Mother Feather cover
New York City’s self-described “pop cock rock” band Mother Feather revealed details today for their eponymous debut album, due out on May 13th, 2016 worldwide via Metal Blade Records.

Featuring ten tracks that marry the scratchy yet catchy, swaggering, and dangerous sounds of The Stooges, Blondie, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs with the playfulness, pop sensibility, and exuberance of the finest 90s alt-rock, Mother Feather is the combination of the band’s two independently released recordings – 2011′s “Mother Feather” EP and 2013′s “Living Breathing” EP – plus two new songs, “Natural Disaster” and “The Power”.

The eight tracks found on the previously released EPs have been given new life on the upcoming full-length – including a new music video for the lead off track “Living, Breathing”, filmed by director Marc McAndrews at NYC’s Bowery Electric.

Watch “Living, Breathing” video below.

The group has garnered massive buzz for their unique brand of rock, vibrant Bowie-esque costumes and makeup, and enthralling live show. Having previously been featured on,, and (who declared them as “a great New York City band in the tradition of Great New York City Bands”), Mother Feather was also recently named “new band of the week” by Metal Hammer, and will record at BBC’s Maida Vale Studios today (March 17th) after receiving much play on Daniel P. Carter’s Rock Show on BBC Radio 1.

Of the new record, lead singer Ann Courtney says: “I want to make the kind of music that makes hearts explode. The feeling when you’re fifteen and you want to hear that song on repeat turned up as loud as the stereo will go and sing at the top of your lungs and thrash around your bedroom. I don’t want to put any music into the world that isn’t going to save someone – mostly me”.

Mother Feather will be on tour this summer in support of their upcoming record (complete dates will be announced soon). East coast fans will also have the chance to see the band for a special album release show in Brooklyn, and the following night in Philly. See below for more information.
