Godspeed You! Black Emperor announce US fall tour in support of late capitalism

Godspeed You! Black Emperor have decided to extend their stateside visit after determining it would be too depressing to get a dozen high-fives from Ryan Schreiber in July and then just get lost in the shuffle of another stacked ATP lineup in September. The hope now is that more meaningful connections will develop during the first half of October, when the Godspeed Tank rolls through the East (of the West) and leaves tread marks on our children’s hearts.

Speaking of which, what will we say to our children when they return from the Godspeed show and ask irritating questions about the gated palatial estates we raised them in? It won’t be easy to look them in the eye, but your best bet is to promise them that a new GY!BE album will be waiting for them under the Christmas tree this year (all the while knowing that the band has only mentioned working on new material and might not debut it for some time). If that’s not enough, throw in a $50 gift card to the PlayStation Network. A small group of extremist children will get even more annoyed by this, and in those cases it’s simply time to buy new locks for your bedroom door. They’ve been brainwashed, they’re coming for your hard-earned jewels, and you’ll burn the goddamn place down before those little brats make it to the hidden safe!
