"The Blood Choir is a unique amalgam of elements: arena rock, Norwegian style ambience, noise-pop, metal, and emotive singer-songwriter ..."
The band, consisting of Robin Maddicott and Joe Mountain, are originally from Bristol, England, but are now based between the UK and Denmark.
In 2009 they began recording material for what would become the Dartmoor EP. Whilst never officially released, the EP flourished widely in music circles and brought critical attention to the band.
In 2012 The Blood Choir released their debut album No Windows To The Old World on IRL, an independent record label that had released albums by Tinariwen and Justin Adams. The album was co-produced by Tim Oliver (Robert Plant, New Order) and was simultaneously released through his own label Top Cat Music.
That year the band toured the UK with Arbouretum and opened for The Handsome Family, Dylan Carlson, The Magic Band and The Silver Apples.
The Blood Choir returned to the studio in early 2013 with producers Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Opeth) & Jon Walker (Arcane Roots, The Heavy) to begin work on the follow up to No Windows To The Old World. Their second album, Houses of the Sun, is due for release in June 2018.
Support this evening will be from fantastic local band 'The Native.'
