MuteMath to play the House of Blues

, Staff

MuteMath will kick of a winter tour in support of their new album, Odd Soul, this week. The alternative rockers will make their way to Massachusetts for a show at Boston’s House of Blues on Wednesday, March 7. Tickets are now on sale through Live Nation for $28 and $38. For every pair of tickets purchased online, fans will receive a digital copy of Odd Soul with a special instrumental version of the album and a behind the scenes video of the making of “Blood Pressure” video.

Odd Soul, MuteMath’s third studio effort, debuted at #24 on the Billboard 200 after its release last October. The self-produced record, which is the band’s first without longtime guitarist Greg Hill, is also the first album where keyboardist Paul and drummer Darren King fully collaborated on lyrics. The new songwriting process resulted in material that added a subtle spiritual dimension to the MuteMath’s work.

“The lyrical idea of this record is loosely based on our upbringing in what I guess you could call eccentric Christianity,” explained Meany in a press release. “We wanted to celebrate, up front and center, what we used to think was best kept in the shadows, our weird religious roots,” drummer Darren King added. “The challenge we took on with this record was to become more lyrically honest, vulnerable, and specific than before, with music that was as exhilarating as some of the most charged up shows we had done up to that point. ”

The album’s title track is also available for purchase through a unique video mixer platform by Mashable.com. The mixer includes separate videos for the drum, guitar, vocals, synth and background vocal parts, allowing listeners to create their own version of the song by muting and mixing each part.
