After re-forming in 2010, Godspeed You! Black Emperor went on tour and silently released the album at a concert in Boston in October 2012. Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend! has received positive reviews and has been heralded as a comeback for the collective. The album won the 2013 Polaris Music Prize. Drowned in Sound’s Andrzej Lukowski said that the release is “a modestly magnificent record that entirely validates” the band reforming, whilst the Guardian’s Dom Lawson gave the album 5/5 stars, because “the Godspeed ethos of wordlessly eliciting universal truths is remains as devastatingly effective as ever”.
