Co-produced by the band themselves, alongside Liam Trashmouth, ‘Songs For Our Mothers’ was recorded between London suburb New Malden and Marcata Studios in New Paltz in upstate New York. One song, ‘Satisfied’. was co-produced by Sean Lennon.

The band describe the album as being “as much a catalogue of our obsessions as it is a sensual odyssey; sex, drugs, politics, death, the Northern Irish A-lister Sam Neill”.
