Following MUTEMATH’s first two independent releases, the electro-experimental rock band ended 2016 by joining forces with Twenty One Pilots to drop a surprise collaboration TØPxMM (The MUTEMATH Sessions). The band re-arranged and produced alternative versions of 4 songs from TØP’s critically acclaimed 2015 record Blurryface, plus their newest single from the Suicide Squad Soundtrack, “Heathens.” Filmed & recorded live with all 6 members of both bands, the compilation reached #1 on the iTunes Alternative Charts, and has 4.5+ million views on YouTube.
To kick off 2017, frontman Paul Meany teamed up with bass music innovator Seven Lions and trance-legend Jason Ross to bring fans “Higher Love,” released on Anjunabeats and reaching #1 on the Beatport Trance charts. Meanwhile, Drummer Darren King was invited to sit-in with The 8G Band on Late Night with Seth Meyers the week of January 23rd.
The band is finishing up their fifth studio record, the next step in a series of several to redefine a constantly evolving band. From jazz to rock, psychedelic to indie, ambient to electronica, MUTEMATH is back and dedicated to building onto their already genre-bending career. Their fifth LP is due out this year.
