Clan Of Xymox were now not only inhabiting the arthouse but filling dance floors in the more discerning clubs. October 1988 saw the band and 4-AD part company. Encouraged by label boss Ivo they signed to Wing, a left of centre subsidiary of media monolith PolyGram. The band shortened their name to Xymox and gave the world 1989's "Twist of Shadows" album, their debut for Wing. It was in many ways a bold record and it showed that being signed to a major concern wasn't going to stifle a natural sense of musical adventure. Clan Of Xymox continues their shows in 2010. May 20, 2011, on Ronny Moorings’ birthday, the 13th studio album "Darkest Hour" was released. So far it reached no. 3 in the DAC charts in Germany and still is climbing.
