Stream the Triumphant Opening Track on Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s New Album

Godspeed You! Black Emperor live

Godspeed You! Black Emperor unveiled the triumphant opening track from its upcoming Luciferian Towers LP today, making good on the band’s own grandiose description, which reads as follows:

look at that fucking skyline! big lazy money writ in dull marble obelisks! imagine all those buildings much later on, hollowed out and stripped bare of wires and glass, listen- the wind is whistling through all 3,000 of its burning window-holes!

Have a listen to the four-alarm riffs, fractured electronics, and piston-powered brass parts (provided in part by special guests Bonnie Kane and Craig Pederson) of “Undoing a Luciferian Towers” below, and look out for the rest of the record on September 22nd through Constellation Records….
