Thee Silver Mt Zion are a Montreal-based band fronted by Godspeed You! Black Emperor's brooding brainchild, Efrim Menuck. Both of Efrim's gigs boast spacious, classical-meets-post-rock sounds.
Started as a side-project 10 years ago, today TSMZ has supplanted the long-dormant Godspeed' as Constellation Records' flagship act -- not just in terms of popularity or acclaim, but as outspoken exemplars of the label's uncompromised business ethics. The group's sound has evolved with every album, but for all the change that TSMZ have undergone in the past 10 years, their music remains rooted in the ideology of perseverance in a cruel world. That quality is reflected in the band's collaborations with various veteran outsiders (Patti Smith, Grant Hart, the late Vic Chesnutt), and in Menuck's own torn and frayed voice.
Fans of Constellation Records and Godspeed You! Black Emperor know how big a deal it is that Thee Silver Mt Zion are finally making their first trek east since the band's inception. Mightypop only promote one show every summer, 2011 was Bonnie 'Prince' Billie. 2010 was Holy F#ck. And we're so proud and excited to make Thee Silver Mt Zion are only summer show of 2012.
