Mothership release Live Over Freak Valley today through Ripple Music | Confirm Dimebash 2016 appearance on 22nd January
“Such a killer find, man. Can’t wait to see them live!” Dom Lawson, Metal Hammer
“They represent everything that is great with rock and roll from everything in the past, to everything in the future and everything in between. Mothership is the future of rock and roll. These guys are just going to keep getting bigger and bigger. You watch.” The Evil Engineer
After the rerelease of their momentous second album and a storming start to 2015, Mothership – the hard rocking supersonic/intergalactic Texan trio – have today unleashed their brand new live album, Live Over Freak Valley on Ripple Music.
Recorded at their debut European appearance at the iconic German rock festival, brothers Kyle and Kelly Juett along with Judge Smith have captured their steaming hot stew of UFO and Iron Maiden inspired metal; southern Molly Hatchet and ZZ Top swagger, and deathly Sabbathian doom. A concoction that should by all accounts prove too heavy to handle on record, but as fans will soon discover, Live Over Freak Valley will deliver the filth and fury of the full Mothership live experience.
Since 2013 the band has travelled non-stop, playing live across the USA, Canada, United Kingdom and Europe; taking to festival stages, nightclubs, and under the sun at whatever motorcycle parties they could find. They are for all intents and purposes a heavy rock juggernaut that has only just begun to tear a hole in the cosmos. And guess what? They have no plans of slowing down for anyone.
Next week Mothership take to the stage to open The Monster Energy Ride For Dimebash 2016 benefit honoring late Pantera “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott at Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood. The show will feature appearances from Pantera, Slayer, Alice In Chains, Black Label Society and many more. For more info on the show click here.
