Watch the new video Viva! Goatopia directed once again by the one and only Edie Calie.
„Viva! Goatopia” is a synth frenzy peppered with thundering drums and spoken word samples. They gleefully mix cinematic ambient sounds and driving beats in their cauldrons, don goat masks, and deliver it all with sardonic humour. “VIVA! GOATopia hallucinates the missed opportunities of the past without mourning them.
The video, directed by Edie Calie, shows the GOATopia in the once-promising world of an abandoned geodesic dome. The darkly funny video concept brings to life what was once described forty years ago by Fad Gadget: the attempts to control nature and society in the face of global disaster. “
– Alice Teeple (Post-Punk.com)

Our new Christmas record is now available via Bandcamp & Bandstore:
Bing Crosby & David Bowie, Frank Sinatra, the Beach Boys, Wham! and now THE DEVIL & THE UNIVERSE!
The Viennese Goat Wave band, who likes to use mythologies as an aesthetic framework for their music, are releasing a Christmas record!The Devil & The Universe is a band from Vienna, which was founded in 2013 and consists of members Ashley Dayour, David Pfister and Stefan Elsbacher. The style of the band could be described as electro-new-wave, with echoes of the soundtrack genre, ambient, neo-classical and psychedelia.
This time the group, which always uses goat figures and / or the goat god Baphomet as non-binary avatars, focuses on the pagan and contradicting aspects of Christmas. The band’s primary goal is to end this strange year of crisis with a moment of utter but weird joy.The musical Christmas collection of the Viennese band consists of traditional songs such as „Little Drummer Boy“, „Silent Night“ and their own compositions, such as the trilogy “The Ghost Of Christmas Past, Present and Future” or the sinister archaic Krampus invocation “Krampus Rumble”. Krampus is of course a traditional Austrian “Christmas Demon”.
TDATU is particularly pleased to work with British musician Matt Howden from the band “Sieben”, whom they have been able to win as guest vocalist on the English Christmas hymn “In the Bleak Midwinter”. They also invited Box, from “Box & The Twins” to interpret the classic Christmas tune “Little Drummer Boy”.
„The Devil” and “The Universe” were the cards pulled that would prophesize a name for a musical-magical-transcendental composition and transformation project.
