In case you missed it, MTVoid, featuring Tool’s Justin Chancellor and vocalist Peter Mohamed, are set to release their second album, Matter’s Knot, Pt. 1, on November 10 via Lobal Orning. The seven-track, self-produced album blends sound and ideas from Los Angeles to Swarzędz, Poland. During the initial announcement, the duo unveiled a Jimmy Hayward-directed video for their new single, “MaBeLu.” 


Mohamed commented: 

“It all started with a child weeping. I heard it very early in between the notes, in between the noises. It was a fragile process that took me to all of those places that come crashing down, places that burn down to the ground leaving broken humans; lonely and sad children. It was at the time of the huge explosion in Beirut, and I was channeling my energy and trying to put myself in the mind of this child watching the catastrophe from under the ruins. The sound, the bass, the noises, and the beat all started to tell the story. Apocalypse Now… seeing the reality through the eye of cataclysm… I still believe we will get through this… we are falling off the cliff… Humanity needs that. This art drops right on the top of the wave that comes crashing and bringing the greatest transformation of our times. It’s terrifying and fascinating at the same time. ‘MaBeLu,’ I love you. I believe in you, and I will see you on the other side. Be strong.”
