Clan Of Xymox – NEW DATE – 3/18/22
Heroes Live Entertainment presents Clan Of Xymox w/The Bellwether Syndicate & Astari Nite @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach.
Dutch darkwave pioneers Clan Of Xymox perform for their first South Florida show since 1991 at Respectable Street in West Palm Beach.
New album “Limbo” out now! Clan of Xymox with special guests The Bellwether Syndicate – William Faith (of Faith and the Muse) and Sarah Rose (aka DJ Scary Lady Sarah), Astari Nite and Jolt Radio’s Shadowplay DJs.
Since their formation in their native Holland, Clan of Xymox has been constantly changing, always challenging and often quite breathtaking. Formed in 80’s Amsterdam and signed to leading English independent label 4AD, home at one time to the Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, and Pixies among others. The 4AD period saw the release of the band’s self-titled debut album and the second album Medusa. Those two records were 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 dance chart 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. Since then, the band signed to USA based Metropolis Records, releasing a series of critically acclaimed albums.
The band has released 15 studio albums, 2 DVD’s, a remix and live album, “Best Of” and even a covers album. In 2017, “Days Of Black“ was released worldwide. It remains faithful to its roots and new-wave basis, but progressively evolved towards more melodic and harmonious songs.
Clan of Xymox have done what many similar bands fail consistently to do. They’ve upped their game, shaken things around, plunged back into the darkness and come up with something sounding fresh, original, and exciting. 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.
The Bellwether Syndicate
Fronted by veteran artist William Faith (of Faith and the Muse) and Sarah Rose (aka DJ Scary Lady Sarah), The Bellwether Syndicate are, as illustrated by their debut, coloring outside of prescribed genre lines, choosing here to push the boundaries of style and substance into something relevant and vital.
While the music is written and recorded by William and Sarah, the live show features collaborators Philly Peroxide (keyboards/percussion), Paul Sin (bass) and Faith’s long-time drummer Stevyn Grey. The Bellwether Syndicate present a powerful and commanding live performance, where the sound and substance of the recorded work truly comes to life; where the art is made whole by the audience — and this is a band that knows how to connect with its audience: not a typical fan base, but an engaged and invested network of family and familiars spanning the globe.
Astari Nite crosses an obscure mix between gothic rock and post-punk, exploring themes of death, love and the occult.
Having performed alongside acts such as Peter Murphy, The Damned, Psychedelic Furs, She Wants Revenge, Cold Cave, Assemblage 23, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Modern English and She Past Away, they have established themselves as contemporaries of the GOTHIC ROCK scene.
Astari Nite has released two brand new singles so far in 2021 titled All Else is a Curse and Pocket Full of Posies and can be heard at https://astarinitengp.bandcamp.com

Living In Oblivion: 80s 90s Party feat. Anything Box – 2/12/22
Heroes Live Entertainment presents Living In Oblivion: 80s 90s Party featuring ANYTHING BOX (First South Florida show since the ’90s!) plus DJ Dino of Synthology 101 and special guests TBA @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach.
ANYTHING BOX (First South Florida show since the ’90s!)
Formed in 1986 by Claude S. with two friends, Dania Morales and Paul Rijnders, the New Jersey trio Anything Box took their name from the title of a book of short stories. The act signed with Epic and released its debut album, Peace, in 1990, notching a hit with the upbeat “Living in Oblivion.” The song crossed over from clubs (Billboard Dance #10) and managed to climb onto the pop charts (reaching #65). They returned a year later with their second album, Worth produced by Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Einstürzende Neubauten, Wire, Erasure). With a current lineup consisting solely of Claude Strilio, Anything Box continues to incorporate more and more influences into its electronic pop framework.
DJ Dino of Synthology 101 will be spinning 80s-90s synthpop and dance music.

The Ocean Blue arrived as the 1980s drew to close, and their debut record on the famed Sire Records label in 1989 seemed to summarize the best of the musical decade. The band of four teenagers from Hershey, Pennsylvania quickly achieved widespread acclaim and radio & MTV airplay, with top 10 Modern Rock/College Radio hits like Between Something and Nothing and Drifting, Falling. They followed their debut release with the subtle and atmospheric Cerulean, which included perhaps their most beloved song, Ballerina Out of Control, and followed that with their highest charting pop album Beneath the Rhythm and Sound and the single Sublime, featuring a video of the band in the sublime landscape of Iceland. The band’s fourth record for Mercury/PolyGram, See The Ocean Blue, was a departure to a more guitar rock sound of the 60s and 70s, but with the band’s 80s DNA peeking through. After a busy decade of recording and touring, the band left the majors in the late 90s. Several independent releases and related touring followed in the 2000s, including 2000’s Davy Jones Locker and 2004’s Waterworks EP, and some wider international touring. In 2013, after much anticipation, the band released their first full length record in over 10 years, Ultramarine, on Korda Records, a Minneapolis-based label cooperative label the band helped launch that same year. The record was a welcome return for fans of the band and a younger generation of fans, and garnered widespread praise as one of their very best albums. In 2015, the band worked with Sire and Rhino Records to reissue their first 3 Sire albums on vinyl. The band marked the occasion by performing the first 2 albums in their entirety at limited concerts throughout the U.S. In 2016, the band did a full South American Tour where some of their most passionate fans reside.
The band has now returned with their signature dream pop sound on the beautifully powerful Kings and Queens / Knaves and Thieves. Out now on Korda Records. See the band on tour in 2019-2021.
