Mr. Bungle’s Trevor Dunn Launches Riverworm Records, Readies New SpermChurch Album


Bassist Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, Tomahawk, etc.) has launched his own label Riverworm Records. The first release through the venture will be the new album “merdeka atau mati” from his outfit SpermChurch. You can expect that album out on September 03rd.

That ‘poly-electro, pan-genre duo’ finds him teamed up with Sannety overseeing the electronic aspects. A video for the first single “A Puzzle & Not Intended For Use” can be found below. Pre-orders for “merdeka atau mati” can be found here.

Dunn commented of launching a label:

“Like most DIY labels, I started my own because I could find no appropriate home for this first release. The idea of a ‘label’ is nearly defunct as marketing is essentially all DIY, that is, unless you are a heavyweight influencer, corporation or actual rock star. This is mom and pop at its most niche-within-niche.

I know I’m absolutely insane or branding myself mid-pandemic in a world where art is nearly expected to be free for the consumer but the will to have this music heard is part of what drives me. I’ve never expected everyone to like everything. That goes against common sense. That’s why everyone has boundaries. Having total control of a very personal release is the core motivation, and the feeling that, at this ripe old age, my own branding is as relevant as any grass fed mammal.”
