Godspeed You! Black Emperor are a law unto themselves.
Based in Montreal, the collective match titanic live shows to material which traipses across genre lines, casually breaking long-standing rules in the process.
New album 'Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress' will be released on March 31st, and – at a mere 40 minutes – it's the band's first single LP release in over a decade.
That's not to suggest that Godspeed You! Black Emperor are taking a step back, however.
The five tracks would seem to occupy familiar aesthetic climes, with final cut 'Piss Crowns Are Trebled' stretching between 3/4 time and avant drone in its 14 minute span.
'Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress' will be released on March 31st. Tracklisting:
1 Peasantry or ‘Light! Inside of Light!’
2 Lambs' Breath
3 Asunder, Sweet
4 Piss Crowns Are Trebled
