Moulettes come to The Met on Saturday 13 December showcasing their new album, Constellations.
Renowned for their breathtaking live shows, few bands have the creative range and work ethic of Moulettes. Containing a mix of self taught and classically trained members who have shared the stage and studio with the likes of Mick Jagger, Nick Cave, Seasick Steve, Bonobo and Dave Gilmour, their significant initial period was spent playing live and promoting the Den Of Iniquity nights in London that brought a host of acts to public prominence. After seven years of being a live band it was only in 2009 that their eponymous debut was released. This was followed in 2011 by ‘The Bear’s Revenge’, an album that saw MOJO hail them as “complex and beautiful…intriguing and unique”.
The band released their third studio album and their first for Navigator Records ‘Constellations’ on 2nd June 2014. Recorded in studios, churches, tunnels, workshops and bedrooms around Brighton, Lewes and South Wales in the summer of 2013, it is their most complete and ambitious album to date. Few bands are able to call upon such a willing, prestigious and diverse group of guests. The album features a chamber orchestra that includes performances from legends Arthur Brown and Herbie Flowers (Lou Reed, Bowie) and contemporaries Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets), The Unthanks, Emma Richardson (Band Of Skulls) and a host of players from Sweden, Germany, Greece, Holland, South Africa, Australia, Scotland and Bosnia. Brighton dub troubadour Faye Houston and dubstep producer Mike Dennis complete a supporting cast that emphasises the band’s incredible ability to blend their custom designed Cellos, Violins, Guitars, Drums, Bassoon, Double bass and synths into an incomparable pop/rock/folk package.
Moulettes have constantly been on the road for 5 years and have played festivals as varied as Cropredy to End of the Road. They come to The Met with two support acts; Kit Rice and Deer Johnson.
Tickets to see the performance at The Met are £14. For more information or to book phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
