THE EPIC APPEAL OF PSYCH VIOLIN, TOUGH GUITARS AND PUNK SENSIBILITIES ...

add your email and get Big John Bates' take on the Gun Club's timeless "Fire Spirit".
We'll also let you know something shiny and new is underway ...

"The Noirchestra's chamber-punk image and wild antics came to the group as naturally as the intense music they create. Original Annihilator singer and Voodoo Dollz guitarist Big John Bates with Brandy Bones, RequiEmily & Ty-Ty carry a fearless charisma - walking the high-tension wire of powerful rock'n'roll. Experienced live, these four souls truly shine." - Rookie Records (Hamburg) 

LPs: Skinners Cage (2019), From the Bestiary (2015), Battered Bones (2012)

They have been ripping up stages across Europe, North America and Japan since 2012, carving out a unique place in underground rock. Brought together under the influence of sounds as diverse as 16 Horsepower, PJ Harvey, Jack White and Nick Cave, their concept is mixing organic Americana with distortion, modulation and intensity. John's rough baritone and Brandy's soulful screams allow the group to create a unique experience every night for both the audience and band.
