Breitenbach and Greg Valou plus an ever-expanding raster of Canadian and global musical talents, New Age Doom is a genre-defying platform for experimentation and collaboration where many musical and aesthetic interests combine and contrast to create powerful sonic statements. Thriving on spontaneity, ambiguity and experimentation, New Age Doom offers a unique vision of extreme music where anything can happen.

The band is known for its eclectic and collaborative approach, working with various guest artists trom different genres and countries, including Jamaican dub legend Lee “Scratch” Perry, American jazz luminaries Tim Lefebvre, Danny McCaslin and Daniel Rosenboom, as well as members of MONO, Team Sleep, Glassjaw, Death Grips and Quicksand.

The band’s music blends elements of drone metal and progressive rock with jazz, dub and global music styles to create a unique and immersive sound praised by critics and audiences alike.

The band’s latest album, There Is No End, is a collaboration with Norway’s Tuva Hellum Marschhäuser (Tuvaband) that sees theband evolve towards a more melodie direction while retaining their signature freewheeling chaos.

In 2021, New Age Doom garnered international attention and acclaim for their collaboration with Lee “Scratch” Perry on an album that blended dub with jazz, drone metal and prog to create a poignant swansong and tribute to the late dub legend, who passed away shortly before the album’s release.

New Age Doom is a band that defies conventions and boundaries, creating music that is bath challenging and captivating. New Age Doom is more than a band: it is an artistic philosophy.

New Age Doom is known for its energetic live performances and immersive sound. Despite performing as a duo, without the aid of loops or backing tracks, they cover a full band’s worth of sounds thanks to Breitenbach’s live triggering of vocal samples, synths and sub kick, and Valou’s custom-made instruments and multi-amp pedalboards, which allow him to cover guitar and bass simultaneously.
