Godspeed You! Black Emperor

with special guest Mette Rasmussen

Godspeed You! Black Emperor


Following their gripping and immersive 2016 performance in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, Godspeed You! Black Emperor returns this January showcasing their new album Luciferian Towers plus songs from their critically acclaimed back catalogue.

The Montreal post-rockers have a reputation for delivering the most mesmerising shows, infusing orchestral dynamics with stunning ‘cinema-esque’ film loops and epic rock power, where composition and emotion fuse into a sound like no other.

Their ability to ‘make resistance sound holy and love sound like a revolutionary act’ (NME) is contained in the band’s inimitable signposts and touchstones of sound: savage drones and oscillating overtones, inexorable crescendos and scorched earth transitions.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre by arrangement with Handsome Tours
