“Sharp, chunky modern hard rock that makes you think of Halestorm, Foo Fighters and In This Moment, alongside touches of various classic rock heavyweights “ - Classic Rock Magazine, UK Issue 269


Marisa And The Moths are turning heads with their alternative rock sound and powerhouse female vocals. Their 2019 self-titled debut album received rave reviews from press outlets like Kerrang!, Classic Rock, and BBC Radio 2's Rock Show. 


With previous headline tours under their belt, support slots for artists like Kris Barras Band, as well as appearances at festivals like 2000 Trees and Planet Rockstock, Marisa And The Moths have proven themselves to be a top-tier live act.

The past few years have not been easy for Marisa and the band, including a near-death covid experience and personal tragedies. However, these challenges have only served to inspire their most mature music yet.


The band kick off 2023 with a series of EPs leading up to their highly anticipated sophomore LP, 'What Doesn't Kill You'. They will also be recording a live session album at the iconic Abbey Road studios.

Marisa's raw and honest lyrics paired with alternative rock and grunge instrumentals make for a unique and compelling listen.

Listeners can expect both hope and despair as they navigate through each track. 

Each of the EP and album titles are incomplete sayings, which signposts the juxtaposition between hope and despair.

With so many exciting releases planned for 2023, it is sure to be the year of the Moth.
