CLAN OF XYMOX ‘Days Of Black UK Tour 2017’
15th Sep 2017
Since their formation in their native Holland their music has been constantly changing, always challenging and often quite breathtaking. Some of us have always been of the opinion that Clan Of Xymox are something special. A band fired by electronic music but determined, always, to make something that is very much their own. They are unique.
Formed in 80’s Amsterdam and signed to leading English independent label 4-AD, home at one time or another to the Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Pixies among others.
The 4 AD period saw the release of the band’s self-titled debut album and the second album Medusa. Two records full of tumbling electro beats, throbbing sequencers and moody vocals.
Clan of Xymox became one of the pioneers of the dark and moody electronic music that later became known as darkwave. Later they got signed to a subsidiary of Polygram USA. Their releases as solely Xymox were in a more synthpop/dance music vein. This period was known as their most commercial one, having chart dance hits in the USA.
In 1997 Ronny Moorings made the decision to restart Clan of Xymox and return to his musical roots in the Gothic electro scene with the album release ” Hidden Faces ” Since then, the band signed to USA based Metropolis Records, and released a series of critically acclaimed albums. ( Creatures (’99), Notes Of The Underground (2001) , Farewell (2003), Breaking Point (2006), In Love We Trust (2009),Darkest Hour (2011)
The band has released 15 studio albums, 2 DVD’s, a Remix and Live album , “Best Of” and even a cover album named” Kindred Spirits”(2012), giving ode to their own past influences. The last release is ” Matters Of Mind, Body” (2014)” another a timeless, deeply emotional Gothic record.
2017 the beginning of April a brand new studio album named “ Days Of Black “ will be released worldwide
To the great enthusiasm of their fans the band still tours with great energy worldwide on a constant basis. Current line-up consists of: Ronny Moorings, Mojca , Mario, Sean and Daniel.
