The late great Suicide co-founder ALAN VEGA may have passed away, but his music will forever live on to inspire and inform the generations that welcome it. Among the many efforts VEGA was involved in, he recorded his Mutator full-length from 1995-1996, a project that never saw the light, until 2o21 that is. His wife and recording partner Liz Lamere, along with VEGA's close friend/producer Jared Artaud and Sacred Bones Records, are bringing Mutator to life in a new light come April 23rd. To ease listeners into the release, Filthy arrives today with haunting, synth laden sonics to boast.


Jared Artaud comments on the track:


“‘Filthy’ was the first song Liz and I started to mix on Mutator. It set into motion how to work on and produce the rest of the album. Sonically speaking, Alan never lost his edge with age. He kept his intensity and incessant drive for endless experimentation. Alan's process was more like a visual artist working in sound rather than a traditional musician going into the studio to make records. At the heart of it all, Alan was a poet. His lyrics always hit hard and he was always pushing forward, trailblazing onto the next idea of his vision.”


Liz Lamere adds:


“Filthy's anthemic zombie atmosphere challenges the listener to find the underlying message of hope that is always within Vega's words and sound.”
