Not many groups have the personnel and vision to make the epic rock orchestral sound that Godspeed You! Black Emperor does so well. Luciferian Towers, GY!BE’s September release, is a colossal display of sound to say the least. With biblical undertones and an array of instruments, from violins to gripping electric guitar, the project is chapter after chapter of experimental gold.

The Montreal based collective will take to Australia and Mexico to play a couple shows before starting their month long North American Tour in March. GY!BE is known to collaborate with all different types of artists, so for two of their Australia concerts the band will be doing a “monumental dance performance” with the Holy Body Tattoo Dance Company.

On March 14th, GY!BE will hit Union Transfer for a must-see show. Tickets and more info on the Union Transfer gig can be found on the XPN Concert Calendar. Tour dates and Luciferian Towers can be checked out below.
