After almost a decade of touring, recording, and releasing music, Leeds based five-piece Black Moth have announced their plans to disband later this year.

The band confirmed their plans to part ways in a statement issued on their social media channels, following a confirmed farewell hometown show with a London one also yet-to-be-announced.

You can read the full statement below.

“The time has come for the Black Moth family to hang up our wings. After delivering three albums we feel we have for now, said what we came here to say. It has been a fucking privilege to play for you and share those incredible live experiences, connecting with you in that special way. We have had the honour of supporting such legends as L7, Sleep, Sisters Of Mercy, Big Business, Orange Goblin, COC and Uncle Acid not to mention touring with our dear friends Grave Lines, Limb, Wet Nuns, Turbowolf, Antlered Man and many more.

We’d like to say a big thanks to New Heavy Sounds for taking a punt on us back in 2012 and believing in us ever since.

We’ve booked a farewell show at Brudenell Social Club on Friday 6th December. Please come and celebrate with us and help us go out with a bang. London date to follow.”

The band’s farewell show will take place at Brudenell Social Club, Leeds on December 6th 2019, and tickets can be purchased online now from

Their third and final full-length album, ‘Anatomical Venus’, was released last year on New Heavy Sounds.
