NEWS: MOTHER MOTHER set to release THE STICKS on September 18th


After an exciting year of virtually non-stop globetrotting, Vancouver’s Juno nominated art-pop quintet MOTHER MOTHER wasted no time getting back into recording mode. The result – the band’s fourth studio effort, THE STICKS, due on September 18, 2012 on Last Gang Records. The first single Let’s Fall In Love hits radio today – have a listen here. Along with the new single, fans will be able to purchase the album’s title track from iTunes tomorrow, and pre-order the album with an exclusive b-side track titled All Gone.

Recorded during the winter of 2012 in Mother Mother’s hometown of Vancouver, and co-produced by the group’s own frontman/principle songwriter Ryan Guldemond and producer/engineer Ben Kaplan (Shakira, Mudvayne, Gallows), THE STICKS upholds Mother Mother’s tradition of tri-harmony vocal arrangements and dynamic instrumentation, while making for the group’s most eclectic and rich album to date. The album’s lead off single Let’s Fall In Love, an ironic homage to tunesmith Cole Porter, is a moody yet epic song about the foolhardy games we play in the arena of romance: "Stupid does it, ugly do it… Let's fall in love". Check out an exclusive performance from here.   

THE STICKS follows a whirlwind year of near constant touring in support of Mother Mother’s previous release, the critically acclaimed EUREKA. The album produced three Top 20 alternative radio singles, including the infectious smash hit The Stand which peaked at #3 at Canadian alternative (#5 at modern rock), and yielded a Juno-nominated music video. Internationally, Mother Mother’s reception is already mirroring that of their homeland’s, indicative by the recognition they’ve garnered from institutions such as BBC Radio, MTV, and tastemaker publications Q, Spin and Paste among others.

Featuring the multi-talented line up of Ryan Guldemond (vocals/guitar), Molly Guldemond (vocals/synth), Jasmin Parkin (vocals/keys), Jeremy Page (bass/horns) and Ali Siadat (percussion/electronics), Mother Mother’s unique blend of clever lyrics, stunning vocals, quirky arrangements and a multi-dimensional sound, both on stage and in the studio, has amassed the group a reputation that has brought about their celebration as indie darlings, all the while endearing to the mainstream. The release of THE STICKS to the world promises to maintain that delicate balance for the group while poising them for far greater milestone accomplishments and accolades, both domestically and abroad.  

Get ready to fall in love with Mother Mother!
