Os Godspeed You! Black Emperor, GY!BE para os mais íntimos, lançam o novo trabalho Luciferian Towers a 22 de Setembro, e está marcada uma tour europeia no final de 2017. O disco foi ganhando forma juntamente com outros projectos, em particular num trabalho de evocação do centenário da Batalha de Messines, decorrida em plena I Guerra Mundial, que estreou numa apresentação ao vivo no campo de guerra.

O anúncio do lançamento do disco foi acompanhado por uma apresentação faixa-a-faixa de autoria da banda, que publicamos na íntegra nesta nossa secção. Podemos arriscar e afirmar que os GY!BE estavam a pensar no Arte-Factos quando o press release foi preparado? Claro que sim.

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 borders
+ 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,
