On September 8, rock supergroup MOTOR SISTER — featuring Jim Wilson (MOTHER SUPERIOR), Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), Pearl Aday (Scott's wife and daughter of actor/musician Meat Loaf), Joey Vera (ARMORED SAINT, FATES WARNING) and John Tempesta (THE CULT) — will appear at Molly Malone's in Los Angeles for a special show. Following the event, MOTOR SISTER will start to write material for a new album, due out 2019 via Metal Blade Records.
Since the release of MOTOR SISTER's debut, "Ride", in 2015, the group has been more than busy with its other commitments: Ian has been touring non-stop with ANTHRAX; Tempesta has been on tour with THE CULT; Vera has been performing "Symbol Of Salvation" in its entirety with ARMORED SAINT; Aday released a solo album, "Heartbreak And Canyon Revelry", and just completed a run of dates opening for Cody Jinks; Wilson released his latest album with drummer Phil Jones in June.
MOTOR SISTER was originally assembled to jam for Ian's 50th birthday party. Thanks to Aday, 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," Scott says of the event that eventually led to an album — "Ride", comprised of MOTHER SUPERIOR covers — and the formation of MOTOR SISTER.
For its sophomore release, MOTOR SISTER will be writing all-new, original songs.
"The simple goal for the second MOTOR SISTER album is to make the most kick-ass, high-energy rock and roll record ever," Wilson comments.
