Mum Locked In Castle release EP

Ascending skewed-up rock crew unveil their brand new five-track EP through Medium Rare Records, on 25th October 2010.

Sounding like an early Incubus spewing out dirty funked-up metal grooves and breeding with the spawn of The Mars Volta, MLIC are here to make their twisted mark on the UK scene, and these Yorkshire Terriers have the perfect bait in the shape of their new record ‘Lions Led’, out this Autumn.

Hailing from the small sleepy seaside town of Scarborough and taking their moniker from a headline article of their local tabloid, Mum Locked In Castle were formed in late 2007 by four sharp students at the University of Hulls Scarborough campus. In an effort to evade boredom and seek inspiration, the sprightly quartet spat out their debut EP ‘Vultures’, which chalked up strong praise from many sectors of the underground press. MLIC pulled from a span of notable influences ranging from the likes of Rueben and Incubus, through to Blakfish and even Nine Inch Nails, yet their own stamp was indelibly etched on the record. The wirey upstarts played a host of shows throughout England in support of the EP, even managing to rack up supports to UK heavyweights ‘Feeder’ and Fast-rising UK treasures ‘Pulled Apart by Horses’ along the way.

Early 2010, Mum Locked In Castle decided to head into the studio with the clear intent of upping the ante. The band recruited Jason Wilcock (Reuben, Blakfish) to work on the record and they headed down south to the Big Smoke to Stakeout Studios to lay down cuts for their next installment ‘Lions Led’. Now armed with an exciting new EP that swerves and pulls right from the get-go, MLIC will be unleashed to wider plains. So, look out – MLIC have arrived.
