Mutoid Man

Two bands who mix metal and heavy blues, Mutoid Man and Royal Thunder, will ring in the new year together in NYC. They play New Year's Eve and New Year's Day at Saint Vitus with different openers each night. The first is with Ageist and the second is with UnWed (mem Hot Water Music, Small Brown Bike). Tickets for NYE and NYD are on sale now. No other dates announced at the moment.

One band that made it is Wild Throne, who Mutoid Man played Invisible Oranges SXSW with in 2014, and who Royal Thunder toured with this year.
