    “Tyburn Saints don't sound anything like saints, that's for sure. They actually sound quite like the opposite: maudit artists. Johnny Gimenez's deep, tenebrous tenor knows how to scream at us ("oh Sable"), but also how to lure us with vicious whispers or charming dark ballads ("Bells"). This is well executed dark rock that will find fans among those who revere Mr. Nick Cave's musical output.”
    -NYC Artists on the Rise, The Deli Magazine

about

"For the Benefit of Strangers" was recorded at Dreamland Studios. The setting was fitting, a 19th century church converted to a studio that has in the past seen the like of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Weezer, and Dinosaur Jr. and more recently Beach house, Yeasayer, Dr. Dog, and the Hold Steady. Produced by Pete Caigan and engineered by Adam Armstrong, mastered in Dumbo by Joe Lambert who has worked with Animal Collective, Deerhunter, A place to bury Strangers, and Bat for Lashes.

For The Benefit of Strangers was funded by the band and through the generous support of those who believed in us. Thank you for purchasing our music, it means the world to us. Please consider adopting a Greyhound:

about

Tyburn Saints New York

You could call Tyburn Saints' genre of haunting & maudlin rock "death indie." Following in the steps of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds before them (singer Johnny Gimenez sounds like the love child of Cave and Ian Curtis), their music is dark, dark, dark. With a set list full of murder ballads, the Saints lull you into a false sense of security while their lyrics are a bit more sinister.
