about

Big John Bates is initiating you into their Southern Gothic Death
Cult; a band with an orchestral edge of ”heavy-hearted cello,
weeping upright and come-hither guitars”. Every piece was
painstakingly brought together from the album art created by
Santiago Caruso (Pan’s Labyrinth) to the mixing David Carswell
(Teagan+Sara, New Pornographers). Songwriting, vocals and
the heavy lifting is all from Brandy Bones & Big John Bates.

Along with upright bass Brandy contributed violin, cello and
thumb piano while John broke into his collection of guitars,
dobros and percussion. The recordings feature Leanne
Laboucher on cello and Greg Gravy on Mandolin while both JT
Massacre and Brother Kris drummed for their lives!

Most tracks for “Bestiary” were recorded on the Caleiuche at
dock in Vancouver. The boat’s aged teak and hardwood floors
were symbiotic with the wooden instruments - we advise you
chase it with a dirty shot of whiskey … let it grab your fancy.
