The new BIG JOHN BATES LP “Skinners Cage” arrives April 2019 on Rookie Records.


Americana Noir is the sound of dead things Brandy Bones drug in from her gothic Montana roots & rusty riffs Big John Bates uncovered in some dark garage in the Ottawa Valley, all powered by Ty-Ty’s percussive soundscapes and adorned with RequiEmily’s post-punk violins.

Their 3rd LP release “Skinners Cage” arrives in Spring 2019 and another EU tour is hot on its heels. The Noirchestra has been performing across North America, Europe and Japan since 2012.
