UK’s heavy rock revelation BLACK MOTH just teamed up with Terrorizer to premiere the live video for their kickass album opener “Tumbleweave”. New record “Condemned To Hope” is due out September 15th via New Heavy Sounds.
Get intoxicated with Black Moth’s “Tumbleweave” NOW
BLACK MOTH‘s long-awaited second full-length “Condemned To Hope” was produced by Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Cramps, Grinderman) and recorded by legendary Leeds engineer Andy Hawkins. “Condemned To Hope” is an album of fearsome drive and clandestine twists, skillfully sidestepping the cliché and heavy-handedness of delivery that often seems fit to destroy contemporary heavy rock’n’roll from the inside out. The artwork was entirely created by prog art legend Roger Dean (Yes, Uriah Heep, Budgie, Vertigo). The official video for first single “Room 13” is also viewable now AT THIS LOCATION.
Formed in Leeds in 2010, BLACK MOTH have quickly established themselves as one of the most exciting underground acts in the UK. Fronted by magnetic vocalist Harriet Bevan, this young and talented quintet was defined as “Electric Wizard meeting Band Of Skulls in a dungeon” by Terrorizer. The release in 2012 of their fiery debut record “The Killing Jar” – a grunge-goth odyssey sprinkled with a variety of influences going from Sabbath to the Melvins, The Stooges to L7 – and their mesmerizing on-stage presence, led them to share the stages with the likes of Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats, Red Fang or Turbowolf.
“Black Moth’s sound is an instantly appealing one, pairing massive, Sabbath-esque riffs with a distinctly anthemic feel and the sultry vocals of frontwoman Harriet Bevan.” Terrorizer
“Combining huge dark riffing with stoner hooks, this is British metal at its finest.” Metalmouth
“Condemned To Hope is a surreal, weird, dark and twisted musical odyssey that Black Moth should rightly be proud of. Watch out folks – Black Moth are ready for Occult Rock Domination and on this form who is going to stand in their way.” The Sludgelord
