The group kicked off their massive 2024 tour on Saturday, February 26 at the Knockdown Center in Queens, New York. While hitting the stage, they treated gig attendees to three new tracks that have yet to be released. The majority of the band’s set was dedicated to the lengthy brand-new tracks, as reported by Brooklyn Vegan.

Fans were quick to give the new tracks the nicknames of ‘Flowers’, ‘Flames’ and ‘Feathers’ based on the projections that played behind the group as they performed each track. Check them out below.

The group’s last full length release was 2021’s ‘G_d’s Pee AT STATE’s END’. In a four-star review of the band’s seventh LP, NME shared: “‘STATE’S END’ is a tumultuous record for tumultuous times, but there’s a piece of galvanising beauty for every moment of crushing dread. For all the gunshots and explosions in the background, there are church bells and birdsong too. Godspeed’s new album articulates dark times, but it also presents the countermovement with breathtaking power.”

Godspeed You! Black Emperor are currently making their way through a few more US and Canada dates before heading to Mexico for the Pitchfork music festival taking place there.
