Support for MONO and 7″ single release show coming up!
Hugely stoked to announce we will be opening for the mighty Mono on the last show of their upcoming AUS/NZ tour, Dec 10 at Auckland’s Kings Arms with Greenfog. Thanks to LIFE IS NOISE for making it happen. Mono are legends of the post-rock genre, an incredible band not to be missed. Get your tickets here. But before this monumental show we’ll be playing a release show for our first official release, a 7″ single from our forthcoming album. This will be limited to 150 copies in total. never to be pressed again. It will feature a special b-side track not on the album and free digital download. We will be joined by some great local acts Proton Beast, Shepherds of Cassini, and Mice on Stilts. Check out the event right….here. Also here are 2 track previews of the album…Escapism, and Corridor.
Mothraband vinyl fundraising campaign.
Here is our fundraising campaign to get our album pressed on vinyl. This is effectively a ‘pre-order’ for the album on vinyl, rather than a general fundraiser with a whole lot of funding options.
Up until now we have funded everything ourselves, including the recording, mixing, production, and mastering of the album. The pressing costs to produce a minimum run of 250 double 12″ LPs, plus shipping costs from the US and duty on top of that isn’t cheap, but with enough pre-orders we can make it happen. Our goal is to get 120 pre-orders, you can also make a small donation to help the cause.
This will be a double 12″ LP, on coloured wax with 8 page colour booklet and gatefold. The cost of each unit is $50 NZ plus shipping, please note the prices are converted to US dollars. The first 20 will be signed and the first 50 will receive a private link to another song off the album while the campaign is underway. Here’s a link to the track we put up a couple of weeks back https://soundcloud.com/mothrasound/escapism Cheers for the support! – Mothra.
