Big John Bates
“We created Americana Noir 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 Civil Dead
Sounding like Marty Robbins on a meth binge, the Civil Dead stitch together post-punk, art rock, and dark americana. They are based in Southwest British Columbia.
