Mothership: Debut Album Out Now, US Tour Dates Announced!

Marching out of Winter to a US town near you...

Mothership, the self-titled debut from Dallas-based heavy rock trio Mothership is now available worldwide through Ripple Music. Called "a must for any heavy rock and metal fan" by DangerDog.com, Mothership is proving itself a threat to any release vying for the "Best Rock Album or 2013" title.   

Mothership masterfully delivers 70's-tinged U.S. hard rock with a sound that satisfies like a steaming hot stew of UFO and Iron Maiden, blended with the southern swagger of Molly Hatchet and ZZ Top, Mothership's goal from the beginning has been to carry on the tradition of the classic rock style; updated and amped up for the modern day. Originally self-released in 2012, Mothership and Ripple Music have joined forces to re-release this stunning debut record on CD (includes lyrics) and LP (packages to include an 11" x 17" poster and download cards). Mothership is available at www.ripple-music.com.  

After a pre-sale special saw Ripple Music sell out of the limited edition colored vinyl LP version of Mothership in less than two hours, the label has announced that a second edition will be made available to meet the growing demand for this release. The second pressing will be limited to 150 colored (50 purple, 50 green and 50 beer-colored - with a special Mothership beer koozy) and 350 standard black copies. Details to come.  

Mothership will hit the road next month with Gypsyhawk as part of the March Out Of Winter 2013 Tour. Dates are as follows:
