“‘Stroll On’ is a quintessential example of the subgenre of progressive rock MUTEMATH thrives in, with trippy instrumentation-a bouncing ping-pong ball, comical space noises, and the kick of an electric drum machine (that’s actually a real drum!)-all blending together for an elegantly smooth sound.” –Fast Company

GRAMMY-nominated electro-experimental rock band MUTEMATH have released another new track from their highly anticipated forthcoming studio album Play Deadout September 8th.  
PRESS HERE to listen to “Stroll On”.  More album information and full tracklisting can be found below.
 “Stroll On, in particular, was a jam we recorded about 5 years ago when we started writing for our last record Vitals,” frontman Paul Meany states. “We shelved it, probably because I didn’t have a vocal idea for it. But when I did a shelf inventory for this new album, that track grabbed me by the throat and demanded a vocal.  I’m not gonna curse this song and say it’s my favorite (because when I do, that usually becomes a least favorite for fans), but just know that I don’t not like this song a lot, and I don’t not love what I find on the shelf sometimes 😉

Just last month, the band received rave reviews for the album’s first single, “Hit Parade,” with Entertainment Weekly calling it “chilled-out, soul-inflected psychedelic rock; [a] groovy first cut from their upcoming Play Dead.” The collection deviates from the sunbeam laced songs that comprised 2015’s Vitals, the electronic spin of 2016’s Changes, and their latest release, a collaboration EP with Twenty One Pilots entitled TØPxMM (The MUTEMATH Sessions). In making this new music, the band took an unhinged and unguarded approach, while also pulling inspiration from previous albums including, 2011’s fan-favorite Odd Soul.

Fans can PRE-ORDER Play Dead TODAY. The collection will be available via all digital and streaming services, CD, cassette, and on vinyl in both black and limited edition opaque orange.  Coming soon and exclusively via MUTEMATH’s artist store, CD/LP album bundles will come with a limited edition T-shirt and enamel pin, cassette & digital download of the record (while supplies last). 

Additionally, MUTEMATH will be embarking on a massive U.S. Tour this fallPLAY DEAD LIVE kicks off in Boston on September 14th and will run through late October. Full tour routing can be found below.
