NEW JACOBIN CLUB
Like a Lovecraftian horror tale told with the sarcasm and wit of Oscar Wilde, the New Jacobin Club have been one of Western Canada’s most enigmatic and talked about independent bands for over a decade and a half.
They have attracted pockets of cult followers all over the globe and their artistry has been lauded as “A bevvy of fiendish visuals and a sound that brings together a cauldron of classic goth, 70’s rock and power metal.” (Rue Morgue).
The band is led by the roaring vitriolic storyteller and founding father Xerxes Praetorius Horde (aka The Horde) and his alluring and sardonic female counterpart Poison Candi (theremin, percussion, vocals), and backed by The Luminous (electric cello), The Ruin (bass), The Rat King (drums) and Mistress Nagini (synth, backing vocals, stage theatrics) .
This group of musicians, philosophers, painters, and performance artists have five full length albums to their name on which tales of historical tragedies and dark Victorian fantasy are told.
The musical backdrop of dynamic guitars, soaring electric cello, eerie theremin and dual male and female lead vocals sets a mood of lovely decadence with a hint of wicked playfulness.
Over the years, the New Jacobin Club has been a charting success on Canadian college radio charts nationwide and has enjoyed relationships with international independent record labels since their first release was put out by Transparent Records USA in 1999.
The NJC has shared the stage with a variety of internationally renowned acts including KMFDM, Voltaire, Nashville Pussy and many others.
Several past members of the NJC have also gone on to internationally recognized touring bands with major label record deals.
