Mating Ritual’s raucous campaign for mayors of Swagger-town continues with the title track to their just released LP Light Myself On Fire. It’s an explosion of grit, groove, and confidence and should be at the top of any playlists withe terms like “pre-gaming”, “tacos”, or “The Backyard Scientist”.
ALSO, we’re releasing Light Myself On Fire on vinyl through Vinyl Moon which is about as exciting as things can get. Pre-order it here.

“U + Me Will Never Die” is an audio carnival. It’s joyful, free spirited, and funky. If it was a carnival ride, it’d be The Scrambler. Not overly intense, and just hype enough to give you a thrill. Look, there’s no line. How many tickets do we have left? Alright, let’s ride.
For your post-fun wind down vibes get into B-side, “Splitting in Two” as well.

We’re happy to announce the newest VINYL MOON release, the record club that presses ten hot new music artists to vinyl with custom-made visual artwork and design.
Volume 025: The Space Between features art from multi-talented Jack Bloom, whose mystical artwork takes you to a new dimension. A gatefold jacket with arcane symbols and spot-gloss accents holds a see-through magic card, as well as a moving lenticular insert that grabs back. The music is a metaphysical experience in and of itself, pressed on marbled sky-blue vinyl.

After years of waiting and teasing, we are finally getting a full Mating Ritual album! The record is called How You Gonna Stop It? and I couldn’t be more stoked. If you haven’t got into Mating Ritual yet then here is your “Second Chance”! (Sorry…)
But seriously, I’ve selfishly had the raucous heartbreak jams “Second Chance” on repeat so long that its been followed up by another new track “Drunk” as well as a big concert announcement. Mating Ritual are celebrating the album release with a huge benefit show for Planned Parenthood on June 24th and The Hi-Hat in Los Angeles. And on top of all that goodness, there will be lives sets from TBE faves DYAN and Inspired & The Sleep as well as so much more.

This party sucks but where else you gotta be tonight
Some nights you aren’t ready for the city and some nights the city isn’t ready for you. The next time you’ve got your jacket, shoes, and spirit all on point and rest of the town is dragging their feet crank up some Mating Ritual and make your own fun. “Hoy You Gonna Stop It?” is the title track from the upcoming 2-part LP from the former frontman to Pacific Air. Listening at the right volume will increase your badassness by at least 3 points. Or at least that what my current swagger is telling me…

Let the sweet voice of Mating Ritual remind you that “change can make you feel alive”. Change your friends. Change your surroundings. Change your attitude. Or just change your damn sheets you slob. But do them all with “everybody Knows” playing in the background.Â Read more
