Leeds band Black Moth are to release a split single with London prog rockers Xm3a. The single will be released on 6th June through the New Heavy Sounds label (Rolo Tomassi, PABH) on limited clear 7" vinyl.
'Spit Out Your Teeth' is Black Moth's follow up to their debut single 'The Articulate Dead/Blind Faith' released to rapturous reviews and plentiful airplay in January.
'It's Possible' is the first taster from London's XM-3a's forthcoming concept album 'A Darkling Plain'. It follows on from January's debut 12" single 'Bad Robot Man', their 9.19 minute doom riffing acid-psyche drenched epic, and is an edited version of the ten minute cataclysm that will be a key part of said album, and a crucial installment of the album's twisted tale of a dystopian future following the techno-wars.
Finding a shared aesthetic with Leeds heavy rockers Black Moth, XM-3a decided to produce a palatable 4 minutes of slow-rocking and monumental fuzz-bass, grinding riffs, wigged-out acid solo-ing and angst-ridden vocalising in order to share the sides of a 7" single and reach out to the heavy sounds of Yorkshire.
