Mutemath are a band that’s synonymous with reinvention. Over the course of five albums, they’ve challenged themselves and their listeners with a wide array of sounds. Their latest album, Play Dead, is a continuation of that mantra. The most interesting aspect of the band is how frontman Paul Meany can create songs in abstract worlds that still have a relatability to them that listeners can always latch onto.

For the latest edition of the 405 Exchange podcast, Ken Grand-Pierre spoke to Meany about the respect that comes with longevity, having fans who “get it”, and being comfortable with experimenting. Check out their conversation below, along with the video for 'War'.

“We’ve been able to share a significant arc of life with our audience and our fans.”
