Founded in 1993 by singer/composer Joseph Budenholzer in New York's East Village
Backworld grew out of the World Serpent apocalyptic folk scene, best known in London. On the east coast of the United States Backworld played their early shows at CBGB, drawing on eschatological themes and fin de siecle mysticism, their folk/classical leanings were a sharp contrast to the no wave and noise-rock bands of the NY music scene at the time. They are now recognized as one of the the main American progenitors of the apocalyptic folk and neoclassical genres.

“For the Life of the World.” is there their eight studio album.

In addition Budenholzer has written three operas including an adaptation of the Francis Thompson poem “The Hound of Heaven,” describing his work as paraliturgical theatre.

Over the years collaborators have included David Tibet & Michael Cashmore (Current 93), Drew McDowall (Coil), Anohni, Little Annie, Lydia Lunch, Isobel Campbell (Belle and Sebastian), Jarboe (Swans), Maya Hardinge, and Obie Award winning Ridge Theater.
