[nypost.com] MUTEMATH - known for their innovative music videos and awesome live performances - is heading down the highway and hitting Roseland Ballroom on Wednesday (April 22).
Singer Paul Meany took a few minutes out of creating sweet, sweet music to answer a quartet of questions, including the story behind the song they recently premiered, "The Fight." (Stay tuned, we'll post the video of the live performance soon.)
Q: MUTEMATH is known for their amazing live shows - how do you prep for them?
A: We usually spend our time repairing everything that broke from the previous tour
Q: What's "The Fight" all about?
A: The idea for "The Fight" actually came to us while on our first tour in 2005. We wrote the beginnings of it on the road and wound up making a demo recording of it around the time of Hurricane Katrina, and I think to some degree it's always been connected to that sentiment. But for whatever reason the song never felt finished to us, so we just shelved it and figured that was it. But Just a couple months ago we were taking an inventory of shelf contents and "The Fight" really stood out. We started talking to some producers about it and it seemed like it was a song that needed to be completed ASAP. So we went to LA and worked with a great producer Dave Sardy and found the missing elements that song had been waiting for.
Q: You're putting out a DVD later this year. What can fans expect to see on it?
A: It's still hard to say, but there will definitely be performance footage from the Armistice Tour we just did this past Fall. Other than that, we're still sorting through a ton of possibilities that range from the making of Armistice we shot in New Orleans to unreleased music videos and video blogs.
Q: What do you like to do when you visit NY?
