Mothers Announce New Album <i>Render Another Ugly Method</i>, Share First Single

Indie-rock outfit Mothers have announced their forthcoming sophomore album, Render Another Ugly Method, out Sept. 7 via their new label, Anti- Records.

Led by Athens, Ga. native singer-songwriter Kristine Leschper, the band first came on the scene with 2016’s When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired.

They describe their follow-up record as “an assemblage of personal vignettes and imagine scenarios that examines consent, escape of the body, power & powerlessness, and the act of making.”

The first single, which starts off upbeat before transitioning into a creeping ballad, is “Blame Kit,” which is out now. Along with the single, the band has also released an abstract album trailer featuring a snippet of another new track, “Baptist Trauma,” which Leschper says is a dissection of her self-described “ugly” work ethic.

Mothers have a handful of tour dates in support of Lucy Dacus and Japanese Breakfast this summer before heading out on their headlining North American tour starting on Sept. 19.

Below, listen to “Blame Kit” and check out the Render Another Ugly Method album trailer, along with the band’s tour dates and their 2017 Daytrotter Session.
