Biggest music news of the year for me. Post-rock gods Godspeed You! Black Emperor have decided to return to the road, after a hiatus that begun in 2003. Even though they probably won’t release a new record before calling it quits again, and they almost definitely won’t come to Australia on their tour of “a handful of British and European shows, and then 9 American towns”, I’m still over the moon about their reformation.
They’re not doing interviews, or taking other offers, or anything. For now, all they want to do is play the Northern hemisphere shows. I’m hoping and praying that they change their mind and come down under.
