A Leeds band are working with Grinderman’s Jim Sclavunos on their début album.

Black Moth, formed three years ago and recent signings to the New Heavy Sounds label, are currently recording at 2Fly Studios in Sheffield.  Sclavunos, who is producing the LP, adds: “[Their] music hearkens back to the balls-out hard rock of my misspent youth, but with a fresh up-to-date attitude. Their uniquely 21st century sneering twist on the ‘classic rock’ sound – seamlessly blending metal, psychedelia, punk and thrash – immediately won me over.”

 

In response, the band are excited to work with Sclavunos: “The number of influential bands he’s been a part of is quite something, and ‘Grinderman 2’ is one of the most innovative albums created in recent years. We know he’ll inspire us to make a great record.”

 

A video taster for the as-yet-untitled Black Moth album, filmed by James Rhodes of The Blind Club, can be seen below; and you can check out Black Moth’s website, at the wonderful URL name www.themothpit.co.uk, here.
