MOTOR SISTER is a
group of musicians whose collective musical pedigrees speak for themselves.
Mother Superior founder, guitarist, and vocalist Jim Wilson fronts the
band, with Anthrax's Scott Ian on guitar, Pearl Aday on backing vocals, Joey
Vera on bass, and John Tempesta on drums.
Until today, only select songs
have been made available for public consumption. However this changes today as
MOTOR SISTER has teamed up with the music streaming service Deezer to
give an exclusive full album premiere Ride. Listen to the album in
its entirety HERE.
The video for "Fork in the Road" which
provides a rare glimpse into the recording of this Mother Superior favorite by
MOTOR SISTER can be viewed HERE.
The group was originally assembled to jam for
Scott Ian's fiftieth birthday party. Thanks to Scott's wife Pearl Aday, who has
been working on her solo career with Mother Superior front man Jim Wilson for
years, all it took was a quick phone call and the stage was literally set for
Scott's dream gig. "I wanted to cherry-pick a set list of my favorite Mother
Superior songs and get these guys together and have the concert at my
house," Ian says of the event that eventually led to an
"[Mother Superior] frontman Jim [Wilson] was totally into the
idea. Pearl was a huge Mother Superior fan from way back and was in. I asked my
good friends Joey Vera (Fates Warning, Armored Saint) and John Tempesta (White
Zombie, Testament) to be a part of it because I knew they were both big fans as
well and with no hesitation they said, 'We're in.'"
Wilson, too, was
stoked by the opportunity to dust off some songs he hadn't played since his LA
rock trio broke up in the early 2000's after releasing eight albums and playing
as Henry Rollins' backing band. "I definitely didn't need any
arm-twisting," he says. "I was totally flattered and thought it was a
great idea. I figured it would be fun and it was a great opportunity for a new
chapter to be established in order to move forward."
from those two days are what became to be known as MOTOR SISTER's
Ride. The first single from those sessions, "This Song Reminds
Me of You," is available for to stream, along with a featurette video on the
formation of the band and the process behind the record, at metalblade.com/motorsister.
Ride will be
released March 6th in Europe on Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders for the album
are available now at http://www.metalblade.com/motorsister.
In support of
the project MOTOR SISTER played a show a in Brooklyn, NY earlier this
month and have scheduled two special shows March 11th at The Whisky in Los
Angeles and March 12th at DNA Lounge in San Francisco, CA.
