Moon Tooth, the Long Island-based four-piece who have wowed fans and critics alike, return with one of the year’s most eagerly-awaited rock albums: Phototroph (May 13, Pure Noise Records).
“The theme of plants growing towards the light was just something I kept coming back to in different songs,” explains Moon Tooth singer John Carbone on the impetus for the album title. “Our previous record, Crux, was like a crossroads and was dealing with a lot of negative shit. Phototroph is about walking from the middle and picking a road that goes onward and upward on a brighter path.”
News of the Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Quicksand, Dillinger Escape Plan) produced album is accompanied by the release of Carry Me Home and a hilariously, campy Tom Flynn-directed video, which can be seen below.
