This is it folks, this is not a drill. Following the release of a single from the album and in anticipation of its release, the geniuses at Godspeed You! Black Emperor are streaming the new album, Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress, in full. What you need to know: it’s amazing. It opens with the already released single and simply goes uphill from there, building on that amazing foundation. Just head on over the jump. The stream is there.
This is everything I wanted and more. While certainly a shorter release than what we’re used to, it’s no less powerful and persuasive. The riffs are insanely emotional as always, the feedback is on point, contained and harnessed to the needs of the band. The overall structure of the album is much more approachable but still intelligent. In short, this is brilliant.
Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress is out via Constellation March 31. You can pre-order it here.
