OUT 22.03.19
includes the new single
muet is the sound of American noir. Sonically defiant art rock sung under the shadow of a long brim hat.
Deliberate dissonance and heartbreaking melody stitched together beneath sodium light with tales of the
tragic, the romantic and the bizarre. The band features Steven Seibold, Daniel Evans and Vince McAley,
who have all served time in post-industrial bands such as Pigface, Chemlab, Die Warzau and Hate Dept.
Based out of Chicago, the trio are about to release their eponymous debut album.
A video for a single entitled ‘muscle’ has just been made available, with muet stating that the filming of it
“was the first time we had all actually played in the same room together as a band. We made the album
entirely by remote due to our singer [Steven Siebold] living a few hours away from the rest of the band in
Chicago. We traded files back and forth, the band recording demos and sending them to Steven and he
would send vocal takes back. Somehow, it seemed to gel quickly. So, we’re actually playing together for
the first time in this video, and we are really playing, not miming along to the song like most videos. We
were so excited and perhaps a little nervous to put all the pieces together and play, that it seems to give
the video an endearing quality. The editing was done by Vince McAley [band drummer], while our friend
Myles Arwine did a phenomenal job capturing and directing the footage. We can’t thank him enough.”
