MATT BOROFF is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer, songwriter, live performer, sound designer, producer, narrator, illustrator, graphic designer, storyboard artist and video editor based in Feldkirch, Austria.
Throughout a storied career that’s found him sharing stages with such forward-pushing artists as BAD BRAINS, BRMC, CALEXICO, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and NIRVANA, American-born, Austria-based musician and songwriter, Matt Boroff, continues to take his passionate brand of music to new heights. For years he has excelled at luring audiences into new and exciting terrain, from experimental noise-rock to his years spent expanding the standard alternative-rock template with the Mirrors. Now he takes things a step further on his second full-length solo album, and his first since 2009, SWEET HAND OF FATE, which was self-released on September 13, 2013 in Europe and in the United States and Canada on January 14, 2014.
Sweet Hand of Fate features ten comp-elling tracks in which Boroff plunges the listener into fully realized worlds, creating an immersive work that feels cinematic in scope. A talented multi-instrumentalist, he plays, guitar, bass, piano, organ, drums and percussion and self-produced the record at Mosqito Studios in Austria. The album features a guest appearance by alt-rock legend MARK LANEGAN, who displays his harrowing vocals on the track,“GARBAGE MAN,” in addition to performances by LITTLE KONZETT (drums), and trombone by BERNHARD FORTI, THOMAS HALFER, and MATHIAS NICOLUSSI on various tracks.

The Revvolt Records mark appears in association with Musidora Vampires’ digital downloads, to be released physical formats, their official YouTube channel, and on their official MySpace and Facebook accounts.
The name Musidora derives from the stage name of French actress, JEANNE ROQUES who starred in several silent films during the early twentieth century and took on a vamp persona. Musidora Vampires draws influence from isolation within a shadow society and the effects of fear on a generation’s uncertain future.
