Mother Mooch are a five piece fuzzed out rock band from Dublin, Ireland. Taking their name from a misheard Black Sabbath lyric and their inspiration from a broad spectrum of grunge, alternative and desert/stoner rock, garage, punk and psychedelia: Mother Mooch is the amalgam of each member’s eclectic music tastes combined to form something entirely new.
After spending several years honing their line up, sound and live show, Mother Mooch shifted gears in 2015 releasing their debut EP and taking their first steps into Ireland's festival scene. They were selected to perform at the launch party for Dublin's newest festival, Canalaphonic, as well as launching the main Making Waves Stage at Portobello Harbour and performing as part of Mother Fuzzers Ball's takeover of The Lower Deck/Bello Bar during the festival. They will also perform at this year's KnockanStockan Festival as part of the Abner Brown hosted Wishbone Stage, Dublin's brand new alternative spectacular Ys Fest in The Academy and again as part of Abner Brown's Oxjam stage at Electric Picnic. Their only non-festival appearance of the summer will be supporting former QOTSA/Kyuss legend Nick Oliveri for the second year running.
In July 2015 Mother Mooch's song "Into The Water" was selected by seminal underground website Doomed & Stoned.com for inclusion on their latest compilation album "The Enchanter's Ball", which highlights the rise of female-fronted heavy rock bands from around the globe.
Their debut album Nocturnes will be released in Autumn 2015.

"A rock power mainstay that should truly settle well with hard rock fans around the globe"
"As a debut EP goes, there is something about Mother Mooch that makes you want to hear a lot more from them and are definitely a band to watch out for"
