Canadian post rock mega stars GSYBE are streaming their new LP Luciferian Towers ahead of its release on 22 September on Constellation Records. Click right here to listen into the stream on NPR and read the band's statement and track descriptions below. Long story short, Godspeed! You Black Emperor are without question one of the most compelling bands of their generation. 
 
“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,
xoxoxox  god’s pee / montréal / 4 juillet, 2017”
