Mutoid Man is a supergroup. Mutoid Man defies all of the trappings that come with that. But more than anything Mutoid Man is fun. At a recent "surprise" gig at Brooklyn's St. Vitus, the trio boozily ran through selections from their debut EP and forthcoming Bleeder LP all while trading middle fingers in between complex instrumentation and covering Tom Jones's "She's a Lady." No furrowed brow seriousness, despite their hardcore-meets-math complexity, just a badass riff fest and a damn good time.
Their approach and the PMA that comes with it shines through on Bleeder, which hits on June 30 via Sargent House (get it on iTunes or in physical formats), and is streaming below for the first time. Check that out in full while you read an interview with Stephen Brodsky on the past and future of Cave In, the formation of Mutoid Man, and keeping it family.
