Mothership Announce November Headlining Tour Dates

I’ve had the good fortune to see Texas trio Mothership four or five times now — most recently at Psycho Las Vegas about two weeks ago and at Desertfest New York in May — and they never seem to disappoint. The Juett Brothers — Kelley and Kyle or Kyle and Kelley, depending on whether you start at stage left or right — and drummer Judge Smith haven’t put out an album since 2016’s High Strangeness (review here), but they’ve been on the road consistently and as much as possible in the years since, and they’ve taken part in numerous tribute compilations and other sorts of outings.

They could probably stand to put out another live record, but to be honest with you, I’m not sure I’d mess with what they’ve got going as it is. They’re a dynamic, hard-rocking, classic-style-but-not-actively-retreading-old-ideas power trio with stage presence that goes even beyond Kelley Juett‘s guitar-face. Not that what I have to say about it matters in the slightest, but as far as I’m concerned, they can do whatever the hell they want.

They’ll be out headlining in November. They announced the announcement, as one will in the Algorithmic Age, and then announced the dates, and whatever comes or doesn’t from them studio-wise, if you make it out to one of their shows, you probably already know you’re getting a rock gig par excellence and sans bullshit. If you didn’t know, well, show up and find out for yourself.

Dates follow, as per socials:
