‘Cute band name’, you say? Trust us: there’s nothing moth-like about these guys. Expect sharp, chunky modern hard rock all mixed up with the grungy goodness of the 90s which makes you think of Halestorm, Foo Fighters, alongside the femme power of Deap Vally and PJ Harvey.


Marisa And The Moths are a new alt-rock band on the scene, supercharged with an outstanding stage presence and filthy, gritty sound.


Since their debut in 2019 with Skin, they've already rapidly garnered a following which continues to grow at pace. Formed by Marisa Rodriguez & based in Reading, MATM have been championed by the likes of Planet Rock and BBC Radio 2 Rock Show. The band were also featured on Kerrang ‘Fresh Blood’ as Artist of the week, have had a feature in Classic Rock Magazine 269 and even featured on the cover CD.


Despite adversity, the band have kept their buzz alive and growing throughout the trials and tribulations of 2020-21, hosting livestream events, releasing a deluxe edition of their debut self-titled album, multiple music videos, and building hype for their 2nd album in the making.

After completing 2 successful UK headline tours, the band are heading out on their 3rd tour this winter 2021, with their 2nd album scheduled for release early 2022, which has been predominantly funded by their devoted fan base.
