ICYMI: Check out Mutank streaming “P.O.P.U.L.O.U.S.” here! On Tour with Annihilator and Mason on the “Cross Canada” Tour!

Montreal thrash champions MUTANK will be embarking on their first ever cross Canada tour with legends ANNIHILATOR (dates listed below) in support of their new EP “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.” due out June 16th via Boonsdale Records. The new EP from the 2014 Wacken Metal Battle Canada winners is short, but sweet to follow their debut cassette EP “M.E.C.H. Metal” and is a taste of what’s to come from the band’s full length planned to be unleashed later this year. The five track demolisher “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.” was produced with Topon Das (Fuck The Facts) and is a step up from what people have heard from MUTANK thus far.
Vocalist/bassist Stephen Reynolds comments:

“Someone is gonna hurt their neck listening to this…This upcoming EP ‘W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T’ sort of started as a joke. I just thought it would be funny to force an acronym for ‘what’s that?’ and I came up with ‘We Have Alottta Thrash Songs That Have Abbreviated Titles’. From there we came up with the concept of an EP with a bunch of forced acronym titles. The EP itself was written somewhat conceptually with the individual songs being very short thrash songs that come together to make one longer progressive thrash track, which harkens back to the title since we don’t even know what it is! We have a ton of new material in the works as well, people can expect new stuff sooner rather than later!”

“their hybrid thrash, traditional, speed metal makes for a great heavy experience” – We Love Metal
“WAR is a vicious sonic attack… [M.E.C.H. Metal] it’s a ferocious delight.” – Powerplay Magazine UK
