Published Mar 19, 2019As part of touring behind his 2018 solo debut Pissing Stars, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Silver Mt. Zion co-founder Efrim Manuel Menuck enlisted the help of Kevin Doria (Growing, Total Life) as both onstage accompanist and an opening act. Now, the pair have revealed plans for a new collaborative record.
Menuck and Doria will deliver the five-track are SING SINCK, SING on May 10 through Constellation. As the album's title suggests, the pair will use the SING SINCK, SING as a moniker for their releases going forward.
"WE LANDED IN MEXICO CITY LAST FALL, WROTE THIS RECORD QUICKLY WHILE THE POLICE DROVE ROUND AND ROUND," Menuck wrote in a statement before offering an all-caps, track-by-track look at the album's five "saturated survivalist hymns."
He wrote, "FIRST SONG IS SELF-EXPLANATORY. 2ND SONG A STATEMENT OF INTENT. THIRD SONG IS AN EMPTY SPACE BETWEEN TWO HIGHWAYS. FOURTH SONG IS ABOUT A MURDERED FOREST. FIFTH SONG INSISTS THAT WE WILL WIN. HOLD ON. THO THESE TIMES ARE DARK TIMES. HOLD ON."
You can hear the album's fifth and final track, "We Will," in the player below. Menuck and Doria have also mapped out an accompanying tour behind the disc, plotting Canadian stops in Montreal, Toronto and Hamilton before taking off to Europe. You can find their itinerary below.
