New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ New Jacobin Club Official Website)
Saskatoon, SK punk rock horror band The New Jacobin Club, best known for their mind-blowing stage theatrics with band and sideshow stage performers, are proud to announce their upcoming Western Canada tour in promotion of their upcoming EP "Left Behind," a 15-year anniversary release featuring four songs from the band's 1990s catalog. The band will also be premiering new material from their upcoming full-length (an apocalyptic Victorian conspiracy), tentatively titled "The Mark," while on the tour.
"The group is really charged up right now, we've got new material that we feel represents everything the NJC has been musically moving towards since the last millenium! We'll be out on the road in May with the new ep, we start on May 12 in the dark bohemian underworld of Saskatoon, our hometown, and leave the province the following week. We'll have Mistress Nagini and members of the Angry Teeth Freakshow on board for shows at larger venues - specifically larger venues that don't mind the mess. " commented vocalist /guitarist The Horde.
The tour will kick off on May 12 in the dark bohemian underworld of their hometown of Saskatoon and see them venture the following week as a seven-piece with Mistress Nagini (The Snake Woman) and members of the Angry Teeth Freak Show, such as Raunchy Rabies (the girl with the iron stomach and unbreakable skull) on board for shows at larger venues, specifically, larger venues that don't mind the mess.
You can listen to "My Smile," the opening track from "Left Behind
" online at Reverbnation and Bandcamp. For More info please visit www.newjacobinclub.com
About EP: "Left Behind
" features songs from a studio session where the NJC re-recorded, re-orchestrated and re-envisioned songs from the 1990s. Two of the four songs were chosen because they were staples in the NJC's first live sets in 1996 and had never received an official studio treatment or public release. This EP sees the current line-up forge a link to the group's past while still maintaining their colourful elements of power metal, punk and gothic rock. "Left Behind
" will also set the tone for some new material that will be introduced live on stage this May on their Western Canada tour. The EP will be released digitally online as a pay-what-you-want item and as a limited edition CD with vinyl record sleeve-style packaging.
About the live show and tour:
Halloween 2011 saw the premiere of the epic and engaging "Moral Adventurers" live show with Mistress Nagini and Rima the Birdgirl providing theatrical accompaniment. Elements of this elaborate event will be taken on the road, along with new musical material not yet heard on stage. As with most of their previous tours, NJC and their entourage put on live shows that are stand alone concepts unto themselves. The "Moral Adventurers" live show is partially based on songs from their as yet unrecorded new full-length and tells the tale of a Victorian Gentlemen's club whose true purpose is to revel in depraved entertainment while plotting to help bring about the apocalypse. The NJC will be stomping and stumbling across stages around Western Canada during the second half of May, starting in Saskatoon.
