Eclectic Brisbane 3-piece MofoIsDead have been quiet for a little while, but are returning with their new track SemiDrop, an East-Coast tour to showcase the tracks and plans for releasing their EP in March. The big, bold track is out this Friday, January 30.

MofoIsDead is spearheaded by the talented Paul Galagher – whose praises have been sung by Guns’N’Roses’ drummer Matt Sorum, Australian rock greats Billy Thorpe and Jimmy Barnes, brilliant American bass player Billy Sheehan (Mr Big) and US band Better Than Ezra. That’s all without mentioning his tenure as vocalist and frontman for seminal Australian rockers The Butterfly Effect.

Now they are birthing new single “SemiDrop” – it’s the refreshing, cold headrush first gulp of a beautiful new musical milkshake from their as-yet-untitled EP, due in March 2015. A full national EP tour will follow in mid-2015.

SemiDrop is a bombastic, dynamic track – it is a Faith No More meets (early era) Muse collision that makes up this bass-heavy, epic vocals track. A filmclip for the song will follow within the month.

The Mofos are heading out on tour throughout March – Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne are getting a taste of the new material. The SemiDrop tour hits Coolangatta Hotel Friday March 13 with Mass Sky Raid, The Round Persuasion and Neon Tiger, Brisbane at New Globe Theatre March 19 with Mass Sky Raid, Harequin and Flynn Effect, Melbourne at Workers Club Saturday March 21 with This Fiasco, Red Bee, Tempest Rising and Let the Number Be X and Sydney’s Bald Faced Stag Thursday March 26.
