’Allelujah! Godspeed You! Black Emperor are back with a new album after 3 years of touring. Constellation Records have announced that the band’s sixth studio album is titled “Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress”, due for release on the 31st of March. The album will be available on 180gLP, CD and Digital, but for now it is only available for pre-order from Constellation in Canada. International orders will begin after the release date.
Those who saw GY!BE on the road during the past couple of months might have heard parts of the new album. Those who haven’t, these gentlemen have got you covered! Together with the announcement, they released an almost 8 minute long preview on SoundCloud, which you can listen to above. If the whole record sounds every bit as monumental as this excerpt, Godspeed You! Black Emperor will have no problems doing justice to their moniker of “Behemoth”.
If you live in Europe, you’ve got a good chance of them visiting a venue nearby during their European spring tour. Starting off on the 7th of April in Hamburg, Germany, they’ll visit several venues in Italy, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands before closing off their tour in Reykjavik, Iceland on the 4th of July.
