Mother Feather streams new single, “Snakebite”, via Guitar World

– October 1st, 2018 –

“…among the best material the band has released so far.”The Deli

“…glam rock mixed with fiery garage-pop, blending the visual approach of classic glam rock with proto punk influences.”The Punk Site

Adding more fuel to the fire, NYC’s Mother Feather is releasing their second pulsing single today in anticipation of their sophomore album. The out-for-blood “Snakebite” makes its debut exclusively via Guitar World: guitarworld.com, clocking in at under two minutes without a second to spare. Explains lead singer Ann Courtney, “An homage to the evil impulse and the speed of its ambush, I wrote ‘Snakebite’ in a hot 20 minutes. With its production setting it in the cinematic imagination of an 80s punk cult-film, this is the riotous theme song for your psycho ex-girlfriend with an axe to grind.”

New York City’s Mother Feather have perfected the formula to pay homage to the roots of punk’n’roll and heavy rock injected with their own brand of the divine feminine, and since their debut album have been keeping the audience on their toes. The evolution of their high-energy “pop cock rock” surges forward this November 2nd with their sophomore album Constellation Baby, out via Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records, and available for pre-order now here: metalblade.com/motherfeather – where you can also stream the previous single, “Red Hot Metal”.

Mother Feather announces new album, ‘Constellation Baby’

– September 6th, 2018 –

Stream scorching first single “Red Hot Metal” now

New York City’s Mother Feather have perfected the formula to pay homage to the roots of punk’n’roll and heavy rock injected with their own brand of the divine feminine, and since their debut album have been keeping the audience on their toes. The evolution of their high-energy “pop cock rock” surges forward this November with their sophomore album Constellation Baby, out via Metal Blade Records / Blacklight Media.

The first taste of the new Mother Feather comes in the form of lead single “Red Hot Metal”, now available to stream and download. Just like you’d expect from the name, the track embodies the smoldering nature of the NYC five-piece, radiating controlled adrenaline, highlighted by the production of Grammy-nominated Joshua Valleau. Explains lead singer Ann Courtney, “‘Red Hot Metal is a deathmatch wrestling event of the anxious mind. It’s a fever dream of some of the darkest hours writing the new songs for the album, as I fought to keep my grip on my sanity and the wheel of an old – but fast – red car.”


“Red Hot Metal” indeed gives the listener a vibrant mental image – and Brooklyn Bazaar will witness their glittery, smoky stage presence later this month. Mother Feather will be opening up for metalhead disco-rockers Tragedy this September 29 – for more info, please visit: facebook.com/events/260967624482743/

Mother Feather‘s Constellation Baby will be available November 2 via Metal Blade / Blacklight Media, and is available for pre-order now at: metalblade.com/motherfeather – where you can also stream “Red Hot Metal”.

More on Mother Feather:
New York City. The lights go down, Mother Feather stride onto the stage. The bass frequency clarion call that kicks off their opening song charges its way through the packed room, a ripple of electricity riding off its back. Vocalist Ann Courtney steps to the microphone and purrs the first line: “I need your full attention…” And she’s got it. What follows, every single time the quintet stand before an audience, is pure rock and roll catharsis, for Courtney, for her band mates, and for every individual crammed into the room.

Mother Feather made their introduction with two independently released EPs, which were then released as their 2016 self-titled debut full-length on Metal Blade. Now, the band makes their Metal Blade return with their sophomore album Constellation Baby, an extension on the band’s self-styled pop cock rock, with catharsis bleeding through the speakers in the form of gritty, garage-y glamour. Their songs marry the scratchy yet catchy, swaggering and dangerous sounds of The Stooges, New York Dolls or The MC5 with the playfulness, pop sensibilities and exuberance of the finest 90s alt-rock, a little upbeat 50s rock n’ roll thrown in for good measure. Combined with Courtney’s overtly optimistic, inspiring lyrics, the band deliver an energizing and irresistible concoction that captures the attitude and beating heart of New York City on its best day, empowering everyone in their path.

Of course, the band is far bigger than Courtney alone, having surrounded herself with her best friends, who happen to be extremely talented musicians. Every member plays an intrinsic part when bringing the songs to life, both on record and when unleashed on stage. She affectionately refers to guitarist Chris Foley, bassist Matt Basile and drummer Gunnar Olsen as “three beasts”, all of them bringing so much attitude, energy and personality to the songs. Then there’s keyboardist/vocalist Elizabeth Carena, only ever “Lizzie” to Ann, whose interplay with Courtney is one of the most electrifying facets of their performances. “She’s my best friend, my hype woman, and we support and play off each other. I think it’s such an exciting, empowering thing to see two women on stage supporting each other and totally committed to pop cock rock. It’s an overtly feminist statement. I get excited when I see women with their eyes lit up in the crowd.”

Still, as thrilling as the album is, when it comes to Mother Feather all roads lead back to their incomparable live show. While some may look at the costumes, the makeup and the choreography and see the band as heirs to the crown of the likes of David Bowie and the mystique-chasing glam rock stars of the 70s, the last thing the band want is separation between artist and audience, the connection between them integral. “When I’m on stage it’s not a persona. Mother Feather is not a character. Mother Feather is the real me. Who I am off that stage is more of a persona,” she states plainly. “To make that connection with people you must commit, wholly, and that means being present in every breath and dance move. That’s where the space is, to be wild and crazy and nasty and vulnerable, the space to be terrifying. I want to see everything in a rock show. I want the horror, I want the beauty, I want the fun, I want it to be garish. I want it to be wild, I want it to be loud, I want the drama, I want the camp, I want it to be stripped bare. I want to have the whole world for dinner. So that’s what we try to do, every single time.”

Good Tiger announces “Salt of the East Coast” headline tour with Icarus The Owl & Megosh

– February 20th, 2018 –

Debuts at #2 on Billboard “Top New Artist Albums” with sophomore album ‘We Will All Be Gone’

Rock quintet Good Tiger is thrilled to announce that they will be hitting the road for their “Salt Of The East Coast” headline tour with Icarus The Owl and Megosh. The run kicks off on March 31st in Richmond, and includes stops in Atlanta, Baton Rouge, and Chicago. For a full list of dates or to purchase tickets, please visit: goodtiger.co

In addition, the band will be performing at the Blacklight Media Showcase in NYC’s Gramercy Theatre on March 8th, as well as touring as direct support for Protest The Hero on their Fortress 10th Anniversary Tour beginning on April 19th.

Good Tiger had their strongest opening week to date with the release of their sophomore record We Will All Be Gone, out now via Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records. The album debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top New Artist Albums Chart, as well as #3 on Current Hard Music Albums. We Will All Be Gone is also currently #9 on Top New Artist Albums Consumption, #15 on Current Rock Albums, #50 on Top Current Albums, #59 on Billboard Top Albums, #76 on Current Digital Albums, and #95 on Digital Albums.

We Will All Be Gone is available for purchase at metalblade.com/goodtiger. We Will All Be Gone has recently been heralded online and in print by Alternative Press, Outburn Magazine, Modern Drummer, New Noise Magazine, Cryptic Rock, and more.

Blending their influences in a manner that defies lazy classification sets Good Tiger apart from their contemporaries, imbuing everything they do with a distinctive sound and feel, and with We Will All Be Gone, Good Tiger have dramatically built upon their stunning debut, 2015′s A Head Full Of Moonlight.

Comprised of guitarists Derya “Dez” Nagle and Joaquin Ardiles, bassist Morgan Sinclair, drummer Alex Rudinger, and vocalist Elliot Coleman, Good Tiger has raised the stakes across the board – every track on We Will All Be Gone has a definitive character of its own, and none stay in a single gear, all of them dynamic and textured as they evoke various tones and moods. Tracking at Middle Farm Studios in southwest England, the band recruited producer Forrester Savell (Karnivool/Dead Letter Circus), and engineer/mixer Adam “Nolly” Getgood (Periphery/Animals As Leaders). “We worked with Nolly on the last album, we had a great working relationship, and wanted to explore that further in a more developed situation,” Dez explains. “Forrester has made some of our favorite albums, and is someone we could trust steering the ship. Having self-produced for so long it can be at times quite difficult to let go, so it was important we found people we could fully entrust to help create the album we wanted to make.”

Blacklight Media Records announces its very first label showcase (hosted by Jose Mangin) in New York City

– January 16th, 2018 –

Featuring Candiria, Gozu, Good Tiger, Mother Feather, Oni, and Eyes Of The Sun

On March 8th, Blacklight Media Records will throw a label showcase (hosted by Jose Mangin!) at the Gramercy Theatre in New York. Featuring Blacklight Media artists Gozu, Good Tiger, Mother Feather, Oni, and Eyes Of The Sun, all leading up to very special guest headliner Metal Blade Records artist Candiria! This is one show not to be missed! Tickets will go on-sale this Friday (January 19th) at: concerts1.livenation.com

Blacklight Media Records’ Chris Santos comments: “I could not be more excited to announce the very first Blacklight Media Showcase! To say this is a lifelong dream come true doesn’t begin to articulate how proud I am of this show and more importantly, how proud I am of the bands who call Blacklight Media and Metal Blade Records their home. This is truly a once in a lifetime show for all of us and for all the amazing fans of these talented artists. Having Jose Mangin as the Master of Ceremonies is icing on the cake! We can’t wait to celebrate a night of crushing multi-genre Metal with you on March 8. Long Live Metal!”

About Blacklight Media Records:
Blacklight Media is a hard rock and heavy metal label founded in February 2016 by Chris Santos, executive chef and managing partner of New York City restaurants VANDAL, The Stanton Social and Beauty & Essex, in partnership with Brian Slagel, founder of Metal Blade Records. Blacklight has a distinct focus on releasing music that possesses an extensive amount of melody, mixed with heavy ebbs and flow.

About Candiria:
Since their inception in 1992, the name Candiria has become synonymous with the kind of experimentation and genre-bending not often associated with the hard/metalcore community, a testament to the band’s skillful musicianship and intelligent sonic aesthetic. Born in Brooklyn, NY, they have been lauded for their ability to mesh decidedly different styles in a seamless way. They were named one of the “10 Most Important Bands in Metal” by Rolling Stone back in 1999 for consistently releasing music that challenges listeners, thrills critics, and – most importantly – attracts a legion of dedicated, diehard fans. Their latest release While They Were Sleeping certainly continues that legacy, with Pitchfork hailing the band as one of “the most convincingly flexible acts that metal and hardcore have ever seen.” It’s a concept album that tells the tale of a failed musician who rises up against a NYC monarchy. To preview and purchase While They Were Sleeping, please visit: metalblade.com/candiria

About Gozu:
Formed in 2010, Gozu has released one EP and three full-lengths to-date, and are currently writing their fourth studio album, set for a 2018 release via Blacklight Media. Fronted by Marc Gaffney on vocals and guitar, Doug Sherman on guitar, Joe Grotto on bass, and Mike Hubbard on drums, the band’s sound is tailor-made for blasting out the car speakers via international radio airwaves. Having already been aired on national television (USA) via MTV (‘Road Rules’, ‘Dudesons’, ‘Real World’), NBC, and NASCAR, Gozu aims to take their critical and commercial success to new heights on their upcoming debut for Blacklight Media, with worldwide touring to follow. Previously, the group shared the stage with the likes of St. Vitus, Pallbearer, Lo Pan, Storm of Light, Helmet, Elder, Mos Generator, and Fu Manchu in the States, as well as Yob, Church of Misery and Kvelertak in Europe at Roadburn (Netherlands) and DesertFest Berlin (Germany). 2018 will surely see Gozu back on the road again, and at the forefront of the heavy rock and metal world.

About Good Tiger:
Comprised of guitarists Derya “Dez” Nagle and Joaquin Ardiles, bassist Morgan Sinclair, drummer Alex Rudinger, and vocalist Elliot Coleman, Good Tiger has raised the stakes across the board on their upcoming sophomore effort, We Will All Be Gone. Every track on the album has a definitive character of its own, and none stay in a single gear, all of them dynamic and textured as they evoke various tones and moods. Tracking at Middle Farm Studios in southwest England, the band recruited producer Forrester Savell (Karnivool/Dead Letter Circus), and engineer/mixer Adam “Nolly” Getgood (Periphery/Animals As Leaders). “We worked with Nolly on the last album, we had a great working relationship, and wanted to explore that further in a more developed situation,” Dez explains. “Forrester has made some of our favorite albums, and is someone we could trust steering the ship. Having self-produced for so long it can be at times quite difficult to let go, so it was important we found people we could fully entrust to help create the album we wanted to make.” To preview and pre-order We Will All Be Gone, please visit: metalblade.com/goodtiger

About Mother Feather:
Mother Feather will release their upcoming album in 2018 via Blacklight Media. “The newest songs for the album were written last fall and winter in the midst and aftermath of the US presidential election,” Courtney comments. “The political climate and outcome were personally devastating, but it also re-ignited my sense of purpose. I locked myself away to write, face my depression, and stare down some uncomfortable feelings. Truthfully, I went to some very dark and lonely places. So there’s a lot of fever – and intimacy – in the new music. When I emerged from my self-exile, I discovered my band waiting for me on the other side, so there’s exuberance and catharsis there too. It’s good to have friends, ya know?! Together, we worked to develop the songs and shape them into some of Mother Feather‘s best, most eclectic work yet.” To preview and purchase Mother Feather‘s previous release – the band’s self-titled debut – please visit: metalblade.com/motherfeather

About Oni:
With their influences rooted in progressive metal, Oni‘s sound can be compared to the genre’s heavy hitters – The Human Abstract, Protest The Hero and Between The Buried And Me – yet they remain truly unique. With Jake Oni handling vocal duties, Martin Andres and Brandon White on guitar, Chase Bryant on bass and Joe Greulich on drums, they are also perhaps the first metal band to feature a xylosynth player, Johnny D, which adds an intriguing dynamic to the nine tracks found on their debut, Ironshore. Produced by Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, Gojira), the album takes listeners on an absorbing ride that provides ample opportunity for head-banging, singing along and deep introspection. To preview and purchase Ironshore, please visit: metalblade.com/oni

About Eyes Of The Sun:
Eyes Of The Sun was conceived in early 2007 by bassist/vocalist Jeff Blanchard. Long-time friend Miguel De Jesus Jr. joined the ranks with Jeff a few months later on guitar. Within a few years, and after a couple of past members on second guitar and drums, Chris O’Neil joined as the permanent drummer. As a trio, they performed countless shows over the past 10 years, delivering their unique brand of doom metal – which leaves listeners with a range of emotions, that the band themselves then experience and extract from. The band explains: “It is known throughout the laws of science and nature that the sun creates and sustains life…Now it stands witness to the atrocities, depletion and vile consumption manifested by mankind, which it originally sustained life for. In our way, we portray what is seen through the Eyes Of The Sun.”
