Single Mothers Reveal Debut Album, Premiere "Marbles"
Published Aug 13, 2014It's been a long time coming, but London, ON quartet Single Mothers have finally announced the delivery of their debut LP. Dubbed Negative Qualities, the record officially arrives October 7 in North America through Dine Alone and overseas through Hot Charity.
According to a press release, it took two years for the long-in-the-works LP to be completed. As previously reported, the band initially hit L.A.'s Big Game Lodge Studio with Bronx member Joby J. Ford, while the group and the producer later completed the recordings in London, Toronto and Upstate New York. The end result is said to be a 10-song effort mixing "high-end punk and intellectual rendering of small town frustration."
The full-length follows Single Mothers' 2011 self-titled EP and is currently being teased with a stream of new album track "Marbles." You'll find the song, filled with sassy screams, thundering drums and barrage of wiry, in-the-red licks, down below, along with Negative Qualities' tracklisting and upcoming tour dates.
