February will mark Mother’s Cake’s first ever Australian visit. The Austrian prog-rockers will be playing songs off their debut album, Creation’s Finest, which is due for Australian release this February via Inway Records.
Formed in 2008, the band – consististing of Yves Krismer, Benedikt Trenkwalder and Jan Haußels – has since picked up fans and buddies by the names of Iggy Pop, The Stooges and The Deftones. With their effortlessly cool rebellious aesthetic, and a sound that is reminiscient of rock heroes Led Zeppelin and The Mars Volta, it’s not too difficult to see where the accolades are coming from.
A random fun fact: Mars Volta keyboardist Ikey Owens has his fingers in the (Mother’s) cake too (bad pastry pun, sorry), featuring on single ‘Soul Prison’.
Mother’s Cake will be playing The Bald Faced Stag on Friday February 21.
