Bohemian Circus, The New Jacobin Club Streaming New Track ‘Champagne Ivy’ + Declares Release Of New Album ‘Soldiers Of The Mark’ Out Sept. 2nd
Six piece punk rock cabaret, The New Jacobin Club, are a must see, bucket list band. Their unbelievable gothic freak show performance, theatrical storylines, and multi-instrumentals (cello, theremin, keyboard, etc.) are a rare occurrence for the flat lands of Saskatchewan. They are not a stranger to the Canadian Music scene as they have been a staple for nearly 20 years. With plans to release their ninth album titled ‘Soldiers of the Mark’, NJC have been keeping tabs on their progress.
The official release date for ‘Soldiers of the Mark’ is September 2, 2014 with the band now streaming the first single ‘Champagne Ivy’ at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8blkV_xMdI
“This album represents for us a benchmark of maturity and collaboration. “Champagne Ivy” was the first song I started working on after we finished our “Acts of Treason” tour in 2010 and it’s a blast to hear how the band’s newest members 5 years ago have today become such an integral part of the NJC sound and style. Luminous and Candi both shine on this track with the electric cello leads and rich backing vocals. It’s the colourful and elegant live sound we’ve been working on for 4 years finally captured it in the studio. It’s also one of the 3 free songs we’re giving away to new fans joining our online community! You can sign up right at newjacobinclub.com.” comments The Horde
The album will be for sale through Itunes, and can be pre-order via the bands bandcamp and website www.newjacobinclub.com
In addition, NJC are offering fans a very special and limited edition ‘Soldiers of The Mark’ hardcover coffee-table format lyric book with the release of the album. It will be a joint effort with Calgary, AB based RunRabbit Entertainment. RunRabbit is notable for their independent short films (“Lilith” premiered at the 2013 Calgary Horrorcon and featured music by the New Jacobin Club prominently in the soundtrack) as well as their dark and provocatively themed photography. The book will contain not only the complete lyrics to the album, but an introduction, brief commentary written by band members and entourage, and full album credits. Contributing visual artists include Jess Thamnos (responsible for the iconic and menacing album cover ), Kathryn Trembach (band photographer) and Candice Grosenick (graphic artist behind the band’s concert posters and merchandise).
First editions of the book will be available by pre-order only and will include a special digital album download featuring the regular 10 song album plus 8 more bonus tracks. The deluxe 18 track version of the album will only be available directly from newjacobinclub.com and with the limited edition book.
