We are deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Chi Cheng, original bassist and founding member of the Deftones. He has no doubt helped to influence countless bands like ourselves since the Deftones began. Farewell Chi, our thoughts go out to your family and friends. Much respect. Mothra.

Our video clip for The Beginning will hit the air waves of NZ TV this week starting with C4’s Fade to Black show, 10 pm Mondays. Juice TV and Triangle will also be playing the clip in the near future. We will be playing a show at the Kings Arms (Auckland) this Friday with Cobra Khan and Cripple Mr Onion. See you there, if you live in Auckland.
Late notice but we’ll be opening for the Heavy Metal Ninjas and New Way Home at Auckland’s Kings Arms tonight, as part of their nationwide tour. We are stoked to be sharing the stage with both these bands. Doors are at 8pm, we’ll hit the stage at 9.
If you can’t make this one be sure to check out our show on the 24th of August with Cobra Khan and Cripple Mr Onion, also at the Kings Arms. If all goes to plan we’ll have a full blown projector running for the first time with imagery from Shaun Leyden, the creator of our debut video ‘The Beginning‘. A new limited run of ‘gas mask’ merch will also be available.
Here is a link to the latest blog post by Aaron Harris which features our debut video amongst other news regarding his new band Palms, the Deftones, Melvins, and other bands he is mixing. http://aaronharris-audio.com/2012/08/02/palms-melvins-deftones-and-more/
And finally, a shot of James laying down some chops.
We have a few 2nds left over from our last run of merch, and up for grabs is an XL graphite top quality hoodie, and a tshirt in either M/L or XL. To be in to win go to the facebook page www.facebook.com/mothrasound and write a comment, 2 names will be drawn out of a hat Monday evening March 21st, one for a tshirt, and one for the hoodie. The winners can pick it up from our show next Thursday at the Kings Arms or if you cant make it we can post it to ya for free if you are in NZ.
Well we decided to move to a much better screen printer than the unprofessional and slow ‘4 your brand’. If you need some quailty and professional screen printing done in Auckland, go here http://www.localtraffic.co.nz/ We are in good hands now and will have men’s coloured tees, hoodies, and woman’s tees up for grabs real soon. Also we have a show lined up in late March at Auckland’s best venue the ‘Kings Arms Tavern.’ Details coming soon.
Greetings, we’ll be playing at the Thirsty Dog on Auckland’s Krd on Jan 15 with our pals Big Punch and also Thrash City Victims. We’ll have brand new tees for sale and stickers too. Choice!
$10 on the door.
