The Moth in the studio



Germany’s acclaimed sludge-doom trio The Moth  have spent the week before Christmas tucked away in the studio recording their third album, writes Paul Castles.

It will be released early 2017 on Germany’s most renowned independent label This Charming Man Records.

The Hamburg outfit have been holed up in a small basement rehearsal room in the city’s famous red light district – where their debut album They Fall was created in 2013.

The Moth have played in Birmingham a couple of times and the plan was to record the album live in an attempt to capture their energetic stage show on record.

Bassist and guitarist Cécile and Freden (both do vocals as well), drummer Tiffy and also their second drummer Curry want to capture the loaded and raw atmosphere of their rehearsals.

One to look out for then, in the New Year.
