Classing their genre of music as Doom/Heavy rock. The Leeds band Black Moth take to the Lincoln Imp stage this weekend (Sat October 4th) for another great line up brought to you by GYH Promotions.

The band consists of Harriet Bevan on vocals, Jim Swainston-guitar, Nico Carew – guitar, Dave Vachon – bass, and Dom McCready – drums.
An unearthly concoction of 60’s garage rock, head-spinning psychedelia and ‘1991-The-Year-Punk-Broke’ grit, Black Moth rose from the Leeds underground scene, taking their trash culture fixations and their love for Stooges squalor and Sabbath sulphur to create an onslaught of monumental riff sorcery and serpentine grace. Their debut ‘The Killing Jar’ effortlessly transcended its influences to arrive at a nefarious and turbulent brew, equal parts horror movie atmosphere, thunderous drive and maverick spark, with Harriet Bevan’s biting and beguiling voice leading the charge.
The Moth have had a storming couple of years since, playing festivals such as Leeds, Reading and Download, as well as two European tours and a massive 15-date UK tour, not to mention stamping their live authority on support slots with Red Fang, Karma to Burn, Turbowolf and Truckfighers to name a few.
Darker things are afoot as 2014 looms large, with the arrival of their still more bold second platter, produced like their first by Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Grinderman, The Cramps), which takes their kaleidoscopic heaviosity and sepulchral style to a whole new plateau of riff-driven dementia. With this and an appearance alongside the likes of Iggy Pop, Nick Cave and Lydia Lunch on the new Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions album ‘Axels And Sockets’ on the cards, the glow of this band’s ampstacks and the roar of their diabolical fortitude are set to form signposts to fresh oblivion aplenty.
