The Mutineers recently released their video for “Drug For That”, set in the river valleys of the Pacific Northwest. Joined by their long time collaborator Clovis IV on camera/video director duty, they explore places where decay and growth are intermingled; places where beautiful buildings that once held so much promise, are left to rot away—shadows of someone’s else’s dream.
The song serves as a blistering commentary & dystopian take on current social attitudes, for those who would like to get back to the basics of life.
Singer and guitarist Brian Mathusek roamed the world from far East to West and countless places in-between, en-route to founding The Mutineers. Along the way, he gathered stories of hope and fear, love and loss. If there is one constant theme throughout Mathusek’s songwriting, it’s an openness and honesty that comes straight from the heart. Joined by his wife Merry Young on drums and on the road, the now duo have played 120+ dates all across the US, for their latest album.
Brian and Merry returned to Merry’s home state of Oregon and have continued to hone their harmonies, tightened up their sound, and play continually tour dates & festivals such as the Treefort Music Fest, Wildwood Music Festival.
The Mutineers are just finishing up mixing their next release, Threshold with a release dates of September 14th, 2018.
