Published Jul 15, 2014Vancouver pop-rock five-piece Mother Mother have officially joined the majors. Following a string of albums on Last Gang Records, the band have signed to Universal Music Canada for their fifth LP, Very Good Bad Thing, which will be out later this year.
Although the full details of Very Good Bad Thing have yet to be announced, the band have unveiled the new single "Get Out the Way." This alt-rocking song centres on a buzzing synth riff and switches between Pixies-esque verses and a danceable chorus; an animal-themed lyric video can be seen below. The track is also available on iTunes.
"We're thrilled to partner with Universal Music Canada and work with their esteemed staff to release our next album," Mother Mother frontman Ryan Guldemond said in a statement. "They're an amazing and hard working group of people and they already feel like family. Here's to an exciting shared road ahead, bringing the healing stuff of music to a world which needs healing."
The album will mark the follow-up to 2012's The Sticks.
