Mother Mother Release "Love Stuck" Official Video + Extend US Tour With New East Coast Dates!


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Critically lauded alt-rock band Mother Mother has released the official video for their single "Love Stuck." The video is now premiering on Vevo and can also be viewed on Mother Mother's official YouTube channel. "Love Stuck" has been added to seven alternative radio stations across the country and is continuing to gain adds and spins. The band has added a string of east coast tour dates to their summer tour, including a headline date at New York's Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are on sale now, for more information please visit www.mothermothersite.com.

"In this video we travel through an FX-drenched, animated mind-scape of someone whose soul is lost and fragmented," singer Ryan Guldemond explained. "Such a journey can be varied, fantastical, confusing even, but if one makes it to the other side, they may just find themselves. On the other hand, they may just find themselves a giant, cosmic ice hole to fall down."

With the world roiled by fear and division borne out of politics, economic uncertainty, and terrorism, perhaps there is no better time for the arrival of music underpinned by the belief that love wins. Into the maw of anxiety comes No Culture, which posits that society uses negative byproducts of culture — such as narcissism, hedonism, and addiction — as a means to nurture its fears of the unknown. "If we can strip back what feeds our differences, and just connect as people we might be more united at a time where we really need to be," says Mother Mother's frontman, guitarist, and lyricist Ryan Guldemond.

Co-produced by Brian Howes, Ryan Guldemond and Jason "JVP" Van Poederooyen, No Culture features 10 tracks and is the follow up to their highly successful breakout album Very Good Bad Thing. On the bands' new studio album, Mother Mother continue to honor their synth-driven sound with aspects of alternative pop, creating a shimmering blend of strong hooks, big beats, ethereal vocals, and sing-along choruses, with an injection of punk rock energy.

Following the release of their breakthrough album Very Good Bad Thing, Mother Mother toured the U.S. extensively, including dates with AWOLNATION and Imagine Dragons, racking up top chart positions and awards along the way. So, it comes as no surprise that the band were feeling some pressure from fans to deliver a major follow-up.

When it came time to write, Guldemond retired to a home studio he had built in the woods on the family's very property where he and sister Molly (vocalist and keyboards) grew up. "It was so perfect and quiet that it became deafening and self-defeating," he says. Three months before heading there, Guldemond put down a long habit of self-medicating with drugs and alcohol. After a few months of sobriety, the honeymoon wore off and he fell into a depression. A debilitating period of writer's block ensued, which inspired the first single "Love Stuck."

It turns out that exploring life, songwriting, and their own identity — and being clear of mind and substances during the year that No Culture was written and recorded — resulted in Mother Mother's most emotionally honest, vulnerable, and least cynical album to date.

But just because the album's themes skew dark does not mean the sonic mood of No Culture is gloomy. "It's not a down record," Guldemond says. "There's never a dark theme that isn't accompanied by an answer or a way out. And it was crucial to take introspective themes and prop them up with energized and optimistic music. Sometimes sadness is better carried in a vehicle of happiness."

"I think a story is better told when you're not so entrenched in living it," he says. "I look forward to performing these songs from the vantage point of having moved on from what led to their creation in the first place."

Mother Mother is Ryan Guldemond on guitar and vocals, Molly Guldemond on vocals and keyboards, Jasmin Parkin on keyboards and vocals, Ali Siadat on drums and percussion, and Mike Young on bass.
