Mower issues update


Mower Mower are currently tearing up the US and shredding audiences alongside Hedpe on the "New World Orphans" Tour with Dirtball and DGAF. The band has checked in with the following update from the road:

"We're happy to be back out on the road with our friends in (Hed)pe, they are totally destroying it these days. Every night Mower whips the crowd into pits, they're screaming, chanting, having a great time and we leave the stage thinking we just saw the place go crazy," says Mower's Brian Sheerin. "Then (Hed)pe takes the stage with this catalog of songs everyone loves, great covers and they flip the whole crowd on its head. It's amazing to see them in action and it ups our game every night. You add DGAF and The Dirtball to the mix and you get a really great value for your ticket money. We're really happy to be a part of this one as the underground is where it's at right now."

Mower have titled their upcoming new album "Make It A Double" and set a July 28th, 2009 release date through Suburban Noize Records. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, CA with producer Eddie Wohl (Anthrax, 36 Crazyfists) and will include nine new Mower songs along with six songs by Mower's jazz lounge alter-ego, Slower. Weaving together numerous musical styles from hard rock to jazz, Mower's "Make It A Double" dives farther into the group's hardcore roots to unleash their heaviest songs to date while experimenting with slower tempos, creepy riffs and hazy mellow tones on the Slower side of the album.

"With 'Not For You' our mindset was to write good songs in any style we felt like. Amongst all the punk, metal, industrial and whiskey tracks we did was this trippy jazz/lounge number called 'L.A. Riot', which was the genesis of our new alter-ego, Slower," says Sheerin. "As 'Make It A Double' developed we created Slower songs by completely remanufacturing tracks from the first two albums and we were able to experiment with a new vibe. That allowed us to focus on making the new Mower material heavy across the board. "
