Clan Of Xymox – NEW DATE – 3/17/23
Heroes Live Entertainment presents Clan Of Xymox w/The Bellwether Syndicate & Astari Nite @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach.
Due to the global surge of Covid, Clan of Xymox will be rescheduling their March North American tour to 2023. Hold on to your tickets as they will be honored for the new date.
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

The Mission (UK) + Chameleons + Theatre of Hate “Deja Vu Tour 2022” – 9/11/22
Heroes Live Entertainment presents The Mission (UK) + Chameleons + Theatre of Hate “Deja Vu Tour 2022” @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach. This is The Mission (UK)’s first Florida show in 23 years! Reserve your tickets now.
British Post-Punk legends The Mission (UK), Chameleons, and Theatre of Hate will embark on the Deja Vu Tour that will hit North American cities in the fall of 2022.
The Mission (UK) will be making its return to the States for the first time in nearly a decade. Wayne Hussey, one of the architects of Goth and Post-Punk, emerged from playing guitar in The Sisters of Mercy to form The Mission in 1986 along with Craig Adams and Simon Hinkler. They have enhanced their reputation as one of the best and most exciting live bands in the world winning countless accolades and inspiring both lurid media stories and a fanatical following.
Chameleons original members Mark Burgess and Reg Smithies will reunite for the first time in many moons. The Manchester post-punk legends have an endearing and untarnished legacy having released many classic albums that warm the dark hearts of fans globally. Their debut album, Script of the Bridge, set the tone and remains an essential album to this day.
Theatre of Hate will be returning to North America after successful tours in previous years. Led by singer/songwriter, Kirk Brandon, Theatre of Hate released their iconic debut studio album, Westworld, which was produced by Mick Jones of The Clash and entered the Top 20 charts in the UK. Known for being one of the era’s best live acts, Theatre of Hate has continued building upon that legacy.
Modern English: After The Snow Tour – NEW DATE – 3/12/22
Heroes Live Entertainment presents Modern English: After The Snow Tour @ Respectable Street in West Palm Beach. Special guests: Entertainment. NEW DATE: Saturday, March 12th, 2022. Tickets for the original date will be honored.
Legendary British band Modern English kick off their 2022 North American headline tour Saturday, March 12 at Respectable St. in West Palm Beach, Florida. Modern English will perform its classic 1982 album, After the Snow, in its entirety—along with classics from its extensive catalog.
Frontman Robbie Grey had the following to share about the upcoming 2022 North American run: “When we finally play the whole of ‘After the Snow’ album for the first time on tour, emotions will run high. Expect a lot of pent up energy and excitement. It’s been a long time coming and will be worth the wait.”
Simply put, “I Melt With You” by Modern English is one of the most iconic songs of the New Wave era. It garnered heavy rotation on the then-thriving Modern Rock radio format, MTV and dance clubs across the globe, and was prominently featured in the classic 1983 film Valley Girl, starring a young Nicolas Cage.
On 1982’s After the Snow, the band’s sound evolved from the dark, moody and challenging post-punk found on its debut, Mesh & Lace, to a more commercial and radio friendly mix of synthesizers, guitars, catchy drumbeats and singer Robbie Grey’s unmistakable vocals. As the title suggests, the icy sound featured on Mesh & Lace melted away on After the Snow to reveal more concise and potent songs, highlighted by “I Melt With You” which brought the band up from the underground to the mainstream. It’s a song so popular that the band was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2020 BMI Awards for six million plays on radio. After the Snow was produced by the acclaimed Hugh Jones whose production credits include albums by Echo and the Bunnymen, Simple Minds, The Damned and many more, and the LP was released on the legendary 4AD Records in the UK and licensed to Sire Records in the U.S.
Formed in Colchester, England, the band self-released its first single on its own Limp Records label prior to signing to 4AD, home to such like-minded acts as Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance. Laying the foundation for future musical movements such as goth and industrial, Modern English would gain the attention of renowned BBC DJ John Peel, who featured the band twice on his program.
Modern English would record various records over the years, and most recently, the band released its latest album, 2017’s Take Me To The Trees, an album that reconnected the band to their youth, in the fervent and fecund world of late 1970s/early 1980s post-punk Britain. Given Modern English’s roots were post-punk icons Wire and Joy Division – dark and austere while still melodic and passionate – Take Me To The Trees is a return to the sound and vision of their very early work that even James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem has described as “a sneaky secret that everyone writes off, because they just think it’s going to be a ‘I Melt With You’ but it sounds way scarier than any Joy Division record [Mesh & Lace].”
