In support of their upcoming stint with Brick + Mortar, New Jersey’s favorite sons THE MOMS revealed their new EP Songs from the Road today. The 4-song EP is a collection of cover songs by bands that have a special meaning to The Moms and is now available worldwide. Bands include The Front Bottoms “La La La (The Power of Supply)”, Trashkanistan “180 Grier on Nursery”, Half Raptor “Sadly, but Surely”, and Cheapshow “What, We Have Car Payments, We’re Just Going to Walk Away From our Financial Obligations?”.

“In 2010, when The Moms were just a twinkle in our eyes, I had reached out to The Front Bottoms trying to book them in my basement,” explains vocalist Joey Nester. “At the time, The Front Bottoms were still a local band that played places like The Meatlocker in Montclair, basements in New Brunswick, and simple street shows at Rutgers to people who were only just passing by. The band responded to my email with a collection of demos that they had recorded. ‘The Power of Supply’ was among my favorites of these songs and I can’t believe that they had never put it on any of their later records – so we recorded it.”

Living the D.I.Y. dream since 2011, The Moms are a hard charging trio from Morris Plains, NJ. Not only are they masters of the mosh pit – they also deliver memorable hook-filled songs often below the 2-minute mark. They’ve covered ground in the United States, Canada, and Japan including Skate & Surf Festival and three annual appearances at The Fest.

The Moms is Joey Nester (vocals, guitar), Jon Stolpe (bass), Matty Stolpe (drums). Their new EP Songs from the Road was released today via Bar/None Records. A new album is currently in the works. Catch them on tour this summer with Brick + Mortar!
