After the release of their new album 'America’s Velvet Glory' on Jan 13th, LA band The Molochs return with a new EP for Innovative Leisure, titled 'AVG Sessions', a track from which can be heard today at Loud & Quiet

The band’s Lucas Fitzsimons comments; "Hidden Spoon is about revolutionaries imprisoning and executing their King in Paris in 1793. it's just a good story and can apply to any period of time. The song is a vivid ballad.. something that can bring the story to life in someone's head." 

The band also today announce a big run of UK and EU tour dates, as well as SXSW appearances.

Press reaction to date

"The perfect soundtrack to pulling on your Chelsea boots and black crew-neck sweater" - The Guardian 

"One of the year’s best. Which year? Any year" - MOJO 

"Anxious indie-rockers playing up like a reborn Modern Lovers" - Uncut 

"steeped in jangly Eighties rock, with flecks of psychedelic folk and surfer nonchalance" - DiS 

"the album feels like you’re travelling through the US in a beat-up old car, and casually tuning in and out of a dozen different radio stations... a barnstorming record." - NME 

“The Molochs’ latest track is hazy folk with a revolutionary message …The ghosts of Lou Reed and Syd Barrett don’t so much as linger but crawl all over the sound.” – Loud & Quiet

"You & Me evokes a kind of hair-raising nostalgia and perfectly complements the 60s jangle-pop vibes" - Noisey 

"These latest Stateside sounds will put you in a spin" - Shindig! 

"Garage-rock revived with conviction" - Classic Rock 

"Full of rock n roll swagger and referential aplomb" - The Mirror 

"Fitzsimons channels the ramshackle spirit of The Modern Lovers brilliantly" - Sunday Express 

"The Molochs can lay claim to one of 2016’s strongest singles" - The 405
