Every generation seems to spawn a group of like-minded bands that all seem to grow together and can't be mentioned without thinking of one or two of the others. For instance, it's hard to thinking of Iron Maiden without Judas Priest and Dio; it's hard to thinking of Alice In Chains without thinking of Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Nirvana; it's hard to thinking about Metallica without thinking of Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. Will same be said about Mothership, Scorpion Child and Gypsyhawk? Only time will tell, but this is how legends are born!

The Dallas-based badasses in Mothership are about to hit the road with a new wave of retro minded rockers - Scorpion Child and Gypsyhawk - this Fall, and will weave their way across the U.S., also making their very first visit to Canada! It was recently announced that the trio were added as the support slot for the Scorpion Child and Kadavar tour; which kicks off in Denver, CO with the Snowboard on the Block Festival on September 14th. Also added to the tour package is Wilson and Metal Blade recording artists, Gypsyhawk, with whom Mothership toured with earlier this Spring. This will mark the third tour that Mothership will embark on in 2013, however, this will be the first time that the boozing bruisers have ventured away from the western half on the U.S.  

When asked about their thoughts on this latest road trip, Kyle Juett (vocalist/bassist) had this to say, "We could not be more stoked that our Scorpion Child brothers asked us to join them on what will be one of the top, if not, the best touring Rock & Roll shows taking place this Fall. Personally, I'm looking forward to watching all the bands jam and to welcome aboard any and all new brothers and sisters every night."

Mothership is opening every night, so join the band early and stay late through the night as each band rocks you to the core!

# SCORPION CHILD, Kadavar, Gypsyhawk, and Mothership only

* Mothership only

With their self-titled debut, MOTHERSHIP masterfully delivers 70's-tinged U.S. hard rock with a sound that satisfies like a steaming hot stew of UFO and Iron Maiden, blended with the southern swagger of Molly Hatchet and ZZ Top, MOTHERSHIP's goal from the beginning has been to carry on the tradition of the classic rock style; updated and amped up for the modern day. Originally self-released in 2012, MOTHERSHIP and Ripple Music have joined forces to re-release this stunning debut record on CD and LP. Mothership is available at
