Mutoid Man, the new trio featuring Stephen Brodsky (Cave In) on guitar and vocals, Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die) on drums and Nick Cageao on bass, has been added as a support act to Russian Circles' 10th anniversary East Coast tour.

The band will also play a headlining show at the Local 506 in Chapel Hill, NC.

After the tour wraps up, Mutoid Man will head to God City Studios in Salem, MA to record their debut full length with producer Kurt Ballou, who plays with Koller in Converge.

The album, which will be released via Sargent House, comes off the heels of Helium Head, Mutoid Man's critically-acclaimed 2013 EP.

In a press release announcing the album, Brodsky had this to say:

"These tracks are still riding the high of Helium Head; there are even a few unfinished pieces from that period we might revisit on this record. Writing with Nick is spinning our brains in new directions, too."
