Big John Bates: Noirchestra

Vancouver, British Columbia

Big John Bates came out of late 90's second-wave psychobilly and carved out a name touring Europe, Canada and the American underground punk circuit from Washington to Florida.

Since 2012 our sound has morphed into the Gothic Americana of the Noirchestra. I also have a past in thrash metal, as singer and co-writer/founder of Annihilator so we cover a helluva lot of musical ground.
