Moon Tooth Digitally Release Their “Violent Grief Sessions”

Moon Tooth have released their recent livestream set, “Violent Grief Sessions,” in digital outlets. The release features eight tracks including a cover of Fiona Apple‘s “Fast As You Can.“ Guitarist Nick Lee specifically commented on that track:

“I’ve wanted to cover ‘Fast As You Can‘ from the moment I first heard it but the thing that really convinced me it had to happen was a live video that came as a bonus for the ‘Idler Wheel‘ album. The chords for that verse riff always struck me as being very heavy and her vocal delivery is always so raw and in your face. I originally wanted to do it as a loud, full-band Moon Tooth cover (which maybe can still happen, who knows?) but when we were talking about covers for the live acoustic session it was the perfect opportunity to give it a shot. The most fun part of preparing this acoustic set for me was improvising solos over that instrumental verse at the end.”

Moon Tooth Premiere “Six Of Swords” Video

Moon Tooth have premiered a new video for their new song “Six Of Swords.“ This track is from the band’s new acoustic EP “Violent Grief: Acoustic Selectionss,“ which will be released tomorrow (July 31). John Carbone commented:

“The EP was a good chance for us to show our versatility. We love playing heavy rock n roll but as artists, our goal is always to explore without limits. ‘Six Of Swords‘ speaks to the stage of grief when a person must choose to heal. Suffering is necessary and beneficial, but a time comes when one has to leave old wounds behind. It’s something that can be just as difficult as the initial trauma itself.”

Moon Tooth Sign With Pure Noise Records, Premiere “Through Ash” Music Video

Moon Tooth have signed a new deal with Pure Noise Records and are planning to re-release their latest album “Crux” through the label on November 15. With this, news, the band have also shared a new video for “Through Ash”:

Nick Lee said the following about signing with Pure Noise:

“Moon Tooth is ecstatic to announce we have signed with Pure Noise Records. From day one the four members of this band have treated our music and the way we operate as an extension of ourselves. We are proud to be on a label and surrounded by artists with the same integrity and we are so incredibly excited about the future we can build with this new family.”

John Carbone also added the following about the video:

“A long time friend of the band, Taylor Graham is a kindred spirit in that the devotion and passion she pours into her art is honest, vulnerable and courageous Tom Flynn is our go to director. His attitude, ability, and the work he produces have brought us back to him four times now. Having covered a lot of ground in our previous videos, we saw this as a chance to let these two great artists explore and express themselves. They were given very little direction from the band, only having been reminded of an important theme of the song: the purging of old wounds.”
