Atlas Moth Covers the Classics

A bit of interesting Atlas Moth news has come to my attention today. Atlas Moth will drop the digital only EP, “The One Amongst the Weed Fields” on September 28th. As a general rule I’m against cover albums, but there is something intriguing about The Atlas Moth doing The Doors “Five to One”–one of the most bad ass songs by The Doors, hands down. The  Atlas Moth is also going to add their demonic blasts to The Mama’s and the Papa’s “California Dreamin”.

 Here is what singer Stavro has to say about the album: “We have been thinking about doing a covers EP for a while. Thirteen-hour drives with only a radio to entertain you eventually takes a toll. But every once in a while we’d hear a song pop up that would strike us as something we all wanted to make into a ‘Moth song. These are the few we came up with from a terribly long list, and we are pretty proud of the outcome. It was a great way to have some fun, produce something new, and do a little pre-production for our new album which we hope to record later this year.”

 The Atlas Moth is also going to hitting the road as the summer comes to a close. On this run The Atlas Moth will be playing along side Nachtmystium, Zoroaster, The Atlas Moth, Dark Castle. You can get more info on dates here, but here are the dates as we know them so far.
