Band Bio- In December 2012, Aidan and Pete began collaborating musical ideas. Over the course of 2013, these ideas developed into what we now know as the Transcendence EP. Along the way, they were joined by the other members, first Mike, then Joe and finally Dan.
A lot of time was taken over honing and refining the sound. Though the songs all share a similar grounding, it was very difficult to define the genre as a whole. Sub genres are rife in the realm of modern music, so Mooneater decided that their signature blend of metal would go by a new, tongue-in-cheek name: Luxury Metal.
In March 2014, the band embarked on the recording process of the Transcendence EP with Pete “PeteyG” Graves of the band Red Seas Fire. Pete’s years of experience in recording and producing bands’ music combined with Mooneater’s focussed work ethic meant that the outcome was truly as the band had envisioned.
Moving into the future, Mooneater’s aim is to write more music that will push the envelope further than ever, as well as playing live shows in as many different places as possible
