Black Moth reveal “Condemned To Hope” cover art by Roger Dean

Leeds based doom rock band Black Moth have revealed the cover art for their new album, Condemned To Hope. You can see the artwork below.

The cover was created by prog-rock artwork icon Roger Dean who, speaking in interview with TeamRock, said of the commission: “I like to work with new bands that are at an early stage in their career. This is Black Moth’s second album. But as I had not heard it at the time, it was probably more important that I got on with their record company, and singer Harriet Bevan.”

“In over 40 years it has been extremely rare for me to have heard the music before starting – it’s just the way of the world. So talking about ideas is what does it,” he added.

Black Moth’s record label, New Heavy Sounds, noted in a statement that they were thrilled by the collaboration: “Here Roger goes over to the dark side, moving away from the more fantastical vistas that feature in much of his paintings. For Condemned To Hope he creates something truly bleak and epic.”

Condemned To Hope is released via New Heavy Sounds on the 15th of September. It will be available in CD and digital formats, and in a gatefold vinyl edition limited to 500 copies. It’s available for digital pre-order now.

The album was produced by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavunos, who also helmed the band’s 2013 debut, The Killing Jar.

The full tracklist for Condemned To Hope is as follows:

Black Moth - Condemned to Hope - 640x640“Tumbleweave”
“Set Yourself Alight”
“Looner”
“The Undead King Of Rock ‘n’ Roll”
“The Last Maze”
“White Lies”
“Red Ink”
“Stinkhorn”
“Room 13”
“Slumber With The Worm”
“Condemned To Hope”
