Godspeed You! Black Emperor Breaks Up

Posted by: Joe DeAndrea (02/09/08)
Godspeed You! Black Emperor have broken up.
From the ArticleThe Montreal post-rock innovators have called it a day, but not for the reasons of 'musical differences' cited by many retiring bands. Instead, founder Efrin Menuck declared that the band had become untenable due to "an existential freakout" relating to the Iraq war.

it kind of sucks knowing it's a definite breakup and not a "maybe" hiatus.
