The band comment: “This is a tune Hagen wrote in his head back in 2017, whilst he was working at a gardening centre in Hamm, North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany. As he was mindfully watering plants that would later be sold to a kind, elderly couple, the song formed naturally.

A couple of hours later, ‘F*CK YOURSELF’ was finished. He just had to play it on guitar now. The three significant stabs needed to be filled with the title lyrics. It was a perfect remedy.

Carrying the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll, MUDSHARK combines grooving guitar riffs with soaring, soulful vocal melodies. Singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, Hagen Brüggemann and A. STR▲NGR have been making and producing music since they were kids. 

STR▲NGR started professional vocal training at the age of seven, playing guitar from age nine and raised funds for the Tsunami crisis as London’s youngest busker that same year. STR▲NGR started playing in bands at age 10. As a professional performer, he made multiple West End theatre appearances from the age of 12.

Hagen started professional guitar training at the age of four, playing in many different projects from age seven. Four years later he also started professional drum, vocal and piano training. Hagen is a certified audio engineer, educated by Music Academy Germany and producing music since the age of 13.

From the ages of 11 to 13 he made multiple national television appearances playing guitar and presenting for children’s TV shows – up to 12 million viewers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Hagen is also the youngest artist to have ever played Wacken Open Air, the biggest metal festival in the world. It was during this time Hagen started writing songs for what would become MUDSHARK.

The name arose during their experience of Download Festival 2019, nicknamed “Drownload” or infamously “Brownload”. Mud up to your ankles, mud in your tent, the only thing that could have made it worse was if a shark swam up from the deep and pulled you below the surface.

The name further stands as a metaphor for MUDSHARK‘s musical mission: cutting through the noise of the music industry. MUDSHARK‘s mission is to deliver fresh and catchy heavy music to a current mainstream audience and younger generation, hitting the sweet spot between rock and metal.

MUDSHARK started as a remote project at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, using the global lockdown to write two EPs and one full-length album. Currently there are three MUDSHARKs ruling the oceans: A. STR▲NGR (vocals), Hagen Brüggemann (guitar) and Sebastian Richards (bass). 

MUDSHARK are collaborating with various drummers, including Jack Wrench (Arcane RootsJamie LenmanSalem) for studio drums and Jerry Sadowski (ATAN and many more) for live drums.

MUDSHARK have recently finished their debut EP ZLV, working with Neil Kennedy (CreeperBoston Manor) as recording and mixing engineer and Gene ‘Machine’ Freeman (Lamb of GodClutchEvery Time I Die) as mastering engineer.
