Mudhoney are releasing their new album Digital Garbage on September 28th through Sub Pop. The 11-track record follows 2013’s Vanishing Point and is the Grunge legends’ 10th studio album.
The band just released a new single titled “Kill Yourself Live” which features a line that inspired the album’s title and comments on “the way notoriety goes viral.” Vocalist Mark Arm elaborated:
“I’m not on social media, so my experience is somewhat limited, but people really seem to find validation in the likes — and then there’s Facebook Live, where people have streamed torture and murder, or, in the case of Philando Castile, getting murdered by a cop.
In the course of writing that song, I thought about how, once you put something out there online, you can’t wipe it away. It’s always going to be there — even if no one digs it up, it’s still out there floating somewhere.”
Listen to the song below.
