Next week we begin shooting another music video which will be released next month (June), alongside the 2nd single from ‘Myriad’. Thank you for your continued support.
Over the next month we will be working on the video for said ‘single’ with director Tyler Gordon from Cloud Cover Media. We wanted to keep May relatively clear of shows to focus on filming, and preparing to release the single, and full length soon to follow. We’re very excited to release this material. Many hours went into the studio with Mike Dmitrovich from Voodoo Records with the goal to produce a huge sounding collection of music.
Check our Facebook page or check back here on next Friday (May 9th) at 6PM to see a first glimpse of the artwork, and album title. On May 23rd we’ll be returning to the Moustache Club in Oshawa to play with The Bleeding Lights and more. Their new rooftop patio is supposed to open that weekend… and after the winter we just had here in Canada, I KNOW you want to take advantage of that. The following night (May 24th) we’re hitting Colonel Mustards with Drakefield. Fronted by our good friend Brock Buckley, they reek pure adrenaline and ass kicking intensity.
More upcoming dates can be found on our live appearances page. We’ll have more details on the next single/music video very soon. Stay tuned.
First off, we would like to address all of the cool people that we shared the stage with/met during this last tour. After Hamilton, the next couple dates were with The Ballroom Babies, easily one of the best bands that we’ve played with, or heard. The first show was at the Bovine Sex Club in Toronto. This was home city stop on the tour, and it was exactly what we hoped. The following night was PK Creek in Mississauga. Very cool place, great crowd. Both nights The BallRoom Babies blew us away. After that we played The Moustache Club in Oshawa Joined by Hairy Holler & Wake. Read more after the picture!
We launched the tour in Windsor, the Ambassador Bridge a stones throw away. The Dominion House Tavern (or DH) is reminiscent of old house party shows, with it’s multi-room layout and staircases. They host regular pub crawls and even have a full fledged volleyball court in the back yard for the sunshine seasons. The club is known for rock music, and that seems to be what goes best for the locals. We even had one enthusiastic woman ask to hear our cover of Pearl Jams “MFC” twice in a row. She was quite convincing. We did it.
Well 2013 was a really great and productive year here at the Mother Leads camp. We released our first single, our first music video and even went on our very first tour with our good friends Womb. What made the year so great though was seeing all of our family, friends, and fans come out and support us every night. Your appreciation and support is what keeps us striving towards our goals as a band and we truly thank you all for that. We have a lot more planned for 2014 including another tour for early spring and another music video as well as many others. But firstly, we’re going to be kicking the year off with The DGB in their hometown of Lindsay at Coach & Horses.
Firstly, we’d like to thank everyone who came out and partied with us during our tour. We’re thinking of hitting the road again early next year with a bigger and longer run. Check out the bands we played with over the month:
- Drifters Faith
- Slaves to the Groove
- Trust Funds
- Jailbait Lucy
- Time Giant
- District Down
- King Tut
- John Boom & The Jellyfish
- Pete Van Dyke & The Second Hand Band
- The Great Machine
- Lion Under Stars
- And of course, Womb with whom we lived with for the entire month on the road.
Hey, guys and gals the tour has been great so far. We first stopped in Montreal and caught a set of our good friend Syd Perry at the Crobar. Then the next night we performed at Cafe Chaos, a wicked little venue in the heart of Montreal. We stayed in a little hotel for the night and made our way to Ottawa the next morning. In Ottawa we performed at The Atomic Rooster for the first time, we also had a chance to play with TimeGiant, a hard rocking Toronto-based band that we’ve been anxious to play with for a while. A special guest and an old friend, Michael Grewal came up to perform with Womb, throwing his own rendition of keys over their gypsy grunge sound, making for a very special treat to top off the night.
First stop, Montreal!
