New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Hot off the heels of a successful tour celebrating the tenth anniversary of their iconic album O My Heart, Vancouver-based alt-rock band Mother Mother
released a new single, "Get Up
" today via Universal Music. Music
fans can listen to the new track from the Juno nominated band and watch the behind-the-scenes video on Top40-Charts.com.
The song came to be as a result of a solo trip lead singer Ryan Guldemond took to Costa Rica for some much-needed self-reflection. Guldemond recalls, "I found myself sitting on this obscure beach in Costa Rica completely lost in thought when I noticed I was being photographed. The photographer told me he focuses in on subjects who appear to be lost in some way. I was definitely lost inside myself, in music. We ended up having a long talk, two strangers on a beach, and at the end of it he essentially told me to get up and make something happen. And right then and there on this beach thousands of miles from home I was inspired to write the chorus for what is now our new single, "Get Up."
This is the first piece of new music the band has put out since the release of their sixth full length studio album No Culture in 2017 which produced the #1 hit single, "The Drugs." A new full length studio album is forthcoming, watch for announcements in the coming weeks.
The Juno and MMVA nominated Vancouver-based band, comprised of Ryan Guldemond, Molly
Parkin, Ali Siadat and Mike Young, has had a whirlwind decade; garnering six top 10 singles on the alt rock Canadian charts and 41 million streams and counting on digital platforms. Their latest album, 2017's No Culture, produced "The Drugs" a #1 single on the Alt Rock charts in Canada for three consecutive weeks. The alt-rockers first earned critical acclaim with their debut albums Touch Up (2007) and O My Heart
(2008). The releases that followed, Eureka (2011) and The Sticks (2012) delivered the top 5 radio hits "The Stand
", "Bit By Bit" and "Let's Fall In Love
", making the band the second most aired alternative act in Canada in 2012 and 2013. In 2014 they racked up more hits with "Get Out The Way
", "Monkey Tree
" and "Modern Love
" from their much-lauded record Very Good Bad Thing. The band has also found success on the road, most recent tours include sold-out headline dates across North America, selling out the historic Massey Hall, and a record-breaking five consecutive sold-out shows at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver.
