Mutoid Man Officially Recruit High On Fire’s Jeff Matz As Their New Bassist


Mutoid Man have confirmed the rumors of High On Fire bassist Jeff Matz having newly joined their lineup. Matz replaces Nick Cageo in the group. Speaking of the band’s newest member, vocalist/guitarist Stephen Brodsky offered:

“Countless times we’ve asked ourselves ‘What would High On Fire do?’ while writing music over the years — now we can go straight to the source! Getting to know Jeff has been a real treat, and his devotion to music is nothing short of astounding. We’re pumped for the next chapter of Mutoid Man now having Jeff on board with his unparalleled 4-stringed Thunderclapping fury!”

Drummer Ben Koller added:

Jeff was at the top of our list for new bass mutants, and after playing with him the first day it became obvious that he was the only choice. He is so dedicated to his craft and we are thrilled to be creating new mutations with him.”

Matz himself also spoke of his new role:

“I’m thrilled and honored that the Mutoid dudes have entrusted me to handle bass duties. From the first time we jammed together it felt great, and it just continues to get better. Steve and Ben are two of the most ripping and creative musicians I’ve had the pleasure of playing with, and all-around awesome human beings to boot. Major props are due to Nick as well, he set the bar high with his great musicianship and writing. I’m looking forward to hitting the stage with these fine mutants, and can’t wait to unleash the new music we’ve been working on.”

The group are currently set to debut their new lineup live this Friday, August 20th at the Mandalay Bay Resort And Casino as part of this weekend’s ‘Psycho Las Vegas‘ festival. Their set will take place at 02:25pm.
