Mr. Bungle blow your mind
Experimental rock upstarts Mr. Bungle are back on the road in 2023, including their first East Coast dates in 23 years! Fittingly formed in the small Californian town of Eureka, the boundary-pushing band built their career and cult legendary status on being difficult to define. With the 1986 release of their first demo The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny and subsequent self-titled debut album in 1991, Mr. Bungle made it clear that they were genreless, fusing metal, jazz, ska, funk, techno, punk and noise rock into an avant-garde smorgasbord.
Becoming known for outrageous live shows in which band members would wear masks to hide their identities and perform surprising covers like the Star Wars theme, Mr. Bungle continued to break rules and take names until their breakup in 2000. Delighting fans by re-uniting in 2019 and releasing a brand new re-recording of the Raging Wrath demos, the current line up consists of Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn, Trey Spruan, ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian. Mr Bungle will be duly joined by the equally mindblowing math-rock band Battles on support for all dates.
