New GY!BE Album Incoming

2021-03-03 by Eons | 69 Comments
Veteran Canadian post-rock group Godspeed You! Black Emperor are set to release their new album ''G_d's Pee AT STATES END!'' on Constellation records, April 4th.

Constellation writes: "The inimitable GYBE returns with another soundtrack for our times. As the heretical anarcho-punk title implies, Godspeed harnesses some particularly raw power, spittle and grit across two riveting 20-minute side-length trajectories of noise-drenched widescreen post-rock, while another two 6-minute pieces find the band at its most haunting and elegiac."

Tracklist:

1. A Military Alphabet (five eyes all blind) (4521.0kHz 6730.0kHz 4109.09kHz) / Job’s Lament / First of the Last Glaciers / where we break how we shine (ROCKETS FOR MARY)

2. Fire at Static Valley

3. “GOVERNMENT CAME” (9980.0kHz 3617.1kHz 4521.0 kHz) / Cliffs Gaze / cliffs’ gaze at empty waters’ rise / ASHES TO SEA or NEARER TO THEE

4. OUR SIDE HAS TO WIN (for D.H.)

Don't get my hopes up like this, please.
Hopefully it's better than their last one.

this album seems to have the same format as Allelujah! two 20 minute songs, and two short 6 minute songs and Allelujah was amazing. The band haven't made 20 minute songs since 2012 and before so I'm stoked to see what happens.

I was actually disappointed to read that. We've had so many albums of 20 min post-rock track, followed by a drone, followed by another 20 min track followed by another drone. Was hoping they'd opt for another formula this time around. Regardless, interested to hear this one, I haven't really enjoyed their albums since Allelujah!

That isn't true there's only been one album with that format. Past two albums had 7 - 14 or so minute songs and some drones and the last album had shorter songs on average

this band does better in long format imo. I would have been the opposite of you and disappointed if I read that it had the same format as Luciferian Towers, which I think doesn't fit the band.

I mean, I'd say Asunder sort of had that format too except the two drones were in the middle. I know it was supposed to be just one long track, but still. And on Luciferian Towers, the opener and Fam/Famine were somewhat dronier cuts sandwiched between two post-rock epics. I do see your point but personally it sounds too much like more-of-the-same for the band for me

Or let me put it this way: their first three albums all had drone sections but they always felt like a natural part of the experience. I haven't got that from their last three albums at all.

Slow Riot has an almost 20 minute song it though so does LYSF, and Yanqui and Allelujah, but ever since then no more 20 minute songs. Unless you count the past two albums as one long song, which again if thats the case why separate the tracks? I think this format works better for them as showcased on Allelujah but we will see.

"don't try to be cute with it" - Have you read the Mt. Zion titles?
"they've called themselves that off and on since like the 90s" [2]
I'm stoked, probably the most stoked i've been since their reunion. Seems like the perfect time for a Godspeed You! Black Coffee LP. Anyone happen to have an idea on who "Rockets For Mary" or "(for D.H.)" are referring to?

"elegiac" gives me more haunting classical/drone vibes than their previous noise pieces tho, so i'm hopeful for more string instrument-oriented ambient this time.

on the bandcamp page they mention theres glockenspiel on the album and ''radios'' whatever that means I assume he means they are using voice samples again because he mentions doomsday prophets, etc. idk I thought it was interesting though. who knows what we're going to get
