The iconic Seattle band that is Mudhoney is making their way across the US right now and will hit the West Coast next month. After kicking their tour off October 13th, they still have stops in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Nashville (where we will get a preview for you), before arriving in SoCal.
After forming in Seattle in 1988, Mudhoney – featuring founding members Mark Arm (vocals, guitar), Dan Peters (drums), and Steve Turner (guitar), along with longtime member Guy Maddison (bass) – helped pioneer the grunge movement with their punk alt sound. While not as “mainstream” famous as Nirvana or Pearl Jam, any true fan of the genre knows Mudhoney thanks to their debut single, “Touch Me I’m Sick” and that fuzzy distortion guitar intro.
The band would release their 1988 debut EP, “Superfuzz Bigmuff,” on the legendary Sub Pop Records and become an inspiration to countless bands of the genre.
They have continued to tour and release albums through the decades with their latest offering being “Plastic Eternity,” released in April 2023, also on Sub Pop.
Check out singles “Almost Everything,” “Move Under,” and the one with the best video ever, “Little Dogs.”
Supporting Mudhoney this fall is Hooveriii, a “psychedelic space rock” band from Los Angeles. The group just released a fantastic album entitled “Pointe,” and I suggest you give a listen to “The Ship That I Sail” and “Dreaming.”
For locals, catch Mudhoney and Hooveriii on November 12th in San Diego at Casbah, or November 14th in Los Angeles at Teragram Ballroom.
Make sure to pick up the city specific tour poster because they are freaking amazing!
