Moutheater is a sludge and noise-rock band from the Norfolk area of Virginia, primarily composed of drummer/recording engineer Tim Gault and songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Andrew Aircraft. After recording their first 7" with influential engineer Steve Albini during the summer of 2007, the band then began the task of recording the rest of their discography themselves at Tim's Double O Recording.

With a sometimes rotating cast of bass players and other musicians, the band has recorded two full lengths, several ep's, and toured the eastern half of the US multiple times.

Their first full length, Ornament, was released in July 2009, and was featured in Alternative Press, Decibel, and Outburn, as well as other outlets.[citation needed]

After spending a year in the studio throughout 2013 and 2014, and dubbing themselves "Kozmic Noise Rock Flower Sludge", their latest effort, Passing Key, is a culmination of subtle psychedelic influences and their usual early 90's alternative bedrock, combined with their unique brand of pop-song structured, heavy, noise-rock.

Influences[edit]

Moutheater have cited various influences including Nirvana (band), Swans (band), The Melvins, The Jesus Lizard, Godflesh, Neurosis (band), Scratch Acid, Tad (band), Helmet (band), Failure (band), Cursed (band), The Smashing Pumpkins, Queens of The Stone Age, and His Hero Is Gone.
