'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend! (sometimes stylized as 'ALLELUJAH! DON'T BEND! ASCEND!) is the fourth studio album by Canadian post-rock band Godspeed You! Black Emperor, released in 2012. After re-forming in 2010, the group went on tour and silently released the album at a concert in Boston on October 1st, 2012, with official release dates intended for the 15th of October in Europe and the 16th in other countries. The vinyl edition of the album packages the lengthier tracks "Mladic" and "We Drift Like Worried Fire" on a 12" LP accompanied by a 7" featuring the shorter, "drone" tracks "Their Helicopters' Sing" and "Strung Like Lights at Thee Printemps Erable". The CD edition of the album compiles all four tracks on a single disc with a differing order to the vinyl edition. "Mladic" and "We Drift Like Worried Fire" are re-workings of unreleased live tracks previously known as "Albanian" and "Gamelan", which have been performed live as far back as 2003. The vinyl issue of the record does not list the lengths of the tracks. Read more on Last.fm.
