Periphery vocalist Spencer Sotelo's new project King Mothership has today dropped its debut album The Ritual! The band, which also includes drummer Matt Halpern (Periphery) and bassist Tai Wright (Slaves), puts forward a tight, progressive angle on the pop-punk genre, and you can take a listen to the three catchy singles they've previously released below:
Spencer Soleto says of the new project:
"Very excited to finally share this record with the world. These ideas have been around for about eight years and it's such an amazing feeling to have sculpted them into songs we're all so proud of as a band. We had a blast making this record and I think it's gonna be the first of many to come.
I just got sick of hearing it in the demo form. But I would have some Periphery fans hit me up every now and then, and they'd be like, 'What happened?' Somebody hit me up in my direct messages like, 'What's the deal with that?' And I was like, 'Yeah, what is the deal with that?' A couple years ago, I went back and started opening the sessions. I was like, 'This is fucking cool.' I was re-inspired."
The Ritual can be bought and/or heard on all good streaming services!
