Cardinal Fuzz and NoiseAgonyMayhem are proud to bring a reissue (and first time available in Europe) of Moths & Locusts - Helios Rising - This edition is presented with new artwork (Brett Savage). Hailing from the richly collaborative arts community in Nanaimo (Vancouver Island), psych-rock juggernaut Moths & Locusts are a band who have become renowned on their home soil for fearless sonic exploration and brain-melting live shows. Indeed, as guitarist ANGUS BARTER states, MOTHS & LOCUSTS have continued "seeking the groove, the melody, the mood, the riff, the racket," and it is clear that the searching has proven most fruitful with the astounding Helios Rising. As accomplished, muscular and emotionally engaging as the debut remains, the four members of MOTHS & LOCUSTS are today individually and conjointly possessed of such confidence, ambition, and absolute clarity of musical vision that on every level Helios Rising is a triumphant return, and an enormous leap forward.

Thundering behind Barter and Breen's swirling guitars and crunching riffage, DAVE READ's bass ferociously thrashes in thrall to Lemmy one moment, heads off on a slinky raga-style run the next, or else hypnotically throbs in a metronomic groove. In lockstep with Read, drummer DAVE BEAN is viewed with awe by MOTHS & LOCUSTS fans, bandmates and musicians alike. Technically brilliant, yet always rock hard over flashy, Bean also adds Dave Brock-esque vocals to four tracks here.
