Godspeed You! Black Emperor anunciam novo álbum

Os ícones do pós-rock Godspeed You! Black Emperor anunciaram um novo álbum, com lançamento marcado para dia 22 de setembro. O disco irá chamar-se Luciferian Towers e será o sucessor de Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress, de 2015. Terá quatro faixas. A banda partilhou imagens e um texto sobre o disco, no que é associado um parágrafo a cada faixa:

this, this long-playing record, a thing we made in the midst of communal mess, raising dogs and children. eyes up and filled with dreadful joy – we aimed for wrong notes that explode, a quiet muttering amplified heavenward. we recorded it all in a burning motorboat. 
(context as follows:) 
1 UNDOING A LUCIFERIAN TOWERS – 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!
2 BOSSES HANG – labor, alienated from the wealth it creates, so that holy cow, most of us live precariously! kicking at it, but barely hanging on! also – the proud illuminations of our shortened lives! also – more of us than them! also – what we need now is shovels, wells, and barricades! 
3 FAM / FAMINE – how they kill us = absentee landlord, burning high-rise. the loud panics of child-policemen and their exploding trigger-hands. with the dull edge of an arbitrary meritocracy. neglect, cancer maps, drone strike, famine. the forest is burning and soon they’ll hunt us like wolves. 
4 ANTHEM FOR NO STATE – kanada, emptied of its minerals and dirty oil. emptied of its trees and water. a crippled thing, drowning in a puddle, covered in ants. the ocean doesn’t give a shit because it knows it’s dying too.finally and in conclusion; the “luciferian towers” L.P. was informed by the following grand demands:
  • an end to foreign invasions 

  • an end to border 

  • the total dismantling of the prison-industrial complex 

  • healthcare, housing, food and water acknowledged as an inalienable human right 

  • the expert fuckers who broke this world never get to speak again
much love to all the other lost and wondering ones,
