First formed in August 2018 over a mutual appreciation of jangly guitars, DIY recording and Ian Curtis, Loudmammoth hail from the North East of England and are comprised of Rachel, Will & Declan. After months of writing and practicing and a slight change of their name, they released their debut single Enough in January 2019. Now they have been signed to Last Night From Glasgow (LNFG) and will release new single, Let Go, through them in June 2019. The band spoke with The Fountain about the track and the signing.
TF: You’ve recently been signed to LNFG, you must be stoked to be included in that roster?
Yeah completely! We’re incredibly fortunate to be with LNFG, they’re lovely people to work with and their whole ethos is very fitting with our outlook as a band. There’s a whole community of LNFG supporters and fans who’ve made us feel very welcome and we’re looking forward to the road ahead with them.
TF: And you have a new single out, what has the reception been to Let Go?
We do indeed, coming out on June 28th! The reception thus far has been really positive, we self-produce everything in our own little studio so to see it go from concept to fruition and hear people are enjoying it is a lovely experience. LNFG are also doing a limited 7” lathe pre-order which is pretty cool!
TF: I see you are playing Newcastle, will you be promoting this with a list of exciting tour dates?
Yeah, we’re playing the Cumberland Arms in Newcastle on the 28th June with support from L-Space and Stephen Solo, which we’re really excited about. As for other gigs, we’ve got plans to play a gig in Glasgow this summer and we’re hoping to play a Leeds show before the end of the year.
TF: Where has been your favourite gig to date?
The release gig for our last single was pretty mint, we played in a fantastic venue in Newcastle called Little Buildings, the intimacy and the atmosphere at the show was just amazing.
TF: What inspired the name Loudmammoth?
It’s a bit of a funny one really, we were originally called Loudmouth, however after a wee nudge from a punk bank not too far from us who were unbeknownst to us, also called Loudmouth, we thought we’d settle for something that sounded a bit similar and that’s when Loudmammoth came along. It makes absolutely no sense at all, but it’s our name.
