MOTH EATER, the Beers Village, New York-based doom/metal band featuring guitarist John Conley of SCAR CULTURE, Dave Ardolina and Steve "Buckshot" Seabury of DIRTY RIG, and vocalist John Alaia, has signed a deal with start-up metal label Giddy Up! Records. The group's debut mini-record titled "The Thunder God Of Monster Island" was produced, recorded and mixed at Gain Studios in New York City and will be released on July 27. A song from the CD, titled "Aftermath", is available for streaming on the MOTH EATER MySpace page. The track features world-renowned hurdy gurdy player and composer Geoff Kooris who adds to the band's already intense sound.

"When I listen to our music, I get the sudden urge to smash someone's face in with a shovel," states John Alaia. "Then I become grief-stricken and sob uncontrollably for a few hours, drink a beer, then I repeat the process."

MOTH EATER will perform at "The Thunder God of Monster Island" release party in New York City on August 6 at the Ace of Clubs starting at 9 p.m.
