History[edit]

Mothers originally formed in 2013 as the solo project of musician Kristine Leschper.[1] Leschper started making music while she was a student studying printmaking at the Lamar Dodd School of Art.[2] Over the next year, Leschper began to garner a following alongside acclaim in the Georgia music scene.[3] After garnering this attention, Leschper decided to recruit other musicians from Athens to form a full band. In November 2015, Mothers announced plans to release their debut album, When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired, on February 26, 2016.[4][5] The album was released on Grand Jury Records in America and Wichita Recordings in England.[6]

On June 20, 2018, Mothers announced the follow-up LP to their debut, titled Render Another Ugly Method, due to be released on September 7, 2018 on ANTI- Records. An accompanying tour throughout North America was announced in conjunction.
