Mutemath Announces "Odd Soul" as New Album

Old soul? No, Odd Soul. New Orleans' rock innovators MUTEMATH have announced that they will release their third album for Teleprompt/Warner Bros. Records, entitled, Odd Soul, on October 4th, 2011. The album, which was produced by the band, is the follow-up to 2009's Armistice.
Odd Soul came together over the course of six months, during which the members of Mutemath - Paul Meany (vocals/keyboards), Roy Mitchell-Cardenas (bass/guitar), and Darren King (drums) - locked themselves down at Meany's home studio in New Orleans and didn't emerge until they were ready to play it for others. Hunkering down, right, boys?
"The idea of complete isolation was the only thing that appealed to us. No camera guys, no producers, no engineers, no record label people, no management. No one would hear or comment on what we were doing until we were done," Meany says. "We didn't want to make blurry music. We set out to record something that was unapologetically us." We love them for it, too! No blurry tunes!
Fans will get a first taste of Odd Soul when Mutemath introduce their songs during two very special shows in August. The band will perform at the Troubadour in Los Angeles on August 16th and at the Mercury Lounge in New York City on August 25th. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first served basis beginning July 5th.
