Moths are a Progressive/Stoner Metal band from San Juan, Puerto Rico that blends powerful riffs with unexpected and increasingly progressive undertones. The band was founded by Weslie Negrón (Bass), Jonathan Miranda (Lead Guitar), and Omar González (Rhythm Guitar) in 2016 with the later addition of Damaris Rodríguez (Vocals) and Daniel Figueroa (Drums).
Moths released their debut, self-titled EP on November 2nd, 2018, gaining attention from important music websites like Bandcamp, Heavy Blog is Heavy, and Dead Rhetoric, among others. The band embarked on their first mainland tour with a short run in the northeastern United States, where the band got a great response from audiences.
In June 2020, their track “Adhara & Ray” was part of the Stimulus Swim mixtape curated by Adult Swim, which had the band featured both in Adult Swim’s website and their TV programming. With Damaris’ aggressive but melodic vocals, Omar’s catchy riffs, Jonathan’s unorthodox leads, Weslie’s solid bass lines, and Daniel’s extreme drumming, Moths creates a perfect balance between heavy and cohesive music.
