Mudvayne bassist Ryan Martinie has been getting things in focus these days by hitting the studio to record with his jazz-rock ensemble, Soften the Glare.
The trio, which is rounded out by guitarist Bon Lozaga (Gong Expresso, Tiny Boxes) and drummer Mitch Hull (Jacked Up), has been working on their debut album with producer Jamie King, who’s known for his work with Between The Buried And Me. It’s being funded through a PledgeMusic campaign and should hit the streets this March.
According to a post on the crowdfunding site, their upcoming recording “weaves an instrumental jazz/rock direction with elements of metal, funk, prog and a touch of chaos!”
Fans looking to get an earful of what’s in store can check out their song “Mission Possible,” which is slated to appear on their debut. (SEE VIDEO BELOW.) Fans can pre-order the album through Soften the Glare’s PledgeMusic page.
Mudvayne hasn’t been active since 2010, a year after they released their self-titled fifth album.
