The trek kicks off March 5th at the Higher Ground Ballroom in Burlington, Vermont and runs throughout the month with stops in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Madison, Minneapolis, Chicago and more. The band wraps March 24th at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. Ticket information will be available on the Godspeed You! Black Emperor website.

Luciferian Towers arrived in September and follows Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s 2015 release, Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress. The group said the album was “informed by the following grand demands: an end to borders, the total dismantling of the prison-industrial complex, healthcare, housing, food and water acknowledged as an inalienable human right and the expert fuckers who broke this world never get to speak again.”

Godspeed will wrap their European tour in support of Luciferian Towers tonight, November 7th, in Paris. Prior to their full U.S. trek next year, they’ll play two shows in Houston: December 16th at Paper Tiger and December 17th at the Day for Night Festival.
