Need some new music in your life? If you haven’t heard of metal trio Mothman, this is the time to find out more about this heavy hitting band that is sure to make waves on the scene. Unhinged Music had a chance to sit down with the band to discuss its formation, new music from their debut LP, Answers to No-One, and more!
Neshell Hogan: Thanks for taking the time to chat with us! For those readers who may not have heard of you, tell us how Mothman came to be?
Thanks for having us! Mothman was an eventual solution to us three not having played in a metal band together since we were in high school. (Chris) Skiles (Guitar) and Nathan (Helton, bass) lived together for about a year and wrote our first EP and enlisted Andy (Ecchavaria) to play drums.
You guys have just released your debut LP, Answers to No-One. How does it feel to reach this important milestone?
This album is over two years in the making. To have it out finally is a great relief and a huge accomplishment for us.
What was the inspiration behind this album? What are you hoping listeners receive from it?
We wanted to make the heaviest, most chaotic album we could and pull inspiration from a lot of metal/hardcore/grindcore bands we listened to when we were younger. Listeners should feel uneasy.
Can you tell us a little bit about the production that went into making this record?
We tracked drum with our friend at TSTV studios at the University of Texas and did everything else ourselves by way of recording. Answers to No-One was mixed and mastered by Jay Mass and Daniel Florez.
Any upcoming shows in the near future?
Our release show is November 11. We have tour plans for early next year, so watch this space for more details.
