Mutoid Man, the relatively new trio of Stephen Brodsky (Cave In) on guitar and vocals, Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die) on drums and Nick Cageao on bass, recently finished recording a new full-length album that will be available this summer from Sargent House. The band spent the bulk of January 2015 at God City Studios in Salem, MA with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Torche, High On Fire) laying down the tracks, and documented the process via photo and video. Today, the DeciBlog has premiered an in-studio video featuring a non-album version of their new song "Bridgeburner" along with a collection of photos from the session (and a hilarious new interview) here.
Mutoid Man's soon-to-be-announced new album is the successor to 2013’s critically acclaimed EP Helium Head, which was hailed as “a seriously off the hook brilliant debut” (Decibel Magazine) and “teeming with bluesy riffs, firing-quad drumming and chaotic time signatures” (Exclaim). Vocalist/guitarist Stephen Brodsky said of the new songs: “These tracks are still riding the high of Helium Head; there are even a few unfinished pieces from that period we might revisit on this record. Writing with Nick is spinning our brains in new directions, too.”
Mutoid Man sold out their headlining Red Bull Sound Select show in Seattle last week and are looking to do the same in Brooklyn on March 11th at St. Vitus Bar this coming Wednesday. More live performances and album info to be announced very soon.
