MOTHER VULTURE unleash ‘The Wave’ single Festival Shows Added For Summer 20217th July 2021
Hotly tipped Bristol band, MOTHER VULTURE are set to smash your Summer into smithereens with the release of brand new single, The Wave today, 7th July, via Lockdown Rekords. Snag your copy or check out the track HERE.
The band elaborate: “MOTHER VULTURE are back in business and ready to once again tear your eardrums apart with our new single, The Wave. A year of pent up rage has built within the MV camp, and we’re now bursting at the seams and ready to get out and unleash hell upon unsuspecting audiences.”
In early March 2020, having spent 2019 building a solid fan base around their native Bristol/South West area, MOTHER VULTURE were really motoring. Fresh off support slots with both Bokassa & Michael Monroe, our intrepid merauders had just played their 2nd London show to rapturous reviews, picked up a booking agent and secured slots on a bunch of Summer festivals, including a spot headlining the Rising Stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair. Then… the world ground to a Covid halt. Our four horsemen retreated to Bristol, some to key worker jobs, some to no jobs, and had a long hard think.
Ferocious live shows is where MOTHER VULTURE built their reputation, but with no clue to as to when they’d be able to play more shows, the band knuckled down, busied themselves online and kept moving. A live album, ‘Doing It Live’ was pieced together and self-released last July. Hardcore fans snuffled it up and it sold out within the week. Then the lovely people at Fender/Gretsch spotted guitarist Brodie flinging a Gretsch around the stage and sent over a beautiful Brian Setzer Signature model. And in August, the band’s unhinged single, ‘Tell Me’ was licensed direct from the band for a new video game called Rhythmatic.
And so with a light now on the horizon, MOTHER VULTURE are once again coiling up to attack 2021. With The Wave the latest fruit from their sessions at the world renowned Rockfield Studios, the band have a handful of festival appearances lined up as follows, with more live dates set for later this year. Stay tuned for further news soon.
