Having spent a lot of time recently working as a collaborator with Sunn 0))), thenor, Miracle and Grumbling Fur as well as his much acclaimed work as part of Ulver, O Sullivan felt it was time to return to Mothlite so as to work on something unequivocally personal:
All the other things are collaborations and theres a communal interest, but with Mothlite the content is quite personal and to do with me. Its quite easy to neglect, particularly when youre in a bit of a shit storm as I was the past couple of years.

The album has allowed O Sullivan to break free from the confines of genre, taking influence from the likes of Tears For Fears and Kate Bush from his parents record collection through the industrial and gothic textures of DAF, The Cure, Coil and Dead Can Dance to the hardcore punk of his own personal roots.
