We will be opening for Jakob as they embark on an NZ tour for their new album Sines. It has been 8 years since the release of their critically acclaimed masterpiece Solace, and the long awaited follow up is nothing short of amazing. You can stream it live here, and purchase the album here. We will be supporting them in Auckland on November the 14th at Galatos, and the 15th at Leigh Sawmill. We are also gearing up to master our debut album…it’s coming.

The album is nearing completion, distribution is in place. First offering will be a single/video which will be available digitally and on a very limited 7″ run. The album will be available on double LP, CD, and digitally, dates coming soon. We are playing this Saturday Sep 27th with the Heavy Metal Ninjas before they head off to the Euroblast Fest in Germany. Here is all the info you need : http://www.undertheradar.co.nz/gig/40739/Heavy-Metal-Ninjas-with-Special-Guests-MOTHRA–iSatellite.utr. It was a real honour to open for Earth and kick around with Dylan Carlson and co recently. Thanks to Mystery Girl for their exceptional work as always.
A fresh batch of men’s and women’s tees/hoodies are now in stock, they are very limited so don’t dilly dally. Simply follow the bandcamp link here or hop on over to the bandcamp icon stage right and away you go. Top quality Gildan garments, hand printed moth designs. Thanks for your support, any purchases will be a big help to the mastering and pressing of our debut album. Cheers. Mothra.
We’ll be playing a show in a couple of weeks with none other than Lord of Tigers, the reformed Big Punch, and Bridge. At Auckland’s best sounding venue the Kings Arms Tavern, you’d be silly not to attend. https://www.facebook.com/events/665770433481291/
Our debut album is finally mixed, artwork is complete, just the mastering stage remains. A stupendous amount of work from Hugh Allan has been put into this to finally get it done. The 70 minute album will be released on vinyl, CD, and of course digitally. We will also be releasing a single/video from the album on a limited run of 7″s. Stay tuned.
Happy Christmas and holidays to all. Kick back, grab yourself a cold beverage and relax. We had a great time opening for Helmet here in Auckland the other night, absolutely killer set from them (as expected), great bunch of guys. We were pleased with how our set panned out too, getting the visuals happening was a big plus. After a small break we’ll be back into more mixing of the album, we should have a few tasters coming your way fairly soon. In the meantime, here’s a clip of 3107 from the show and a few photos. Enjoy.
We are pleased to announce we will be opening for the legendary ‘Helmet’ next Saturday December 21st at Auckland’s Galatos. This band is a major influence for us, we grew up listening to albums like Meantime and Betty and it is a real privilege to be sharing the stage with them next weekend. Get your tickets here. In other news the mixing stage of our debut album is well under way, we will be aiming for a release early next year if all goes to plan. Cheers, Mothra.
We’ve been a little quiet on the gigging front lately, but that doesn’t mean work has slowed down on the album. All guitars and drums are now recorded, and only a few songs of bass tracking remain. Rough mixes made by the band have been sent to audio engineer Aaron Harris (ISIS, Palms) to keep him up to date and to give him a feel for the album. A big thanks to Connor Mesa for the recording assistance over the last few months, this guy knows what he’s doing. Here is a link to his recording/production company 103 Audio. Another monumental video has also been completed by Shaun Leyden and will coincide with the album release.
We are looking foward to playing shows again, and have been invited to play on Sat July 20th at Auckland’s Kings Arms with some killer local bands. Details for that soon. In the meantime here’s a picture of Mothra guitarist Hugh Allan with one of his biggest inspirations of all time, Adam Jones from Tool. Ridiculously talented as I’m sure you know, and one of the nicest people you could ever meet. The two shows they played in Auckland recently were nothing short of phenomenal, not that you’d expect anything less.
