Wild Moth have confirmed a May 26, 2015 release date for their forthcoming release Inhibitor on Iron Pier.
Inhibitor is the follow-up to Wild Moth’s 2013 debut full-length on Asian Man, Over, Again, as well as a recent split 7″ (Broke Hatre) with fellow Bay Area post-punks Creative Adult.
Inhibitor was recorded at Atomic Gardens with Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor, Whirr) and Max Senna (Miserable) at Secret Bathroom Studios, and it finds Wild Moth hitting a new gear. Layering sludgy, darkly textured guitars on top of each other, the band pulls the listener along on an even stronger melodic underpinning than previous releases.
In late March, Wild Moth will headline a tour of California and Arizona with new label mates and recent Iron Pier signings Hollow Sunshine. The outfit will hit the road again in mid-April supporting Whirr across the Southwest and California.

Hollow Sunshine is led by acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Reuben Sawyer (Deafheaven, Chelsea Wolfe, Ascetic House) as well as vocalist / bassist Morgan Enos. Bring Gold is the follow-up to the duo’s 2013 debut LP, Held Above (Robotic Empire).
Integrating more harmonic song structures and guitar work than prior releases, these eight tracks are a radical jump in Hollow Sunshine’s evolution and a full realization of its thunderous shoegaze attack. Think Nothing and Jesu underpinned with sludgy, droney, post-rock guitar; Bring Gold is a fully realized artistic statement ready to take its place alongside other giants of the genre.
