Mudhoney Release First New Single in 5 Years

It seems like everyone has gotten their shit together for 2013. About a month ago, we got word that after five years of “amassing a pile of riffs and ideas,” Mudhoney’s first new album in 5 years was finally finished. Called Vanishing Point, the album is set to be released April 1st, which kind of seems like a long ways away. However, to keep us hanging on, they have released a new song “The Only Son of the Widow From Nain” (yeah, that’s a mouthful) for free download.

The band has aged rather nicely over the past 25 years.  However, while they are tranquil together, these old fucks have definitely not mellowed out over the years. If anything, they are as pissed off and volatile as usual and they take out this pent up rage on their guitars. Mark Arm is vocal as ever, declaring the band’s back to fuck up shit by bellowing out “I’m coming back, for more.” Simple lyrics, yes, but potent as hell when being howled by a geezer who might just kill you if you get too close.

You can download the new song over at SPIN right now (sorry, WordPress doesn’t let you embed shit easily). Give it a listen and get stoked that we live in a year where you can now add Mudhoney on to the list of cool shit that we have coming out this year. Touch Me I’m Sick is right.
