The New Orleans based MUTEMATH is one of those bands that I hear about all the time, but didn’t know much about them. A little while back I thought I’d take a little bit of time and look a little closer at the band to see what they’re all about. The friends that like them, like a variety of genres of music and I would loosely categorize this band as alt rock band leaning towards that super catchy/poppy side of things. Lots of keys/guitar mix and drums that sound electronic. When listening to this band you immediately get in the groove. I definitely can see why people can get into this band.

A couple of days ago, I saw that Premier Guitar just posted a Rig Rundown on MUTEMATH, so I had to see what these guys were running as far as effects. Check out the video:

Okay.. the first thing that grabbed my attention was the fact that Roy Mitchell was not using any amps. This is the second time I heard reference of Palmer DIs being used in live situations. The first I heard of this was from the recent Cure World Tour. Both Reeves Gabrels and Robert Smith had amps on stage, but none of them were mic’d. I asked Reeves about this and he said that they used Palmers to route signal to Front of House. The amps were just for stage volume. All I know, is that the Palmer signal getting blasted to the crowd – sounded amazing.

Here is the break down of pedals for Roy and Todd:
