Currently wrapping up their Odd Soul Introduction Tour, rock innovators MUTEMATH will kick off 2012 with another tour that begins January 26th and criss-crosses the U.S. hitting Minneapolis on February 18th.. The band are touring in support of their new album Odd Soul, which was released on October 4th on Teleprompt/Warner Bros Records. The Grammy-nominated band, which is Paul Meany (vocals/keyboards), Roy Mitchell-Cardenas (bass), Darren King (drums), and Todd Gummerman (guitar), will also appear on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on November 4th.
"Blood Pressure," the first single from Odd Soul, is climbing the charts at Alternative Radio, while the video premiered on MTV, MTV2, MTVu, MTV Hits and MTV.com. MUTEMATH have been selected as VH1's "You Oughta Know" artist for the month of November. The band, which received a "Best Short Form Music Video" Grammy Award nomination in 2007 for its single "Typical," conceived, coordinated and shot the "Blood Pressure" clip in less than 24 hours. It was edited entirely by drummer Darren King.
"Blood Pressure" and Odd Soul are already receiving critical praise. The NY Post called the track "fantastic" and Alternative Press praised the album as "brimming with raw, bluesy riffs and psychedelic guitar squeals...MUTEMATH explore emotional depths both sonically and lyrically, bringing a new sense of urgency to their music. 4 ½ stars."
