Motherjane to start its three city India tour

MUMBAI: Rock band of the decade by Rock Street Journal, Motherjane is undoubtedly one of the country's oldest bastions when it comes to rock music. Famous for its distinctive overtones of Carnatic rhythms interlaced with rock riffs, Motherjane is among the few forerunners who envisioned a link between hard rock and Indian traditions. Owing to its 21 years of existence, Motherjane will set on a three city India tour travelling to Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore.

Motherjane’s journey began in 1996 when drummer John Thomas had no choice but put a band together for his college festival when their professional act backed out. Little did they know they would go on to become one of the veterans of rock music in India. Soon enough, with their signature style of music and Kathakali face paints, everyone in the rock listening fraternity seemed to be talking about one band from down south – Motherjane. Being true performers in every sense, no college festivals went by without their idols on stage and were recognized at concert venues across the country. Their critically acclaimed debut album Insane Biographydropped in 2002 is regarded as one of the most influential records in Indian rock till date.

A popular name among everyone in the rock listening fraternity, the band has played a huge part in shaping the scene across the country, especially south India. Motherjane is among the forerunners who envisioned a link between hard rock and Indian traditions, forming their signature style of Carnatic rhythms interlaced with rock riffs. With a number of awards and shows under their belt, they are regarded as one of the country's most successful acts. 

The tour is set to kick off on 30 August in Mumbai along with Ankit Dayal on the lineup, co-founder and vocalist of the band Spud in the Box. The three city tour is being presented by Mumbai-based music management company, Mixtape in association with VH1 India. The other two cities are Pune (1 September) and Bangalore (2 September).
