In the winter of 2015, what started as a constant Tuesday night jam session w/ rotation musicians, 4 of the regulars decided the jams were slowly becoming well written songs. Thus being said, we took it to the next level and made things official. our creative outlet became know as – Mother Tongues.
After playing our very first show on Halloween night in the basement of a house, we gained the attention of the local scene and quickly moved on to playing every weekend. On May 27, 2017 The Tongues released their very first “self titled” EP.
After hitting the road, playing countless shows in support of the album, it was time to take it to the next level. It was time to structure a complete LP. In the midst of writing we released our hit single “Microwaved Bubblegum”. Later that very track would fall into the hands of psych rock pioneer, Noah Write of Salty Dog records in Melbourne, Australia finally giving us a label to rely on.
