...And Stars Collide return in 2011 with “The Courage to Start Again”, their first full-length album. Based in Nottingham, England, the band received widespread acclaim in 2009 for their self-titled debut EP and subsequent live dates with the likes of Rinoa and Pure Reason Revolution. “The Courage to Start Again” retains the guitar-driven instrumental nature of the band’s previous release but draws more deeply from progressive influences, pushing the dynamics wider and honing the arrangements to flow relentlessly from start to finish. From the immediacy of opener “Corridors” through to the thunderous closing title-track, the record defies the post-rock blueprint with a carefully crafted use of melody, aggression and restraint.
