Jarboe is known for her 14 years work with the legendary NYC East Village ArtRock band Swans,  
 as well as her recent musical collaborations with such bands as Jesu, Neurosis and A Perfect Circle. Broadrick,  
 who joined pioneering U.K. grind band Napalm Death at the age of 15, formed the influential  
 metal/industrial act Godlflesh in the late-80s and in 2003 started up his current band Jesu.
 

About working with Broadrick, Jarboe says, “When I met Justin, he commented upon the impact and influence of 
Swans upon his music. We did a concert together in London in 2005 and began discussing working together. 
I had also been drawn to the unique energy of Jesu and so this was exciting to explore.”

What the press are saying… 
 
“…the pairing of the two really couldn’t be more fitting…a constant give and take of Broadrick’s discordant  
 notes and Jarboe’s angelic vocals…a spellbinding tug-of-war between the sacred and the profane…” – DECIBEL 
 
“Broadrick and Jarboe possess an uncanny ability to imbue dissociative soundscapes with a kind of naked,  
 yearning humanity and emotion….J2 feels like the beginning of something tentative and graceful.” – TERRORIZER 
 “J2 is a true marriage of extremes…Never less than mesmerizing, the album plucks heartstrings and  
 strokes the nerves to awful splendor. A masterful work.” — METAL MANIACS
