Crawling from the humid, mangrove choked banks of the Caloosahatche river, The Electric Mud drifted from late night jam sessions, back
yard keggers and a revolving cast of members until one night, in the taproom of a closed up brewery, Peter Kolter, Pierson Whicker,
Tommy Scott, and Constantine Grim found themselves in an old fashioned Morricone style standoff. Each had reputations around their
Florida town as serious musicians and hard workers, and after throwing lightning bolts around the room for a few hours it became clear
that they had found not just a band, but a sound.
Steeped in in their love for the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd and their shared Florida roots, came also a deep appreciation for
the proto metal of Black Sabbath and the prog metal of Mastodon, and the band aimed to slow cook it and serve it to the masses. After
countless hours of grueling rehearsals and gigging in the dives and biker bars of their hometown, The Electric Mud released its debut
album, Bull Gator, in 2018, and hit the road.
With the hard work came opportunity, with the band opening not just for Southern Rock legends such as Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, The
Devon Allman Band, Brother Hawk, and others and also winning a tri-state battle of the bands competition that drew the eye of Matt
Washburn, owner/operator of Ledbelly sound studios (Mastodon, Elder, Royal Thunder) in north Georgia. The band and Matt hit it off
immediately, and the band decamped to the peach state in 2019 to write and record its follow up album, falling in along the way with
the legendary Small Stone Records.
