The new track, titled “Less Than”, is a radiant, multifaceted tune that baths in psychedelia and is driven by a post-punk-esque chorus. You can swim in the vibrant new track after the break.

Canadian cinematic post rock legends Godspeed You! Black Emperor have announced the release of their fifth full length album and follow up to 2012’s Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!. The new album (artwork above) will be titled Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress , which will be one multi-movement 40-minute composition, and will be released through Constellation Records on March 31. Pre-orders can be obtained here. On the new record, Constellation had the following to say:
“Known to fans and through live show recordings by the sobriquet “Behemoth”, GYBE has gradually distilled this new work down to a fastidious and uncompromising essence in the studio, with the swing-time swagger of the opening unison riff in “Peasantry or ‘Light! Inside of Light!’” giving way to increasing microtonal divergences and an exhilarating immersion in the harmonic power of massed amplified instruments, before collapsing into some of the most visceral and unalloyed noise/drone the band has yet committed to tape on “Lambs’ Breath” and “’Asunder, Sweet’”. The album closes with “Piss Crowns Are Trebled”, a classic 14-minute piece of vintage Godspeed, where ascending and descending guitar and violin melodies intertwine over gut-rattling distorted bass in 3/4 time, segueing into a pummeling four-on-the-floor series of sparkling, soaring crescendos”
An eight-minute except from the album’s opening movement, “Peasantry or ‘Light! Inside of Light!'” can be found after the break along with the album’s track listing.
Old Man Gloom have premiered the official video for their track “The Lash”, from their 2014 double album The Ape of God, over at Decibel, The clip follows a nomadic figure (who turns out to be an ape, naturally) engaging in some self-immolation ritual, only to reborn as a strange hooded figure. The video is odd, no doubt. Feel free to watch the clip after the break.
Old Man Gloom will also be tearing up the West Coast starting this Thursday. Those dates can be found below.
Brooklyn instrumental metal outfit, Sannhet, have premiered their forthcoming album Revisionist over at Pitchfork.

Elements of post-metal, black metal, shoegaze, post-rock and a plethora of other styles and nuances can be heard on the record, but still defies most basic categorization. Stream the album for yourself over at Pitchfork now.
Griever have premiered their debut full length, Our Love Is Different, over at Lambgoat. The album is officially out today via Vitriol Records and can be purchased at this location.
