Bio:
"Following their split 7” with LA’s Aeges released last October, Dust Moth now prepares to release their debut EP, Dragon Mouth. A dense, layered genre-defying statement in six distinct movements. The band is comprised of current & former members of such influential bands as These Arms Are Snakes, Minus The Bear, Narrows, Undertow, Aeges and XVIII Individual Eyes.

Taking the sound hinted at on their debut single “Toto,” the band has upped the ante for themselves across the board. The songs are deceptively heavy while simultaneously lush with atmosphere, as Irene Barbaric’s haunting croon floats effortlessly above it all. The album spans the emotional spectrum with some moments feeling unbearably morose and others feeling utterly triumphant. Few debut EPs sound this confident, this direct, or this special.

Dragon Mouth was produced, recorded, and mixed by Matt Bayles, who is also a full time member of the band (keys). His resume is no secret, and includes legendary bands such as Isis, Mastodon, Botch, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and many more. It was then sent off to be mastered by Chris Common (Palms, Pelican, The Sword). The album will be released on April 22nd via The Mylene Sheath."

2. Cusp

Selected Press:
"moody, murky art-rock with a mournful vocal courtesy of singer Irene Barber. With any luck, a full-length won’t be far behind..." — eMusic

"dissonant rock with big instrumental tones, long arcs of delay, and a personable pop vocal delivery..." — Brooklyn Vegan

"layered atmospherics that are simply dripping with reverb and smothered in lush female vocals... infectious..." — Heavy Blog Is Heavy

"an atmospheric post-rock anthem..." — Exclaim

"Melding the ethereal qualities of TAAS and Minus The Bear with the magnificent voice of Barber, it’s a heady mix, akin to the inertia of a car crash in slow motion. It also recalls Deftones in no small degree, in that the vocalist is reminiscent of a female Chino Moreno..." — The Monolith


Preorder Date: March 7th, 2014 (Email list March 6th)
Release Date: April 22nd, 2014

3/25 was the original street date, but unfortunately the first round of test presses got junked so we had to have more made and push the street date back a month :(

Yeah, the new ones have been approved though, so we're all good to go now :D Pre-orders will probably end up shipping out well ahead of street date, by several weeks most likely.
