Godspeed You! Black Emperor have announced a 2022 world tour behind their 2021 album, G_d’s Pee at State’s End! The dates will take the band across the United Kingdom and Europe in January and February before GY!BE head across North America for a run of dates between February and May.

Kitty Empire, theguardian.com:

The first heroic 20-minute track of G_d’s Pee at State’s End! features a curdled, clarion-call guitar – a return to rock form after their last album, 2017’s Luciferian Towers, favoured more ambient drones. It sounds like a trumpet playing a frayed, blackened fanfare, a rallying cry that recalls Jimi Hendrix’s version of The Star-Spangled Banner in all its stately disgust…

Even by this band’s lofty standards, G_d’s Pee at State’s End! is a particularly rocking instalment of their familiar franchise; still head and shoulders above most other music that sails under the flag of post-rock. Consisting of four movements, two longer and two shorter, the album takes Godspeed back to basics: martial drumming, air-punching guitar dramatics, surging drones and sampled found sound – but with the considered nuance of years spent expanding their brief.

The titles of the pieces provide some clues to the specifics on Godspeed’s mind. The moral bankruptcy of western democracies looms large, as ever, but glaciers, paranoia, prettiness and dedications all feature. Five Eyes All Blind refers to the intelligence-sharing alliance of the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand; Where We Break How We Shine seems, by contrast, to suggest a meme about glowsticks. Serene closer Our Side Has to Win (for DH) offers up a new dawn in the light of all that has gone before. These are wordless requiems for a saner world, pummelled home with elegiac feeling.

    By HHH on May 9, 2022

  31. Hey anti , Derrick and Nelson , The Supreme Court supposedly is about to overturn Roe vs Wade . A big leak occurred. Big waste of time . That’s all this fucked up world needs is more unwanted kids born to baby mamas . Many Oreos and other mixed race mongrels . The court would be better served by banning mixed race marriages as well as marriages between two dudes and two cunts . Their priorities are fucked up

    By HHH on May 9, 2022

  32. Pretty soon you’ll be able to marry your dog , cat , horse , pig etc . No morals or boundaries anymore in this woke / cancel culture world

  36. You sad it bud , make it a crime . Problem is you got so many mixed people now , you can’t hardly define what people are anymore. . It’s gonna get worse too . Probably won’t be a white race in another 50 years . Shoulda made it a crime for niggers to fuck whites years ago

    By Nelson on May 9, 2022

  37. Better late than never Nelson. Roe vs Wade is bullshit . They need to focus on ending same SX marriages and mixed marriages too . Way more important

    By HHH on May 9, 2022

  38. Also this trans bullshit . Can you believe that shit ? Men deciding to be women and vice versa. You don’t get to choose . If your born with a Dic , that means you’re a dude . This world is fucked up

    By HHH on May 9, 2022

  39. The fucking schools are teaching this trans shit to Little kids . Many parents are pissed off . They’re encouraging this shit . What the fuck does this have to do with education. Kids go to school for the basics . Reading, writing and math . That’s this far left wing socialist agenda

    By HHH on May 9, 2022

  40. Better sign off , I’m sure the name stealing morons will want to weigh in with their stupidity
