Mutemath Books Fall Tour Following Honda Civic Dates
In August, Mutemath will head out on the road with Linkin Park and Incubus for nearly a month’s worth of previously announced dates as part of the Honda Civic Tour. Now, the group has announced that they will continue on the road after those dates with their own headlining tour.
The new dates will kick off three days after the end of the Civic tour on September 13 at the Marquee Theatre in Phoenix, Ariz., and is scheduled to continue through October 23 when the band will perform at the Varsity Theatre in Baton Rogue, La.
In between, the group will play cities all around North America, including Colorado Springs, Colo.; Bloomington, Ill.; Toronto; Buffalo, N.Y.; Charlottesville, Va.; Birmingham, Ala. and Knoxville, Tenn. Civil Twilight are scheduled to open all dates.
The Civic Tour with Incubus and Linkin Park is set to play amphitheaters around North America and will begin August 11 in Bristow, Va. Before that, Mutemath will play two shows with Jane’s Addiction: August 6 in Cleveland, Ohio and August 8 in Syracuse, N.Y.
The group is on the road supporting its most recent album, Odd Soul, which was released in October of last year. The album is the first not to feature original member Greg Hill, and drummer Darren King said last year that the new album brings a new sound for the group – he described it as sounding like Led Zeppelin playing music by the Meters. The album entered the Billboard 200 Albums charts at number 24.
The group was formed in 2001, but rose to a wider prominence with their 2006 self-titled album. “Control,” a song from the album, won a Dove Award for Best Modern Rock Song, and the band was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Short Form Video for their song “Typical.”
