Lisburn band Mojo Fury will be officially launching their new album ‘The Difference Between’ in Mandela Hall on Saturday November 16.
‘The Difference Between’ is the much anticipated second studio album from the alt-rockers.
Their debut album ‘Visiting Hours of a Travelling Circus’ has been lauded by all corners of the rock music press during its release, with iTunes running the band as ’Single of the Week’, Rock Sound as ‘Band of the Week’ and features in Front and KERRANG! magazines. Artrocker (‘Album of the Month’), Kerrang, Big Cheese and Rock Sound were all lavish in their praise, and BBC Radio 1, NME Radio, XFM, Total Rock and more have been playing out cuts from the album.
Touring with Oceansize and ASIWYFA, and stand out performances at festivals like Live At Leeds, Eurosonic, In The City and The Great Escape, has enhanced their rapidly growing reputation as one of the UK’s most intriguing and exciting bands.
Mojo Fury have been locked away in ‘Millbank Studios’, the band’s very own farmhouse recording studio, writing and recording ‘The Difference Between’, which is set to be somewhat of a departure from the straight ahead rock of their first album ‘Visiting Hours…’. While still holding all of the raw energy that made the band such a visceral live force, the new album will see the introduction of even more electronic elements, building on the direction that their single ‘We Should Just Run Away’ hit on so indelicately on the debut LP. “For the past year we have been writing and recording our new album ‘The Difference Between’,” explained lead singer Mike Mormecha.
“We released the first song, the title track, and the response was really good. We launched a Pledge Music campaign to help us raise the money for the distribution of the album and in just a few days we reached 10% of our target. We played a few tracks live on our last tour but mostly we have been hiding away and working hard. Now we can’t wait to get out and start gigging.”
Mojo Fury will be joined on the night by Rupture Dogs, who will be launching their debut album ‘Feral’.
The two bands will have support from a host of other popular artists, including A Northern Light and local band The Couth.
Presented by Shizznigh Promotions, which is run by Lisburn man Jonny McKee, the show is guaranteed to be a huge success.
