Release: 2 April 2021.

The band: “This record is about all of us waiting
for the end. all current forms of governance are failed.
This record is about all of us waiting for the beginning.”

Pitchfork wrote: “They’ve opted to acknowledge a world of seemingly infinite struggle and
offer a well-earned, well-timed score for continuing the fight. Godspeed You! Black Emperor spent a quarter-century making hold music for awaiting a revolution; why shouldn’t they bask
in signs of its potential sparks now, however limited or fleeting they might be?”
Score: 8/10.

Turn Up The Volume says: Fitting soundtrack for the funeral of the past, and at the
same time for the re-birth of humankind. Somber and apocalyptic. Only a very small light
at the end of the tunnel. Repetitive doom-and-gloom psychedelia, repetitive wall-of-guitar-scapes. Goosebumps all the way. One word: Götterdämmerung!
