It’s been a busy time for us here in camp Mothra, we’ve had a great response to the release of Decision Process. Out now on double coloured vinyl, limted to 250 on clear aqua and black hole coloured wax with free digi download. Well over half are already gone. You can grab a copy right here at our bandcamp, or pick one up from your favourite NZ music shop very soon. Also available on CD and digital download.
Here are a number of reviews worth checking out :
Chin chin – Mothra.
Stoked to announce we will be opening for the legendary High on Fire on the final show of their AUS/NZ tour. Local act Reaving is also on the bill. Last time they played here with the Melvins was absolute chaos. Thanks to Life is Noise for bringing them over. Get your tickets from the link below while you still can. http://www.undertheradar.co.nz/ticket/5025/High-On-Fire.utr)
Here is the official teaser for our forthcoming debut album :
It was a great night opening for Mono at the Kings Arms a few weeks back, amazing band and we were honoured to share the stage with them. Here’s a few pics from the show. We have another great support to announce very soon.
If you are looking for that perfect xmas gift for someone this just might be it, a brand new white Mothra tee on Gildan cotton and a copy of our limited edition Splinters 7″ for $35 plus shipping. Check it out here.
We have also finally got hold of the test presses for our album, not far off now! Thanks for all your patience.
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.
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.
