Godspeed You! Black Emperor working on new album

Godspeed You! Black Emperor working on new album

Exciting news coming from our friends at Voir: in an interview with Olivier Robillard Laveaux, Bruce Cawdon revealed that the current resurgence of Godspeed You! Black Emperor is not a one-time thing, as the Montreal cult band is actually working on a new album.

No word on when exactly we will be able this new recorded material – Godspeed is scheduled to have a meeting about this once they’re done with the current tour, sometimes in July.

Bruce Cawdron’s other project, Esmerine, will launch its new LP, La Lechuza, on June 7 and perform at the Ukrainian Federation on June 4, as part of the Spring Pop festival.
