Motor Sister Unveil Performance Video for ‘A Hole,’ Talk Future Plans
Motor Sister's debut album Ride is out today (March 10), and they're celebrating by unleashing the video for the record's opening track "A Hole."
The band started as a one-off jam session of Mother Superior music at Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian's 50th birthday party and evolved from there. Ian's wife, Pearl Aday, has worked with Mother Superior frontman Jim Wilson on her solo material and initially arranged the jam session. The full band also includes bassist Joey Vera (Armored Saint) and drummer John Tempesta (White Zombie) in addition to Wilson, Ian and Aday.
Ride consists of cover versions of Mother Superior songs and in an interview with Billboard (who also premiered the video that you can check out above), Ian reveals future plans for Motor Sister.
"We're moving forward with Motor Sister, definitely," Ian says. "We definitely intend on writing songs with this lineup, not just pick another 12 songs from the Mother Superior catalog. There are probably one or two Mother Superior songs we may end up recording because we love them so much, but the intent is to move forward and write a bunch of original material with this lineup. I have a lot of ideas already, and Jim says he's got a bunch of ideas."
The band will be playing shows this week in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Tickets for the March 11 show at the Whisky-a-Go-Go are available here, and you can grab tickets for the March 12 at DNA Lounge at this location.
There will also be more Motor Sister shows according to Ian. "We're just waiting on schedules, and it mostly comes down to my schedule with Anthrax," says the guitarist. "Hopefully we'll be able to pick a couple of windows and go out and do shows. We all feel very strongly we're a band."
Ian continues, "First and foremost we're friends; that's why this happened in the first place. We all hang out and make music together anyway, and we really love each other's company. So the idea of getting to go out and play shows together is pretty much the best thing we could all imagine doing."
