Godspeed You! Black Emperor Announce North American Tour

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor promised that some North American dates would be added to their schedule when they announced their performance at ATP in the U.K. earlier this year, and now those details have come to light. The band will play after they return from their trip to Europe, ultimately beginning their tour in February 2011.


    Sadly, Weird Al Yankovic won’t be joining the notorious post rock outfirt on the tour, although he will appear at the group’s incarnation of the ATP festival. Further European and Canadian dates are reportedly set to be added to the touring itinerary, but for now the full set of Godspeed dates looks like this:
