Moon Tooth To Return To The Stage Following Nick Lee’s Battle With Limbic Encephalitis, Premiere “Grip On The Ridge” Music Video

Moon Tooth have announced that they will be performing at The Brooklyn Monarch in Brooklyn, NY on May 20. The show will be the band’s first since guitarist Nick Lee underwent a battle with Limbic Encephalitis.

Lee commented:

“The way myself and the rest of Moon Tooth see this situation is we could hide from the mystery brain disease for another six months, a year, six years; or we could face it directly this Spring and do what we do best, which is play a killer live show alongside some of our best friends.

We’ve been working our asses off to get back to tip top shape and I have been fortunate enough to have the most incredible support base a person could hope for in blood, family, and health, so let’s hang May 20th and truly make up for some lost time!”

In other news, the band have also premiered a new video for their song “Grip On The Ridge.“ That track is from the group’s latest album “Phototroph.” Vocalist John Carbone had the following to say about the song:

“Conceptually, ‘Grip on the Ridge‘ deals with something that will undoubtedly be revisited in future recordings of ours. While writing this record, my family was dealing with the sudden and unexpected passing of my Uncle. With my family being as tight-knit as we are, personally experiencing that and especially watching my cousins endure it after having already lost their Mother ten years prior was more terrible than I can convey. The song reflects not only a person having to face that horror, but also the monumental question of ‘Where do we go from here?’ It reflects the desperate grasp for the will TO go on.”
