Today, Canadian Alt-rockers Mother Mother release their internationally anticipated new album INSIDE, the band’s eighth career album and first for Warner Music, via Parlophone Records in the UK. The 14 track song cycle was written and recorded during lockdown and speaks to the isolation of the times and yet each of the songs shine with an infectious optimism. Listen to INSIDE here.
Vocalist, guitarist, songwriter and producer Ryan Guldemond explains, “It’s always a bit surreal and a little scary putting songs out into the world after the long and hidden process of making an album. Inside was written in the time of Covid, a unique time for us all, and directly embodies themes surrounding isolation and hope. As we start to emerge out the other side of this thing, it feels cathartic to share this particular body of work with the world. We hope that our fans find the same peace, healing and joy in listening to these songs as we did while creating them.”
To celebrate the release, the band joined fans last night to premiere the video for their new single ‘Sick of the Silence’, which can be seen here. This follows up on their stunning debut of the song on The Late Late Show with James Corden, which you can view here.
With the release of INSIDE, Mother Mother have also announced their return to the world stage in 2021 and 2022. Shows on multiple continents have sold out or upgraded into larger venues due to demand for tickets over seven months prior to launch including Los Angeles, Chicago, London and an impressive 5-night run in their hometown of Vancouver, BC.
INSIDE was heralded by the infectious, instantly hummable lead single ‘I Got Love’, which quickly climbed to the #1 spot on the Canadian radio charts where it remained for a combined six weeks, while garnering over 6 million streams to date. The band quickly followed with ‘Stay Behind’, ‘Forgotten Souls’ and ‘Pure Love’, which have cumulatively eclipsed 12 million streams in the lead-up to the album’s arrival.
