Mother Mother New Album 'Eureka' Coming In May 2011

Canadian avante pop quintet MOTHER MOTHER are set to release new single 'Simply Simple' on 14th March. The single is taken from their forthcoming third studio album 'EUREKA' which is the band's most tenacious and undaunted record to date. 'EUREKA' will be released in May through Last Gang Records.

Ryan Guldemond, the group's chief songwriter and frontman, says of single 'Simply Simple' - "Posing as an earnest admission of irresponsibility, while wrought with cheeky defeatism, this first-person, slow burning piece of sweet melancholy outlines the cunning disguise of our tragic hero's narcissism as helpless naivety... or some kind of wolf in sheep's clothing cockamamie business. But it's nothing like George Harrison."

Produced by Mother Mother's own Ryan Guldemond and mixed by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Franz Ferdinand, Elvis Costello), the 12 new tracks that comprise the new album surpass their predecessors with a greater sense of cohesion, exuberance and overall sonic depth. Guldemond describes the album as "a vivid depiction of where the band's at right now, which is the height of our musicianship, song writing and strength as collaborators".

The band's previous single "Body Of Years" was in the top 10 at Canadian Alternative Rock and Modern Rock radio, and also landed them two 2009 Casby Award Nominations and a 2010 Canadian Radio Music Award Nomination. In the UK, critics and radio programmers alike were also supportive of Mother Mother. The band's first UK Single "O My Heart" went as far as capturing Record Of The Week on BBC Radio 2's Radcliffe & Maconie Show, subsequently garnering much support from Radio 2 and Radio 6 in the UK as well as inclusion in Q Magazine's Q50 for July 2010.

"Musically fearless, melodically inspired Canadians at their envelope-pushing best", says Q. The notable Spin Magazine wrote "Mother Mother coos lovely boy-girl harmonies, masking their dire lyrics while slyly exulting in the cleansing blaze."

Mother Mother's notoriety stems not only from their knack at making great records, but also due in large part to their remarkable live show. On stage, this group of five delivers a big sound, executing pristine vocal harmonies while utilizing a variety of multi-instrumental talents.

Since the band's conception as an acoustic folk trio in 2005, they've since become a force to be reckoned with, reputed as an act who challenges the conventions of popular music, cultivating a sound all their own. With substantial headway made in the US and Europe, Mother Mother continue to build on that momentum with EUREKA. Keep an eye out for them in early 2011, it's going to be a big year for Mother Mother.
