12 October 2014 — 13 November 2014

Mozes and The Firstborn, the Dutch grungy garage pop band, tours the US from October 12th until November 13th. It’s the fourth US-tour for the band, after previous ones in 2013 and early 2014. This time, Mozes and the Firstborn plays over 25 shows (see overview below), in among others New York City, Boston, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The tour is together with Burger Caravan of Stars.

Biography

Mozes & the Firstborn hail from Eindhoven in the Netherlands. The group was formed in 2010 by vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Melle Dielesen, with Corto Blommaert on bass and Raven Aartsen on drums, and the group made its debut at a house party celebrating Dielesen’s 21st birthday. In 2011, Mozes & the Firstborn self-released their first recording, an EP recorded in Dielesen’s home studio titled I Got Skills, and the title tune soon became a fan favorite; when the group signed with Dutch indie label TopNotch Records in 2013, their first release for the company was a single featuring a new recording of the tune.

By the time Mozes & the Firstborn had teamed up with TopNotch, the group had expanded to a quartet with the addition of guitarist Ernst-Jan van Doorn, and not long after the release of the “I Got Skills” single, the four musicians went to work on their debut album. Produced by Michel Schoots of Urban Dance Squad, the self-titled album, like most of the group’s previous work, was recorded in Dielesen’s studio, and it earned the band an international following when respected California-based indie label Burger Records arranged to release the album in the United States in 2014.
