Rock supergroup MOTOR SISTER — featuring Jim Wilson (MOTHER SUPERIOR), Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), Pearl Aday (Scott‘s wife and daughter of late actor/musician Meat Loaf), Joey Vera (ARMORED SAINTFATES WARNING) and John Tempesta (THE CULT) — will release its new album, “Get Off”, on May 6 via Metal Blade Records. The official music video for the LP’s first single, “Can’t Get High Enough”, is out now.

Watch “Can’t Get High Enough” below.

Wilson says: “We wanted to make a high-energy, kick-ass rock and roll record from top to bottom. All killer, no filler.”

Adds Vera: “Our first record ‘Ride’ was a collection of songs we re-recorded from the band MOTHER SUPERIOR which was great, but I’m stoked that we had this chance to actually get into a room together and write this batch of all new material. We keep in mind where this band originated from but we get to take it to totally different levels.”

About the new single, Ian says: “‘Can’t Get High Enough’ is a straight-up ripper from start to finish.”

“Get Off” will be available digitally as well as physically on digipak CD, 180-gram black vinyl, crimson red with blue smoke vinyl (U.S. exclusive) and pale blue gray marbled vinyl (EU exclusive — limited to 200 copies).

MOTOR SISTER was originally formed as a MOTHER SUPERIOR covers band made up of diehard fans — and aided by sharing the same frontman — playing the songs for the love of doing so. Catching the attention of Metal Blade, the label offered to put out a record and the result was “Ride” (2015), a collection of live-in-the-studio takes cherry-picked from MOTHER SUPERIOR‘s back catalog.

Now, they step beyond those parameters, returning with their second album, which is almost entirely brand new material. “The record of covers was already done, so there was no need to do it again,” says Aday. “We’re a bunch of songwriters with so much passion for the same kind of music, it just makes sense that we would make new music together, and it was easy as usual to follow Jim‘s lead on this one. He was overflowing with songs and ideas so we all happily jumped right in.” Adds Wilson, “We definitely wanted to continue with the spirit of my old band and it’s not difficult really because everything MOTHER SUPERIOR did was done with heart and soul and I think soul is an important word. Not necessarily ‘soul music’ but the feeling that comes with it.”
