Helmet support, album update.

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.HELMET BIGGER

New live track ‘Scythe’.

While we finish the album we’ve also been writing. Here’s a new live track played for the first time at the show on Saturday. Footage courtesy of Will Bloodfarm. Enjoy.

Mothra band update May 2013.

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.

Mothra band update : New live footage, TV interview, merch, and more…

Greetings, here are a couple of new live tracks from a few weeks back, both these songs will feature on the upcoming debut album. A new limited run of tshirts have just been stocked up, head on over to our merch site and grab one while you can. Also here is a recent TV interview that Hugh and Reuben did on TVNZ’s U live, unfortunately this can only be viewed in NZ for some strange reason, but hopefully it will be uploaded to our youtube channel soon. Progress on the album and video number 2 are coming along nicely.
