In an typically unexpected move, Godspeed You! Black Emperor have just announced they are about to release their first new album in a decade in less than two weeks time. “Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!” comes out on Constellation on October 15th as CD, download or a 180g LP with a 7”.

The album consists of two twenty-minute instrumentals previously known as “Albanian” and “Gamelan”, now properly titled as “MLADIC” and “WE DRIFT LIKE WORRIED FIRE” respectively and two six-and-a-half minute drones (stitched into the album sequence on CD; cut separately on their own 7″ for the LP version).

GYBE will be performing two dates in the UK at London’s Kentish Town Forum on 4th and 5th of November. You can find more information on the Constellation website.
