I either want this all drone or all post-rock. The last two have just not managed to feel all that cohesive with both, and doing the same thing three times would feel like such a fallback

Nah I doubt it'll be like that, this is gonna be some attention grabbing, intense stuff I bet, like Mladic perhaps. The quotes in the article sound like they're fired up about things.

But for real, I've enjoyed everything these guys have put out (to varying degrees--Yanqui U.X.O. wasn't their best, nor was their latest), so I'm so excited for this.

I'm not sure how I feel about their theme being as on-the-nose, compared to their other stuff. I've always loved the mystery and desolation surrounding GY!BE.

It gets rid of the colon when you make it a link for some reason, so it has to be copy and pasted.

Also this news is more believable than that article made about the double album by Tool that's remained up for whatever reason.

Update: According to a representative for the band, this information was prematurely leaked onto the Internet and an official announcement is still forthcoming.

'The band goes on to note that Luciferian Towers was informed by “an end to foreign invasions”; “an end to borders”; “the total dismantling of the prison-industrial complex”; “healthcare, housing, food and water acknowledged as inalienable human right”; and “the expert fuckers who broke this world never get to speak again.”'

this has me so hyped

now im really sad i missed out on tickets to see them in october
