New Years is a time for face-melting

Local metal band Mokomokai has been making building a reputation for themselves throughout Peterborough with their brazen ‘70s style of heavy music  and by consistently packing fans into downtown venues. Now they are getting set to melt faces on New Year’s Eve.

Having had three releases so far, Justice And Chrome (2012), Poison Whiptail (2013) and a 7” split with Public Animal (2014), the band is looking to finish out their year with one final blowout at the Gordon Best Theatre on December 31 to ring in 2015.

Presently touring western Canada, the band responded to questions about the event, saying “New Years is going to be an apocalyptic hailstorm of rock and roll! We’re going to burn down the Gordon best with our long disbanded home town rocker pals in Argyle! You heard correctly, ARGYLE!!!”

When asked about their inspiration for the party, the band said, “There were a lot of factors but ultimately we wanted to do it for the same reason we ever want to do anything:

Mokomokai also invites fans to find them at, saying “You can grab all the fruits of our non stop releasing there, watch our video, show it to your mom and dad, praise the devil for evil music, consider a future in law, abandon it for a stint of debauchery and substance abuse, lunge wildly at the pope, all the usual stuff.”

There may be a lot of things going on that night, but very few, one imagines, will be louder.
