Black Moth rose from the Leeds underground scene, taking their trash culture fixations and their love for Stooges squalor and Sabbath sulphur to create an onslaught of monumental riff sorcery and serpentine grace.
With Harriet Bevan's biting and beguiling voice leading the charge, the Moths effortlessly transcend their influences to arrive at a nefarious and turbulent brew. Equal parts horror movie atmosphere, thunderous drive, big riffs and maverick spark.
Having played Leeds, Reading and Download, as well as touring the UK and Europe, the band have been stamping their live authority on support slots with Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, Red Fang, Turbowolf as well as a headline European tour at the end of 2014.
With the arrival of their critically acclaimed second album, "Condemned to Hope," produced like their first by Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Grinderman, The Cramps), the band are set to step it up a gear, with a series of dates with the frankly awesome Amplifier, followed by an appearance at Camden Rocks festival, topped off with 2 shows supporting the recently reunited L7.

New single ‘Looner’ released this week is the second track to be lifted from Black Moth's, 'Condemned To Hope'. It displays the heady fusion of big riffs, hard rock hooks and provocative vocals that sets Black Moth apart from many of their contemporaries. Directed by Ben Foley the video for ‘Looner’ is now online though be warned it is NSFW:
