments too. Throughout “Bring Us Meat”, Thank God For Astronauts deliver well crafted songs using good old-fashioned guitars, bass and drums with an occasional synthesizer thrown in the mix. The result is an album that is familiar in structure yet original enough to keep you coming back for more.

Thank God For Astronauts can be found most nights holed up in their rehearsal space working
on new material or on stage at your local dive playing the only songs they know.
