It's a free event, and they will play specially written music for this event. The event is to remember an apparently epic battle of World War I on 7 june 1917.
But I don't think I'll be able to make it :-(
Some more info is here as well: https://www.zerohour.info/
but that's also in Dutch only
You should try to make it. This sounds like something worth seeing.
Also, I can't help but think that this is the kind of thing the band might release as a live recording. Not that they're big on that... in fact I don't think they've ever done it, period. But still, it's been a couple of years since their last album, and for some reason this feels like the kind of move they might make. It also seems like a nice combination... WWI-soundtracky type stuff and GY!BE. Y'dig?
Like, Trent Reznor found a nice outlet for his music in soundtracking dark ass David Fincher movies. Mogwai did some nice work on Atomic. Etc.
