Godspeed You! Black Emperor Announce Australian Tour, February 2013

Godspeed You! Black Emperor, the post-rock collective hailing from Canada, have just announced their first ever Australian tour. The eight member strong band were already set to make their maiden voyage to Australia in February 2013 for All Tomorrow’s Parties and have decided to ‘make hay while the sun shines’ as they say by checking out Sydney and Brisbane along with Melbourne while they’re in the country.

Coming together back in 1994 and taking their name from an obscure Japanese 70s doco, GY!BE has survived almost two decade in various incarnations and in the meantime earned a reputation as an incredible live act that can scale their dynamic orchestral arrangements to work in an intimate venue or on the massive platform of a festival stage.

Whether it’s as part of ATP, curated with help from The Drones, or at one of their solo shows, be sure to get your hands on a ticket to see Godspeed You! Black Emperor. It’s taken 18 years to get them here, it might be a minute before GY!BE return…
