Saskatoon, SK


The New Jacobin Club is Western Canada's longest running shock rock/performance art ensemble, bringing to their infamous live shows an eye-popping array of visual theatrics including sword swallowing, fire breathing, and a range of stunts with torches machetes, and sledgehammers.  The NJC’s riffy and anthematic metal-edged gothic punk with dual male & female vocalists and highlighted by soaring electric cello has been described as “somewhere between the realms of  mid era Judas Priest and newer era Misfits” (Metal Maniacs) and has even received thumbs up from Canada’s independent music authority EXCLAIM!, calling the NJC style “fiery and imposing while still retaining a degree of intelligence and fore-thought.”
