Hailing from the renowned music city of New Orleans, MUTEMATH will return to our shores fresh from a mammoth UK and US tour, and off the back of releasing their 4th studio album, Vitals, in November last year. The self-produced Vitals has garnered rave reviews from around the globe, and marks a departure from the band’s previous alt-rock sound: MUTEMATH’S transformation from garage to club complete. Bluesy guitar riffs are replaced by disco-tinged synths and thumping bass-lines, with frontman Paul Meany’s vocals soaring high above the synth-swell.

MUTEMATH describe current single Monument as ‘a song that rejoices in the present, refusing to wait for something to be gone in order to celebrate it. It is the centre that holds this ambitious collection together.’ The documentary-style music video was premiered on the Ellen DeGeneres Show last week, and features Charles ‘LaLa’ Evans, a hometown hero from Starkville, Mississippi. After his wife passed away, LaLa turned their home into a monument to her and the love they shared for 60 years, decorating the ‘museum’ seasonally and guiding people through the story of their love on daily tours. It’s a powerfully emotive story, beautifully captured in MUTEMATH’s stunning video.

The band performed a passionate rendition of Monument live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show recently, following on from a swathe of television appearances last year including Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Watch MUTEMATH’s official Monument video clip, the live Ellen performance, and catch LaLa Evans filling Ellen in on his monumental love story.

MUTEMATH have enjoyed a steady ascent over the past decade, gaining a reputation as an invigorating live act and earning a 2008 Grammy nomination for Best Short Form Music Video for Typical, lifted from the 2006 self-titled release. 2011’s Odd Soul saw the4-piece reach new heights, drawing comparisons to the likes of The Black Keys and others from the post-rock/electronica realm, and scoring a Triple J Feature Album along with international festival appearances at Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds Festivals.

With magnetic on-stage energy and showmanship, MUTEMATH are a band that ‘breathes new life into every song, often delivering something wholly different from the studio cut’. They are absolutely not to be missed live.
