The british Dark Wavers of Cauda Pavonis are meanwhile old-hands within the scene and caught a quite large fanbase during the last decade. With “Peace Through Superior Firepower” they return with their, until now, most matured and most felicitous album and offer the listener again some excursions, accompanied by wonderful dark melodies and thoughtful lyrics. The CD will be available from 22nd of June 2012 on at afmusic as well as on all well-known stores from 13th of July 2012.
Forged in the heartlands of the UK at the end of the 20th century, Cauda Pavonis are an impressive tour de force of 18th century style and 21st century technology all wrapped up in anthemic and driving music. A unique mix of influences brought together to form a band that has endured for 14 years and is still going.
Infamous for their Darkwave Buccaneer imagery of the early years of their career which grew into a harder edged alternative look, which they change on occasion to suit not only their mood but their releases.
The band have played both headline and support appearances at UK and German festivals, including Gothic Pogo Party, WGT, WGW, Spider’s Web Festival to name a few. They have gigged extensively as both headline and support across the UK. Their support slots have been with the likes of Toyah, The Eden House, Simon Hinkler, Gene Loves Jezebel, NFD, Inkubus Sukkubus, Killing Miranda, Midnight Configuration and Chameleons Vox.
The band have self released 4 albums and 2 EP’s a single, a pair of download only anthology releases of their earlier work remastered and have appeared on 25 compilations. The band itself is made up of original members Su Wainwright (nee Farr) and Dave Wainwright, long term guitarist Chris Hines and bass player Rob Quick.
