Molla Rilla just unveiled a new track, “Pendulum,” out today. Check out the song bellow to hear more from their upcoming album Viva El Camino, out December 4 on Seeing Red Records.

“‘Pendulum’ is pretty personal. I try to mostly write about a certain subject or idea and, in doing so, remove myself from the story. However, in this song, I talk a bit about where I came from and why I write music. 

After establishing the song and its halftime shuffle verse w/ heavy guitar riff, I couldn’t help but hear rapping over it. The lyric ‘I used to just spit w/ my friends for fun’ is referring to me and my friends making ridiculous rap songs. I ran it by the boys to see if they’d be cool with me rapping over the verses, and they were down!” 

    – Marco Ciofani, Mollo Rilla
Mollo Rilla are genre defying and continue to push boundaries to their breaking point. Their last record was heavily touted as “Queens of the Stone Age meets Jack White with an underlying dark tone,” and while many of those elements remain, Viva El Camino has evolved into much more, at times recalling seminal acts like Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Them Crooked Vultures, and Eagles of Death Metal to name a few.
While never quite sounding like any of these bands, what they share is a distinctive quirky sound all their own. Mollo Rilla are wild, fun, bold, intrepid, dark, moody, and simply outstanding!
