“Yeah, the world sucks. But 30 years in, Mudhoney does not.” [Digital Garbage] - Seattle Times

“They simply sound like a better, defter, maybe even snottier version of their younger selves on their 10th album.” [Digital Garbage] - Rolling Stone

 “The Seattle scuzz-punk pioneers deliver a grave diagnosis of a festering societal condition.” [Digital Garbage] - Pitchfork 

Today, Sep 20th, Sub Pop Records is releasing Morning in America, a new 7-song EP of tracks recorded during the sessions for Mudhoney’s 2018 album, Digital Garbage (“…an astute, politically relevant and commendably fired-up garage punk belter of an LP,” – The Quietus). The tracks include “Let’s Kill Yourself Live Again” (an alternate version of the Digital Garbage stand-out “Kill Yourself Live,” and the bonus track for the Japanese CD version of that album), “One Bad Actor” (a new version of Mudhoney’s track on the limited-edition, and now very sold-out, SPF30 split 7” single w Hot Snakes), album outtakes “Snake Oil Charmer,” “Morning in America” and “Creeps Are Everywhere,” plus “Ensam I Natt” (“So Lonely Tonight,” a Leather Nun cover) and “Vortex of Lies” from a very limited EU tour 7”.
 
The songs were mixed at Johnny Sangster’s studio Crackle & Pop! The release of this EP coincides with Mudhoney’s fall 2019 US tour which finds the band playing the Ohana Festival in Dana Point, CA, and then Boston, Philadelphia, Durham, Atlanta, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and several other cities, ending on Oct 19th in Brooklyn, NY. See below for a full list of dates and supporting artists. 


 
Morning in America will only be available on 12” vinyl and through digital services. This new Mudhoney EP is available from Sub Pop starting now. And, the limited Loser Edition of Morning in America, on white vinyl marbled with black in the US and Silver in (UK/EU), is available from megamart.subpop.com and select independent retailers in North America, UK, and Europe, while supplies last.

Hear Corridor’s “Domino” a Whimsical, Driving Track From ‘Junior,’ Their Forthcoming New Album Out October 18th

International tour dates on the books October 23rd-December 13th, 2019.

You can now hear Corridor’s “Domino,” a new single and insistent highlight from Junior, their forthcoming album. The band’s inventive genius is on full display here, showcasing what might be their best trick – creating singular tunes that are purposeful, full of songcraft, even as they let loose, slip their collar.

CLASH says of the track, ““’Domino’ opens with gilded dream pop with chiming guitars and frosted melodies from the streets of Montreal, before crunching into a chugging Krautrock breakdown. Dominated by a bassline straight out of Neu!’s mighty ‘Hallagallo’ the song climaxes with a straight up No Wave thrash, all downstrokes, fury, and feedback-soaked melody.”

Corridor’s Jonathan Robert had this to say of the song, “People are often glorifying what being an artist or a musician can mean. Art doesn’t necessarily make you a better person. There can be angst, stress and so on. It can have a negative, direct impact on the people closest to you. ‘Domino’ is about navigating just that. It is the first song out of Junior that we’ve composed and we’ve played it live quite a few times already.”
