Mudhoney marks 25th anniversary with new ‘Vanishing Point’ LP — download first track

This April marks the 25th anniversary of both Mudhoney and its label, Seattle’s Sub Pop Records, and the proto-grunge act will mark the occasion with the release of its ninth studio album, Vanishing Point — which you can preview now via a free download of first single “The Only Son of the Widow from Nain.”

The 10-song album is due out April 1 in Europe and April 2 in North America via Sub Pop on CD, LP and digital download.

Sub Pop notes: “The band isn’t masquerading as teenaged, beer-soaked goofballs wandering high school hallways-these are songs written from the rare vantage point of a band who went through the rock n’ roll meat-grinder and not only lived to tell such a tale, they came out full of the wisdom and dark humor such a journey provides.”

Mudhoney will mark the release with a pair of  Pacific Northwest record-release shows, in Portland and Seattle, before embarking on a three-week European tour running from late May through early June.  Additional U.S. dates are promised “soon,” and the band says it might play South America this year, too.
