Athens, GA’s Muuy Biien releasing ‘Age of Uncertainty’ (watch “Another Chore” video), on tour now
Athens, GA’s Muuy Biien have been around for most of this decade, initially known for their update on hardcore and unpredictable, high energy live shows. That spirit was captured on the band's 2012 debut, This Is What Your Mind Imagines, but by the time of their second album, 2014's D.I.Y. (both came out on Athens label Happy Happy Birthday to Me), their sound had gotten darker, weirder and more sparse.
Muuy Biien are now set to release their new album, Age of Uncertainty, via Autumn Tone/Epitaph on October 28. The band made the LP with Sugar's David Barbe and the first single is "Another Chore" which brings a dub production style to their fuzzed-out aesthetic. We've got the premiere of its video and main man Joshua Evans told us a little bit about it and the song:
"Another Chore" is a song about annoying, unambitious people. Robbie and I tracked the song at our house (Athens) in less than an hour with no preconceptions, or prospects for that matter. We chose to shoot the video while on tour in New York City with our friend Jorge Torres-Torres. This allowed us to approach the video in a stream of conscious fashion, similar to the song. Saxophones.
You can watch the gritty, compelling and slightly NSFW video below.
Muuy Bien are currently on tour, and will be in NYC on September 1 at Rough Trade where they will play with Australia's Hockey Dad and Brooklyn's Sharkmuffin. Tickets are still available.
