With recent appearances described as “a triumph of sound and vision” that “straddled the line between grandiosity and chaos”, Godspeed You! Black Emperor are in top form as a live unit, following the March release of ‘Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress’.

The band have now announced plans for more touring in September and October: they’ll play a month of shows in the United States (plus one in Toronto), including their previously-announced appearance at Hopscotch Festival, before heading back over to Europe for a series of dates in the UK and Pitchfork Festival in Paris. More European dates are on the way. See below for the current itinerary, and listen to Asunder, Sweet… opener “Peasantry or ‘Light! Inside Of Light!” – recently included in NPR Music’s “Favourite Songs of 2015 (So Far)”.
