However, it did not see the light of day until February 2022 when one of the members published it on Bandcamp. In 2003 they decided to take a break and focus on respective personal projects until 2010, when they announced their return with a tour throughout the United Kingdom. Godspeed You! Black Emperor has 7 more albums, 1 EP and 2 compilations. The last of them "G_d's Pee At State's End!", composed of 8 tracks, came out in 2021. Currently, Godspeed You!
