Let there be sound, let there be light, let there be drums, let there be guitar… let there be rock!
Awww… the nostalgia of a great time when music gradually plunged into people’s brain giving a new meaning to what life is, giving a new ambient to a prosperous era, creating a history, a new beginning to an evolution of entities that slowly rooted in our feet and marked us as a generation, a crowd connected by the extreme joy of listening to powerful music… rock!
Just give me a beer, light me a cig and start the engines of this ship cause I feel in the top of the world right now! Rock lives and lives hard with the Texas based extreme trio Mothership combining ancient souls of 70´s heavy rock with fiery, clever, fresh and tasteful solos that will rip your head off.
“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” There are bands that are like family for sharing a way of life, for sharing one path in common, the same interests and then there are bands that are family for sharing the same blood, the same genes, the same vocation! This is the history of a family united by blood and united by the desire of keeping the tradition of classic rock active with a modern flavor in our modern days. God (of rock) bless you!
The musical rampage started before 2010 with Juett brothers (Kyle on bass and his younger brother Kelley on guitar) and their father John to help get the ´ship off the ground. Raised in a home full of 70´s-era record collection, the perfect environment to grow the palate for music, the brothers began to compose songs immersed in the frenetic and raw vibe of good and timeless old school rock n´roll. With amazing live shows and the band showing crazy performances with was easy to gain notoriety. Knowing that the presence of the family patriarch was temporary, John himself helped his boys find his replacement, and in late 2011, Judge Smith joined the crew to hammer away on the skins. In early 2012, Mothership entered Crystal Clear Studios with Wo Fat mastermind Kent Stump manning the boards and by mid-year, the band self-released their debut album. The debut release drew attention to California-based Heavy Rock label, Ripple Music and after a successful year of traveling throughout Texas, Mothership officially dubbed Ripple Music as its Home Port and began plotting a course for their first U.S Tour early this year.
2013 starts really well to the band with Mothership and Ripple Music joining forces to re-release in 12, February the immense self-titled album on CD (includes lyrics) and LP (packages to include an 11” x 17” poster and download cards).
“Mothership” is an eight-track album that does justice to bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, ZZ Top, Thin Lizzy, AC/DC, in fact not only does justice but also gives to the listener a new experience with a futuristic sound brought in the ship by the outer space to delight your deepest desires of binding new with old. This massive work exteriorizes catchy hard riffing, insane solos of the NWOBHM-era, powerful drumming and imposing lyrics that are waiting for you to join the flight! You can´t miss it!
On Saturday, January 19th at 8:00 a.m. PST, Ripple Music will begin selling limited edition copies of Mothership on purple splattered vinyl with signed poster. This will be limited to 100 copies so set your alarm clocks and visit the link below to order.

One melee with the words, ideas and its paradoxes... albuns that are news, the reviews at "HeavyHardMetalmania.net", always with its watermark, Pedro Ribeiro, with love for beer... sorry, music from an early age, he studied piano and singing from 7 to 14 years, then, devoted himself to the study of the guitar for 5 years. "The wisdom is found in the extremes, all extreme Metal here!"
