...And Stars Collide are a band from Nottingham that fit most closely into the genre labeled post-rock, playing guitar-driven instrumental music with a strong emphasis on dynamics. note that while "post-rock is 99% tedium", ...And Stars Collide prove "there's still plenty to be done with that 1%".

Having recently self-financed their debut record in the form of a half-hour EP, the band are now seeking opportunities to promote the release through live performances, compilation appearances and press coverage. Though the band may draw inspiration from the delicate tones and textures of artists like Explosions In The Sky, a wide range of influences converges to create a sound wholly their own. Never afraid to throw in a power chord to add to the impact of a crescendo, "Your Winter and Night Spent in Disguise" sends a subtle nod to the post-metal world of Isis, while "Every Step Takes Me Further From Home (Part II)" draws on the energy of 65daysofstatic.

Following successful local shows with the likes of Ocean Bottom Nightmare and All The Empires Of The World, ...And Stars Collide are keen to bring their stirring live sound to a wider audience.
