Godspeed You Black Emperor finally release new album

Godspeed You Black Emperor announce their first new album for a decade.

The group who who made their name with data and powerful moving instrumental passages have finally put out a new release.

It’s their first new material since 2002’s Yanqui U.X.O. The album is called HALLELUJAH! DON’T BEND! ASCEND! and is out October 16 via Constellation (October 15 in the UK). T

You can even buy the album now if you go and see the band on tour and it sounds like it’s typical, classic Godspeed material with two of the tracks thundering along for 20 minutes long, while two are six-and-a-half minute drones.

ALLELUJAH! DON’T BEND! ASCEND!:
