Bio: Single Mothers broke up in 2009, 2011, 2015 and have been playing shows ever since.

Founded by Drew Thomson in 2008 Single Mothers only relied on one main principle: it
wouldn't have any members. For the most part -- they have stayed true to that, and only that.
Spanning a discography of genre-morphing LPs and a myriad of EPs the only constant is
that none of it sounds the same. Each album has different members, different songwriters,
different ideas. For a while there were even two versions of the band going at the same time,
with completely different people. Through all this Thomson left the band and moved to
Swastika, Ontario to be a gold prospector. Single Mothers continued without him.

While Thomson was searching for gold in Northern Ontario Single Mothers released their first
S/T EP, which they recorded before he left, with Jeremy Bolm's (Touché Amoré) Secret Voice
Records. The band with no members played a sting of shows with different singers before
Thomson returned. That EP sent the band touring with Title Fight, Quick Sand, Touché Amore,
The Bronx and many others.

The first LP Negative Qualities was recorded twice, produced by Joby Ford (The Bronx) and
came out in 2014 - 10 years ago, on XL Records imprint Hot Charity to critical acclaim and led
to festival appearances like Pitchfork Fest, Redding & Leeds, Primavera Sound, Riot Fest and
many others. Then, as Single Mothers were picking up speed, they fell apart and started over.
Now, 10 years later - in celebration of the record that tried to kill them, they're back to play it in
full. These are the best songs from the worst years of my life. Thomson recounts, and I
wouldn't have it any other way.
