Godspeed You! Black Emperor To Release New Album This Month

Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Holy motherfucking shit on a shingle!

I don’t know if you’re a fan of Canadian post-rock/experimental force Godspeed You! Black Emperor, but you should be.

They’re fucking intense, and some of the best musicians on the fucking planet. For serious, folks.

It’s been ten years since we’ve heard new stuff from them. But it seems a new record called Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend! will be available starting October 19 on Constellation.

“GYBE picked up right where they left off, and after almost two years of practicing, playing and touring, Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend! delivers two mighty sides of music (bookended by two new drones) that the band had been working up prior to their 2003 hiatus, which they have now shaped into something definitively stunning, immersive and utterly true to their legacy,” reports claim.

I am fucking psyched, and you should be too.

For those unfamiliar, here’s my favorite Godspeed tune. You may recognize it if you’re a “28 Days Later” fan.

    They actually released it at their Boston show last night. I showed up late and didn’t check out their merch table, for which I’m firmly kicking my own ass this morning.
