Described as “one of Britain’s most exciting new noises” by Kerrang! and “The new kings of British rock music” by Distorted Sound, Mother Vulture are turning heads with their now infamously energetic live shows and critically acclaimed debut album Mother Knows Best. Combining off kilter octave-pedalled alt punk fury with the bombastic and eccentric tendencies of stadium filling rock legends creates an outfit that were as at home at Bloodstock as they were at ArcTanGent. Everyone agrees it’s a hard sound to put a finger on, but it’s impossible to look away.

The past 2 years have seen the band make festival appearances at ArcTanGent, Bloodstock, Bearstone (Croatia), Leopallooza and Steelhouse, Burn it Down and a headline slot at Dot to Dot Bristol, as well as supports for the likes of Reef, Feeder, 68, Steel Beans, Jamie Lenman + Michael Monroe.

Their debut album Mother Knows Best has been described as “An explosion of monster hooks, punkoid ferocity, psychedelic moments and modern twists” by Classic Rock and “Somewhere between Royal Blood at their fuzziest, Biffy Clyro at their heaviest and Queens of the Stone Age at their most crazed and chaotic” by Kerrang.

2023 saw the band play packed out shows across multiple UK tours, including a sell out at Bristol’s THEKLA. Their latest single Go Big or Go Home was featured in Kerrang, TotalGuitar, Metal Hammer, Classic Rock + BBC Radio, and was featured in Metal Hammers’ “Tracks of the year”. ♫♪♪
