The BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music-supported art-rock trio, Mush, are today announcing details of an October 2021UK headline tour that will include a stop at London’s Moth Club on October 25, 2021.The run of dates arrives in support of the Leeds-based band’s critically-acclaimed second album, Lines Redacted (out now via Memphis Industries) which found support earlier this year at Uncut, Pitchfork, Sunday Times, The Quietus and more. Tickets available via the links below.

Lines Redacted was released in February 2021, just under a year after Mush’s debut LP, 3D Routine with the newly-announced headline dates coming as the first since before the debut release. Whereas 3D Routine was very much a product of its time, something part-inspired by the political atmosphere of mid-2019 and a genuine moment of optimism when the prospect of a socialist government in the UK was on the cards, this new record uses tongue-in-cheek cynicism as a coping mechanism for the environment that we now find ourselves in. Across twelve tracks, Lines Redacted introduces a string of different narrators with each providing a different reflection on the Armageddon scenario that we have gradually entered, whether that’s bemoaning it or gleefully willing it along.

Tipped for their debut by the likes of BBC 6 Music, Loud & Quiet, Uncut, Q, Stereogum, DIY, The Line of Best Fit, Dork and more, Mush, comprised of Hyndman (guitar/vox), Nick Grant (bass/vox) and Phil Porter (drums), present their own sonic idiosyncrasy. It’s a sound that blurs the lines of abstract surrealism, existentialism and social commentary; utilising guitars as tools to stave off malaise whilst simultaneously commenting on the nation’s ability to fall into such dire straits. It’s a sensory overload of wiry tones that zig-zag between punk, prog and sardonic-funk with a relentless ability to reflect society’s faults and apathy in a unique and acerbic manner.

Live shows alongside Girl Band, Shame, The Lovely Eggs, Stereolab, and more allowed tracks from 3D Routine to develop in the live capacity before becoming their fully-formed, recorded counterparts. Lines Redacted, on the other hand,is a product of supposed home-working and having more time to-hand; written at the tail end of an election cycle, in the midst of a pandemic and with a large-scale recession lingering like a dark blot on the edge of an ever-shrinking horizon.
