MOTHRA was created by Liam and Allan in November 2004 as a bass and drums duo, and was quickly transformed into a 3-piece in February 2005 when Karla brought synth and vocals into the mix. Drawing on a broad range of influences including indie rock, punk, hardcore, metal, and prog, MOTHRA has found a sound to call its own. Full of energy and bursting at the seams, MOTHRA rides a fine line between chaos and beauty.
Hard work, dedication, and focus have paid off for MOTHRA since their inception one year ago. The band recorded their self-titled debut at The Hive Creative Labs studio in Vancouver with Colin Stewart (Hot Hot Heat, Radio Berlin, Black Mountain), which has received outstanding reviews. MOTHRA has played shows extensively in the past 2 years, both locally and throughout Canada. The band played a showcase for Canadian Music Week in Toronto in March 2006, and most recently toured throughout Canada this past fall, playing 25 shows from coast to coast over a seven week period. The energy, passion and technical wizardry demonstrated by MOTHRA in their live show has turned heads in the Vancouver music scene and beyond, resulting in the development of an ever-growing fanbase. Above all, the band will continue to concentrate on what is most important - the creation and performance of unique, genuine, energy-packed music that they believe in.
