Noah's Ark Was A Spaceship

Having been compared to the likes of Polvo, Swervedriver, Sebadoh, and Sonic Youth, the members of Omaha four-piece Noah's Ark Was A Spaceship draw their influence from late '80s college radio and '90s counterculture. After releasing 2008's My Name is What is Your Name EP on Slumber Party Records, the band now prepares for the launch of its forthcoming debut full length album Hanga-Fang, recorded in Omaha by Mark McGowan and mixed by AJ Mogis.

The band formed in 2005 when guitarists John Svatos and Andrew Gustafson met bassist Ricky Black at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, later joining forces with drummer Rob Webster. They've since been in constant motion, both in the recording studio and embarking on national tours, all the while living diligently by these words:

Under no circumstances does Noah's Ark Was A Spaceship wish to push their beliefs upon you. They just hope you come to their shows and have a good time. The band is happy, and wants you to be too.

Just saw you them in Pittsburgh last night (Sept 1) -- actually played with them -- they wickedly rocked. See these young artists when you can.
