Check out our interview with Austria’s finest punks – Mudfight!
For the unfortunate few who don’t know who you are, would you mind introducing yourselves?
Mudfight: We’re the Austrian punk band Mudfight and we are passionate musicians with big motivation to go on stage and do things our way!
We love to have fun, meeting and interacting with people and rocking the shit out of a venue!
In the effort of getting to know each other better – if you could be a sandwich, what sandwich would you be?
Mudfight: Surf and Turf! A little bit of everything!
Tell us about your latest release
Mudfight: Our upcoming EP Safe Zone and is the incarnation of 90s punk spiced with modern flavours! Short punk bangers mixed with feel good vibes and summer feelings!
The title track Safe Zone comes with a blazing bassline reminiscent of Longview by Green Day or Chick Magnet by MxPx!
Safe Zone will be out via our label SBÄM Records and on all streaming platforms on the 12th of June, 2020! You can pre-order your copy now!
Have you had a chance to tour?
Mudfight: We sadly haven’t been touring yet. But we are looking forward to better times in 2021 and some awesome shows!
Have you got any crazy stories you can share with the world?
Mudfight: We haven´t been on a real tour before, but we made a private release party for our latest single, during which many shady things happened. We don’t want to go into detail here, but there was some crazy shit going on!
Here at Upside Down Shark we discuss a wide breadth of pop-culture, including music, movies, TV, video games and the like. So, with that in mind, if you could have a track featured in anything, whether it be any of the above on even a wrestling theme, what would it be?
Mudfight: An NHL or NBA song would be awesome as fuck, but fitting our genre, we would love to have a track featured on the new version of Tony Hawk´s Pro Skater!
Name one thing on your band bucket list…
Mudfight: Playing a big show in the Gasometer in Vienna in front of 2000-4000 people!
What would be your inspirational quote to share with the world?
Mudfight: “Don’t be afraid of becoming who you are!“
What does the rest of 2020 have in store for you?
Mudfight: We had big things planned for this year, like playing an open-air show in our hometown to support our new release! However due to the pandemic, we have to postpone most of our planned shows to 2021.
But we are already working on replacements, so stay tuned to our social media!
What’s your favourite shark?
Mudfight: Sharks have always been my favourite animal. For my bandmates, I really can’t tell, so I’m going to choose my favourite, the Blacktip reef shark, as our favourite!
