More Info:Muck is a fresh and urgent export from the vibrant Icelandic creative underground. Formed back in Reykjavik in 2007 as young scholars of all things raw and heavy, the band have organically crafted their riotous sound from hardcore roots and throughout several EPs and the ‘Slaves’ LP back in 2002.
Muck learned their art through frenetic live performances, equally happy at no-holes-barred DIY punk shows and experimental performance art events. They’ve toured the European underground clubs with Denmark’s Hexis and Whorls, broadened their horizons across the US with performances alongside Ceremony, Castevet, and Citizen’s Arrest and found themselves invited to perform at New York’s art residency, Clocktower in Lower Manhattan. Closer to home, they’ve also commanded a premium slot at the prestigious Eistnaflug Festival and been a serious highlight at the Icelandic Airwaves events over the past few years.
Returning to the studio with Icelandic producer, Frikki, they recorded their brand new album “Your Joyous Future” and Alan Douches (Converge, Baroness, The Dismemberment Plan) completed the mastering. Upon hearing the new opus, Prosthetic Records were eager to settle a deal and add the band to their vibrant roster. Venomous, forward-thinking and discordant, “Your Joyous Future” will be released by prosthetic in February 2015.
