    New Pope Joan single and free download

    Brighton's post-punk hurricane that is Pope Joan, smash into 2010 with their brand new single 'Dictator' set for release on 29/03/09…

    Having caught the attention of Steve Lamacq last year with their AA side single Centurions / Volumes, Pope Joan have been busy gigging and recording with none other than Mark Williams (White Lies, Biffy Clyro, The Cribs, Nine Black Alps, Enter Shakira…) in preparation for what will no doubt be their biggest year to date.

    Pope Joan's sound has developed into a stripped back force of sonic poetry, bringing to the fore joyously crafted songs delivered by their outrageously charismatic frontman Sammy Aaron JR.

    Dictator, the first single taken from their forthcoming album due out later this year is one such song. Spectral synth-lines sit perfectly over the staccato guitars building up to a deliciously anthemic vocal hook that will no doubt be capturing the hearts of many a festival crowd this year

    To fully appreciate the raw musical talent that they possess, their explosive live shows are a must see. Last year saw them play with The Invisible, The Hoosiers, The Fall, Dananananaykroyd to name a few resulting in a scrum of promoters banging on their door.

    Comprising of Sammy Aaron JR (Vocals, Guitars), Tom Windsor (Synths, Guitars, Vocals), Dave Coomber (Bass Guitars, Synths, Vocals) and Andre Millin (Drums) these four south coast troubadours have sculpted a raucous and quirky breed of left field pop as angular as their impossibly good looks. With a string of singles and a brand new album all set for release the future looks very bright.

    Upcoming Gigs:

    21/03/10 - Communion @ The Albert - Brighton
    22/03/10 - One Love @ The Social w/Kilford(the music painter) - London
    12/04/10 - Old Blue Last - London

    To celebrate the forthcoming release of their new single 'Dictator', Pope Joan are giving away abrand new track called 'The Ground Is Shakey':-
