Godspeed You! Black Emperor ATP Sideshow

The seminal Canadian post-rock outfit Godspeed You! Black Emperor have announced a Melbourne sideshow to accompany their appearance at the sold out ATP 'I'll Be Your Mirror.

Formed in 1994 as a solo musical outlet for Efrim Menuck, GY!BE quickly grew to a core group of nine members and in 1997 they released their debut album F#A#8. Since, then they’ve gone on to release 3 studio albums and an EP, each generally consisting of an entire piece which is then divided into sections ranging from 15 to 25 minutes. The group's live performances were recently described by MTV as "a musical soundscape that alternates between flashes of sonic brilliance and moments of quiet ecstasy.” This will be their first appearance on Australian shores.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor play the Forum Theatre on Friday February 15. Tickets on sale Thursday September 13 through Ticketmaster.
