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

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 debut video clip for ‘The Beginning’.

Here it is, our debut music video for ‘The Beginning’. This clip was shot in 4 different countries by our good friend Shaun Leyden. You can check out more of his epic work at mintamatics.com. The track was mixed by Aaron Harris, a member of one of our favourite and most inspiring bands ISIS. We would like to extend an enormous hand of gratitude to both Shaun and Aaron for their exceptional work. We can’t thank you guys enough.

Cheers also to: Rob Christie, Tom Anderson, Lance Powell, Rhamsey, Joost, Rob, Robin, Rene, Jip, Boyd Thwaites, Jamie Whitehouse, Andy Lagan, Billy Goddard, Luke Bradshaw, Mark Howden, and everyone else who helped make this happen.
