Moon Tooth reveal new LP ‘Phototroph’ + video “Carry Me Home”

Long Island, New York progressive metal unit Moon Tooth have announced their new full-length studio offering titled ‘Phototroph,’ which drops on May 13th through Pure Noise Records (pre-order). In addition, the band have released their new video single dubbed “Carry Me Home,” which you can check out below.

The theme of plants growing towards the light was just something I kept coming back to in different songs,” says Moon Tooth singer John Carbone on the motivation for the album title. “Our previous record, Crux, was like a crossroads and was dealing with a lot of negative shit. Phototroph is about walking from the middle and picking a road that goes onward and upward on a brighter path.”

Regarding the new song, guitarist Nick Lee provides more info, “I really wanted to go all the way Allman Brothers or Hendrix on a Moon Tooth song. We’ve definitely flirted with those sounds on songs in the past but it felt really good to just go all the way bluesy-country and unabashedly old school rock and roll. I think this song is a testament to the fearlessness with which Moon Tooth writes music. We will flirt with any genres we want and it will still sound like us.”
