Electric Valley Records presents Mystery Dudes’ debut LP, Exit Through the Wormhole, due out 24 June 2022 on four variations of vinyl and digital/streaming platforms.
Mystery Dudes will melt your face off with their eclectic, fuzzed-out blend of stoner rock, punk, and heavy psych. Regardless of style, the sonic output is always heavy, hypnotic, and hits you in all the right places at once! Hailing from the far-out corners of Norway’s wasteland, the hard-hitting power trio made Oslo their home base. Over there, they cultivated heavy riffs and catchy tunes in their secret lair before unleashing the beast now known as Mystery Dudes.
In the fall of 2019, Mystery Dudes self-released their first EP, First Blood, on digital media and good old fashion cassettes (Interstellar Smoke Records later issued the EP on vinyl in July 2020). Soon after, they played their first gig, opening for The W Likes in Hamar, Norway. Since then, the band have played shows in Oslo, including a live stream from the legendary autonomous house Blitz.
Mystery Dudes spent the 2020-21 period recording and mixing their debut album, Exit Through The Wormhole, which paved the way for their signing with Electric Valley Records. On Exit Through the Wormhole, Mystery Dudes circulate all kinds of psychedelic, progressive, and punked-out music from the sixties onward. The album is a spaced-out stoner punk odyssey through a variety of themes and soundscapes — imagine a place with ghost trains, nebulas, evil blood, and eyeballin’ witches.
