Mudhoney to Release New Album in 2013 -
The new LP, which will be the follow-up to 2008's 'The Lucky Ones' and titled 'Vanishing Point' will be released on 2nd April 2013.
Mark Arm said to Spin:
"We amassed a pile of riffs and ideas, and I went through them and tried to come up with words that suited them. Pretty exciting."
He goes on to explain how the forthcoming album was produced with the stage in mind:
"This is a record. In many ways our focus is live performance because that's what we do more often than we record, but there are a lot of people whom we won't get to play for, who might only be able to pick up the record. So if something serves a song in the studio, we might as well go for it. We're not going to bring around a guy on tour to play clavinet or synthesizer on just one song. Now, if we only knew someone who could play both."
Mark also reveals in the interview that the Seattle sound veterans have tentative plans to tour Europe in late May and early June of next year, with the possibility of one-off shows in the US should their schedule permit.
