A LOUD, VIOLENT NOISE-ROCK TRIO
New album on Fysisk Format September 19th (NO) / Oct 12th (ROW)!
The Norwegian trio MoE is known for mixing minimalistic compositions with alternative and experimental approaches that fail to fit in the rock genre. Existing since 2008, MoE has released numerous 7″s and 12″s as well as two albums, before Fysisk Format got the chance to release their third album, 3.
3 was recorded and mixed in two days in Norway’s well reknown Athletic Sound Studio and features 7 tracks of raw and to-the-point music inspired by the band’s far stretching tours through Mexico, Japan, South East Asia, Europe.
The three musicians in MoE all are educated full-time musicians with background from contemporary classical music, noise and free improvised music. This album is a document of what happens when the DIY-culture and violent approach of punk rock fuses with the discipline and will to explore of experimental music.
Over the years MoE have collaborated with musicians and bands such as Okkyung Lee, John Hegre, The Observatory and Lasse Marhaug who, with his many talents, also did the artwork for the album. Just recently, MoE started a closer collaboration with norwegian noise rock institution Årabrot, and will also perform as part of the new Årabrot-lineup.
MOE’s third album, and the first for Fysisk Format, is scheduled for release September 19th
