Leeds rock act Black Moth just announced that they will be touring with The Sisters of Mercy in the UK and Europe. The tour will take place in October 2015 and will visit eight cities. Tour dates and ticket info below. This news follows Black Moth releasing their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Condemned to Hope, UK headline dates – including Camden Rocks Festival, tour with Amplifier and support slots to the legendary L7.
In a recent interview, guitarist Dom McCready commented about working on their follow-up to Condemned to Hope:
Yeah, we’ve been jamming out a few things and we’re going to start writing our third album in earnest this summer. And yeah, I think that’s always been the case for us. I really hate the idea of fitting neatly into a genre. I like to combine lots of different influences. If we’ve got an idea, even if it seems a bit weird we’ll still pursue it and we’ll still finish it.
Vocalist Harriet Bevan adds:
I think the only thing I would say in terms of direction; there’s always a kind of wanting to do what you’re doing but more. It’s just taking it to extremes as much as possible. I want it to be kind of weirder, heavier, all the things that we are but more. If that makes sense. And that’s the way we’re hoping to take it.
