We’re very happy to welcome Motherhood into the Forward Music Group management roster.

After a standout year that saw them perform at festivals across Canada, with an orchestra, with a middle-school kids choir, and alongside both The Sadies and Timber Timbre, the New Brunswick trio have just announced a month-long North American tour that includes their first dates in the USA.

The tour will take the band to New York, Chicago, and through the Pacific Northwest to Boise’s Treefort Music Festival to promote the US release of their second LP, Baby Teeth.

Since their 2013 debut LP Diamonds and Gold, Motherhood’s style has walked a twisted path and meandered from anthemic hooks to darker, grimier riffs, and a much more angular and eclectic sound. Described as widely as avant-country, circus punk or black metal fusion, the band has settled reluctantly on art-rock as a catch-all. But as their genre remains illusory, their aesthetic is palpable – if you get comfortable, you deserve to be duped.

“dark like black boot mud” – Sappy Times       “exciting and completely unpredictable” – Grid City Magazine

“a tumultuous tumbleweed of country-laced, spitfire rock ’n’ roll, a cathartic circus wrapped in a sheen of
heartfeltly-howled emotional hooks”

“beautiful, smooth…CBC can playlist this now.” Eric Alper

Come cry with The Olympic Symphonium in their official video for “Comedy”, the third single from their forthcoming album, Beauty In The Tension, out February 9.

The song revolves around the idea of political correctness. What is acceptable to say to someone? What’s not? Is that person going to think this joke is funny? Is this even a joke? It’s about ignorance.

“It’s about lack of respect. It’s about the thickness of skin. It’s about timing. It’s about comedy. What’s the joke and who’s the joker? I’ve looked at jokes from both sides now” explains songwriter Nick Cobham.
