Mothlite are performing with Earth at the Scala tomorrow evening.

From Time Out:

Thu Jul 17
The Scala, 275-277 Pentonville Rd, London, N1 9NL

Slowcore grunge, moody, riff-stacked belligerence and monochromatic droning courtesy of Dylan Carson's mighty veterans, Earth. Expect to hear from their hefty back catalogue, plus a good chunk of current album, 'The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull' (Southern Lord), which features some surprisingly pretty and delicate passages and far more harmonic diversity. In support, terrific London duo Mothlite deliver a mix of hypnotic, quasi-devotional spooked folk, eerie drones and ambient electronica, as on intriguing recent album, 'The Flax Of Reverie' (Southern). Playing here with a nine-piece orchestra in what promises to be a very special show.
