The grunge figureheads return...

Grunge figureheads MUDHONEY are set to release their first studio album in four years on August 19.

‘Since We’ve Become Translucent’, which appears through Sub Pop, will feature a guest appearance by MC5 legend Wayne Kramer on the title track.

A limited edition single will precede the album. To mark the releases, the band will head to the UK in September for a very brief tour. They’ll play:

Nottingham Boat Club (September 9) Glasgow QMU (10) Manchester University (11) London Camden Electric Ballroom (12)
