Handsome Tours proudly presents enigmatic post-rock outfit Godspeed You! Black Emperor, returning to Sydney in January 2018, to perform at The Metro Theatre. The tour follows the release of their sixth album ‘Luciferian Towers’.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor began with Efrim Menuck, Mauro Pezzente and Mike Moya in Montréal in the early 90s, playing a handful of shows and recording a self-released cassette as a trio before beginning to transform the group into a large band. Recruiting numerous Montreal musicians through 1995-1996, GYBE quickly became known for their mounted sense-rattling wall-of-sound performances, featuring as many as 14 musicians and several 16mm film projectors.
Over a career spanning 20+ years, Godspeed You! Black Emperor have gained a reputation for mesmerising live shows marked by orchestral dynamics, epic rock power and clunky, beautiful film loops.
