Following their storming performance at Desertfest 2018 plus a one-off appearance with stoner rock legends Sleep, Black Moth return to touring action with a vengeance!

The Leeds / London outfit, a dark and heady swirl of garage rock, mind-blowin’ psychedelia and amplified over-drive, have announced shows with ground-breaking US riot rockers L7 – a run of dates in June hitting both the UK and Europe.

Black Moth previously guested with L7 at a London outing back in 2015, and L7’s Donita Sparks recently commented about ‘Anatomical Venus’: “Black Moth is heavy with tunefulness. That is really rare these days. ‘Anatomical Venus’ is the bonus pack, you get both!”

The full list of shows is as follows:-

12 – Electric Ballroom, London (with L7)
13 – La Cigale, Paris, FR (with L7)
15 – Melkweg, Amsterdam, NL (with L7)
16 – Gebaude 9, Cologne, DE (with L7)
17 – So36, Berlin, DE (with L7)
19 – Grunspan, Hamburg, DE (with L7)

Hailed by Mojo Magazine as ‘Black Moth’s best album yet’, ‘Anatomical Venus’ (out now via Candlelight Records) sees the five musicians – vocalist Harriet Hyde, guitarists Jim Swainston & Federica Gialanze’, bassist Dave Vachon and drummer Dom McCready – further honing the various elements of their sound to make the hooks more barbed and the focus more collective.

A new single from the album, ‘Pig Man’, is currently being lined up for release, spotlighting the love that dare not squeal its name. A video has been shot to accompany the track.
