Summer Leads to Fun

Summer Fun

We have had some fun shows to kick off the Summer fun. First was Canadian Music Week, then we took it into the finals for the Breaking Bands competition, and scored quite well with an impressive panel of judges including Ian D’sa (Billy Talent) & Zack Werner (Canadian Idol, Dragons Den). It was a good run, and we met some cool bands along the way. We also took part in the Soundtrack for the City festival in Oshawa, presented by Music City North (we’ll be participating in the Toronto Kensington series as well later in August). Our good friends This! is a Crisis just released a new EP, and we got to play at the release party this weekend which was also a blast. Great fun in a small, sweaty room full of good vibes.

 

This coming weekend we head to Ottawa to hit up House of TARG  for the first time with our Brothers Suns of Stone (Here’s the event) Heard great things about this place, we’re looking forward to playing there for the first and probably not the last time. The following weekend (31st) we’re back at Homegrown Hamilton for a night with kick ass garage / blues outfit Pete Van Dyk & The Second Hand Band. Our next Toronto show is at the always fun, Horseshoe Tavern on Aug 8th for the Shark Week album release party, along with The Kerouacs & more.

 

We will also be releasing a brand new music video early next month for ‘Top of the World’. Our very own little Grindhouse movie homage. Because grindhouse is the shit and why the hell not? Directed by Lexy Robidoux, and FX artist Tabitha-Leigh Ferguson, who both work respectively in the Horror film universe. Can’t wait to show this one to you! Lots of other cool stuff in the works right now, Updates to come VERY SOON!!

Thank You for reading.

Canadian Music Week

We are pleased to announce that we are part of Toronto’s Canadian Music Week this year. May 6th we’ll be playing with our brothers from Ottawa, Suns of Stone, and on May 7th we’ll be at Sneeky Dee’s (some of the best food in Toronto).

We’re also entered into the CBC song search, if you could take 10 seconds (once a day) to vote for “It’s a Feeling” , it would be appreciated. We can win things and get CBC airplay. We are involved with a ton of other great bands (including some of our friends) so if you are bored check out some of the other music in the competition. You can vote for more than one song a day! http://music.cbc.ca/#!/artists/Mother-Leads We have more awesome show announcments coming soon and we’re currently working out of Satan’s Lovebox Studio, with new material being born and a new EP is in it’s early stages. We’re excited, thank you for reading.

Last of winter, welcoming spring.


We have a handful of cool shows coming up over the next month. Being optimistic about our winter here in Canada, hopefully these will lead us into the early glimpses of spring, and our endevours that are set to follow. We’re playing The Hub in Oshawa Presented by Music City North (https://www.facebook.com/events/763549873752512/) on Feb 26th opening for The Mandevilles  fresh off their European tour. On the 4th of March we’re playing the Moustache Club for New Music Night. Along with Bike Thiefs & Howie Sutherland (https://www.facebook.com/events/799054803493290/). Oshawa is a great music city with a lot of great people and venues dedicated to putting on awesome events, and we love being a part of it.
On March 18th we’re playing one of our favorite venues in Toronto, opening up for a super rad band called Little Foot Long Foot. More details on that TBA.
For the rest of the winter we’re hibernating at our home studio, demoing tracks for an EP we plan to release this year (with a new single and dates in the spring) , along with a string of shows around Ontario in the summer. Keep your eyes peeled for updates!
Until then you can stream ‘Myriad’  under the ‘Music’ tab, or order it and give us some money in return, which is also cool.

Thank You
ML

Robots destory the Horseshoe Tavern.



On feb 19th we’ll be returning to the legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto with some very cool bands. Atom & the Volumes, who we haven’t played with since a couple summers back at a outdoor festival held in Ontario, are a great band to check out. We’re stoked to be sharing a stage together again Event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/840058522719027/
