Milwaukee-bred/LA-based indie rock band Big Mother Gig is excited to announce the Friday, April 30 release of its brand new full-length album Gusto. A celebration of sobriety, Gusto is first and foremost a recovery record. Addressing family, marriage, addiction, anger, serotonin, despair and, ultimately, hope, Gusto is a wide-ranging, emotional journey that focuses on second chances.

Cloaked in guitar-driven catharsis and featuring guest vocals from Leah Wellbaum of Slothrust, the first single, “The Underdog,” is an ode to family and friends who stand by those with addiction. Gusto was mixed by Dan Long (Local Natives, Spiral Stairs) and mastered by the legendary Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Spoon, The White Stripes).

Previously, the band released their 2018 LP, No More Questions, while wrapping a West Coast tour opening for Gin Blossoms. The LP featured Dicky Barrett (Mighty Mighty Bosstones) and Britta Phillips (Luna) on vocals. It was praised by Brooklyn Vegan, NPR/The Current, Paste, The Big Takeover, Alternative Press, Under The Radar, No Depression, and more. Since reforming in 2016, Big Mother Gig has performed with Gin Blossoms, Soccer Mommy, The Posies, Luna, Peelander-Z , Alvarez Kings, The Yawpers, and more.
