Handsome Tours proudly presents the return of enigmatic post-rock outfit Godspeed You! Black Emperor, returning to Australia in January 2018.

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.

“They make resistance sound holy, and love sound like a revolutionary act.” - NME

“Few bands ask more of the body than this thunderous Montreal collective. Few bands weave their way into the sinew more.” - New York Times

Solid set, but a bit meandering at times. The highlights were excellent.

Great show. Set was a good hour +30 mins. They played MLADIC and fam/famine bosses hang bringing down a luciferian tower Moya and BBF3. I filmed part of MLADIC and BBF3 in its entirety. You can see them at

Could’ve been louder. And sound could’ve been better. Many details got lost.

I've been to a lot of memorable shows and heard a lot of great music. I will forever remember this experience. The mix was amazing (possibly the best I have ever heard at a show). The venue was an older concert hall which was perfect for Godspeed. Speaking of which, they were perfection. It's heartening to know that good music is still out there. Theirs is music with sonic and emotional layers for those who are willing to be challenged. I will never forget what I experienced. (also...major props to the sound guys and the gentleman running the old school reel video protectors...I give you all high fives...)
