EUROPEAN SUMMER TOUR (JULY 24-AUG 12) 2018
“We created our sound from the dead things that Brandy drug in from the gothic country of her native Montana. From the rusty riffs John uncovered in some dark garage in the Ottawa Valley. From black metal soundscapes and lyrics influenced by rustic paintings partially obscured by spiderwebs.” – John & Brandy
The Noirchestra brandishes strings, guitars and gymnastics to grind out their unique brand of Americana Noir. Touring across North America, Japan and Europe since 2012 their style is drawn from the veins of this eclectic, electrifying band and their “relentless, film noir-inspired, Dracula-awaking grooves” – Beatroute Magazine (July 2017)
The Noirchestra is based on the twin peaks sensibilities and dual vocals of eclectic guitarist Big John Bates and Brandy Bones – who rules her upright bass with an iron bow … RequiEmily seduces melodies out of psychedelic violins and Ty-Ty pounds out all the devils.
The Noirchestra was originally imagined by (Annihilator co-founder) Big John Bates and Brandy Bones in Cascadia in 2010. Their first LP was released on Rookie Records in 2012 & they’re currently writing for their third LP – to be recorded in Germany in Summer 2018.
