Join us in saying "godspeed you, Godspeed You! Black Emperor" as the band embarks on early 2018 tour dates in Australia and the US

Fresh off the September release of Luciferian Towers – an album we certainly gave a review to – post-rock post-rockers Godspeed You! Black Emperor have pre-announced tour dates across two of this planet’s pre-post-continents.

First, in January, its six shows in Australia; including performances of “monumental,” with collaborators The Holy Body Tattoo Dance Company, at the Princess Theatre in Launceston. Then, after some down-time to recover from that brutal post-Australia jet lag, the band will tour the American Northeast, Midwest and Near South (sorry, Far South! Godspeed you too though!) throughout March. These dates come in addition to previously announced December performances in Mexico and Texas, as well as two sets over two nights as part April’s Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, the Netherlands.

Phew, that sure is a full travel schedule! To that, we here at TMT lean just a little farther back in our comfy desk chairs and say “good luck, and godspeed you Godspeed You! Black Emperor.” Bon voyage, and please bring us back a some fun souvenirs. The TMT non-denominational holiday shrub could use some kitschy ornaments this year, hint hint. ;)
