Mother Mother playing at the Clarke

Vancouver rock band begins Canadian tour in November

B.C. band Mother Mother is touring the country and will be in Mission on Dec. 12.

The group will be promoting their new album, The Sticks , released just this month.

The Juno-nominated quintet will begin their trip on the East Coast, starting in Halifax, and will gradually make their way out west. Hannah Georgas will be their special guest.

The Sticks follows a whirlwind year of near constant touring in support of their previous album Eureka, and features a collection of 14 new songs including the addictive first single Let’s Fall In Love, currently sitting at number two nationally on the Modern Rock radio chart.

The band’s ascent from an acoustic folk trio touring the open mics of their hometown (Quadra Island), to an internationally revered alternative pop/rock five-piece touring the clubs, theaters and event centers of North America and Europe, not only demonstrates just how far they’ve come but has also blazed the trail for what’s to follow. Featuring the multi-talented line up of Ryan Guldemond (vocals/guitar), Molly Guldemond (vocals/synth), Jasmin Parkin (vocals/keys), Jeremy Page (bass/horns) and Ali Siadat (percussion/electronics), Mother Mother’s unique blend of clever lyrics, stunning vocals, quirky arrangements and a multi-dimensional sound both on stage and in the studio has amassed the group a reputation that has brought about their celebration as indie darlings, all the while endearing to the mainstream.

Mother Mother will be playing at the Clarke Theatre on Dec. 12. Tickets go on sale this Friday at Ticketmaster.ca.
