The Canadian post-rock kings return to London to summon up their intense, brooding soundscapes

Montreal’s finest ambient, experimental post-rock collective were long feared defunct, but in 2010 they got back together after a seven-year hiatus. A new album ‘Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress’ is out now, meaning that GY!BE have even more mind-expanding neo-classical soundscapes in their repertoire. Their live shows are heavy on video projections, as well as eco-philosophical musings from enigmatic frontman Efrim Menuck. The band’s Camden date is a special show as part of Mogwai's twentieth anniversary series at the Roundhouse. Experimental electronic act Beak>, the brainchild of Portishead's Geoff Barrow, will also be performing.
