In advance of Western Magnetics' release, the album track "Bullshit Patrol" is available in a streaming format on the Exclaim! website here. Exclaim!'s Alex Hudson describes the track as "a beautiful shoegazing slow-burner that should get longtime fans even more excited for this one." 


Mystery Machine formed in 1990 in Chilliwack, BC. The young band quickly grew a strong following around the Vancouver area with their strong musicianship, ear-splitting volume, unconventional, progressive song structures and often volatile and confrontational live shows.

The band released three albums in the 1990s: Glazed (1992), Ten Speed (1995), and Headfirst Into Everything(1998).

After an informal hiatus of a few years, Mystery Machine has recently signed to Sonic Unyon Records and a new album, Western Magnetics, is scheduled for release in September 2012.
