UK trio Mush release new album “Lines Redacted” and here’s one last new single before the whole album drops. “The concept for “Hazmat Suits” bizarrely predates the pandemic,” explains frontman Dan Hyndman. “It then quickly became relevant and I retroactively rewrote some of the verses. I saw a group of guys in Hazmat Suits going into a building in Leeds town center around March, it was a really strong image that made me pick the tune-up again. It evoked a real modern dystopian vibe.”

The Leeds three piece, Mush’s new album Lines Redacted is out this week. Politically on point without being didactic, musically uncompromising yet as catchy as the Kent variant and as funny as it is coruscating, it’s Album of the Day on BBC 6 Music today and is getting praised to the rafters elsewhere:

One of the finest British guitar records of recent years” 8/10 UNCUT
“Rallying against aggravating, absurd political realities with passion and humor, the Leeds post-punks offer a tongue-in-cheek counterpoint to dourer contemporaries” Pitchfork
“Twisty indie rock that pulls from the gamut of the arch and angular” Brooklyn Vegan

New album Lines Redacted out 12th February 2021.
