Motobunny Release Awesome Self-Titled Debut

Motobunny is a brand new, Icona-Pop-Meets-Iggy-Pop, American rock n’ roll band with two dynamic frontwomen and a self-titled debut album that kicks arse.

Motobunny tracks are already spinning around the country on Sirius/XM Radio, on stations including KROQ (LA), KEXP (Seattle), KWSS (Phoenix), and WFMU (NJ), and WRUR (NY) and on respected rock podcasts. Blackheart Films' upcoming feature Jack and Cocaine, produced by Blackheart Records’ Cyn Posner, will feature the band’s anthem “Motobunny.” The band has released its first music video and single on North Carolina’s Rusty Knuckles Music label.

The Motobunny concept formed after members of two acclaimed rock bands, The Love Me Nots and The Woolly Bandits, got on stage together in 2013. After years of sharing green rooms, vans, and seedy tour motels, it was the first time they had performed as one band and the electricity was undeniable. Together they dashed off songs for a dual-frontwomen rock collaboration and headed to Detroit to record with Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Electric Six, Dirtbombs). With a mix by Bob Hoag (The Format, Deer
in The Headlights, Ataris), and mastering by Jason Livermore (Rise Against), the result is 12 tracks of tough rock n’ roll topped off with a girls-just-wanna-have-fun attitude.

Before Motobunny, the band members toured internationally and shared stages with Michael Jackson, Karmin, X, Iggy Pop, The Damned, The Dirtbombs, Mary Weiss, The Neighborhood, Billy Corgan, Little Richard, Jim Adkins, Prima Donna, Kongos, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, The The New York Dolls, Franz Ferdinand, The Jim Jones Revue, and appeared in official SXSW showcases and in official Fender promo films. Their other projects have been featured in Rolling Stone, SPIN, Little Steven's "The Coolest Song in The World" compilations, Rock & Folk, Village Voice, Austin Chronicle, LA Weekly, Detroit Metro Times, Phoenix New Times, and XMU's Radar Report, among others, and aired on Sirius/XM and BBC radio. Their original tracks have been featured in a 2014 Canada Dry commercial and in the syndicated TV shows Rescue Me, Fairly Legal, Bad Judge, and Being Human.

Christa Collins was the first solo artist signed to Disney Records as a child, performed and recorded with Michael Jackson, currently fronts LA garage act The Woolly Bandits, became an X Factor USA top 8 finalist and has made several movie appearances. Nicole Laurenne was an award-winning classical pianist, was named Arizona Republic’s Best Frontperson and currently fronts both the internationally acclaimed Phoenix rock act The Love Me Nots and an electrofuzz duo known as Zero Zero. Guitarist Michael Johnny Walker is on Phoenix New Times’ list of the Top 10 Phoenix Guitarists, founded and currently performs with The Love Me Nots, performs in Fender’s “Soul of Tone” video with Dweezil Zappa, and both produces and performs with Zero Zero. Bassist Rik Collins toured and recorded extensively
with legendary garage rock act The Seeds before founding and performing with The Woolly Bandits.
