They did it before, why not doing it again. Almighty Canadian post rock outfit GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR have just revealed that their new record Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress will be out on March 31st via Constellation. Above you can take a glimpse at the artwork and the tracklist is located below. It’s a rather surprising but nonetheless exciting announcement and follows the band’s tactic that has been used on their latest full-length Allelujah! Don’t Bend, Ascend!, which relatively appeared of the blue back in 2012. Being a band that’s been silent for nearly a decade before that, GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR seem to be highly productive lately.
With a running time of 40 minutes in total, Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress promises to be a rather focussed and distilled record. There’s also a first “little” teaser in form of an excerpt of a song called Peasantry Or ‘Light! Inside Of Light!, which can be witnessed right here. It’s a majestic piece of beautiful noise in cinemascope. In other words: It’s exactly what we expect and love about GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR.
‘Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress’ – Tracklist:
1. Peasantry or ‘Light! Inside of Light!’
2. Lambs’ Breath
3. Asunder, Sweet
4. Piss Crowns Are Trebled
