THE BIG TAKEOVER presents MOAT’s GONE BY NOON.
The MOAT project is releasing a taster from the upcoming album, POISON STREAM (to be released in early 2021 through Schoolkids Records). It’s been cooked for a while but the world hasn’t allowed us to open the oven door until now when the aroma proved too much and now it sits on the kitchen table waiting to be consumed.
GONE BY NOON has been described as “Catchy harpsichord-induced melancholia by a protagonist juggling the aftermath of loss and betrayal”. It will be available from the 9th September 2020 through all your favourite platforms but you can hear it first and exclusively via THE BIG TAKEOVER magazine right now, click here.

Lyrics by MARTY WILLSON-PIPER
The blood on your lips
Drips, red honey slips into a pool
The lies that you tell
Corrupt my heart
Infect my soul
Silence spills like a wave in the dark
The films you play
Black and white
A final scene – crying
And you’re gone
The shock in your eyes
Lies, the wailing cries
Of a tragic fool
Your game hides the truth
Dice, playing cards
Mirrored in the roof
You cheat with the best
When you’re caught you’re aloof
A silent shroud
The noise has gone
All that’s left – speechless
An empty shell
Love’s last tears
Have fallen down
From your cheek
The loaded words
Around the room
Against the glass – goodbye
Gone By Noon
Bandcamp are waiving their commission fees for one day only, kindly giving us musicians the chance to take advantage of a direct income source. So, 100% of the income will go to us. But, it’s specifically from Midnight Pacific time USA for 24 hours only (from 3AM New York / 7AM London / 6PM Sydney).
We have just added Noctorum’s Afterdeath EP for download. You can also download all four Noctorum albums, Seeing Stars and solo records, check it out to see what’s available. On the physical, we have also added some t-shirts and MOAT’s first album on vinyl (with free CD) and some In Deep tote bags. In Deep and Afterlife t-shirts have very limited sizes (all small and just one dbl XL), but we do have a range of Noctorum Honey Mink Forever t-shirts. Yay!
