The alternative rock band Mutemath was formed in 2003 in New Orleans.

In January 2006 Mutemath independently released their self-titled first album. Over 10,000 copies were sold over the Internet during the first month of its release. The band made the covers of Pollstar and Billboard and was featured in Spin, Paste and Alternative Press. Mutemath continued touring and performing at festivals like Voodoo Music Experience, CMJ Music Marathon, V Festival, Van's Warped Tour, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo. The band's album was re-released by Warner in September 2006. It debuted in the No. 17 spot on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart.
In August 2009 Mutemath released "Armistice," the band's second album. "Armistice" debuted in the No. 18 spot on Billboard's 200 chart. The album sold 18,000 copes during the first week of its release. "Armistice" reached the No. 3 spot on Billboard's Digital Albums and Alternative Albums charts and No. 4 on Billboard's Rock chart. The band released "Odd Soul," their third album, in October 2011. Todd Gummerman replaced Greg Hill as Mutemath's guitarist. The band is touring in support of Incubus and Linkin Park on the Honda Civic Tour.
