Mudvayne and Epic Records are proud to announce the upcoming release, "By The People, For The People," which is set to hit stores November 27th. The highly anticipated new album consists of several live recordings, rarities, demos, as well as two new recordings including the first single, “Dull Boy,” which was produced by Dave Fortman and recorded in New Orleans, as well as an incredible never before heard cover of the Police’s “King of Pain.”

The album is aptly titled "By The People, For The People," because it is entirely fan-generated. Mudvayne is creating history by offering their diehard fans the opportunity to participate in creating the entire content of the album. Starting on September 26th, fans will be able to visit mudvayne.com and myspace.com/mudvayne to help pick the track listing, submit fan generated album artwork, and participate in creating the video for first single, “Dull Boy” which makes its radio debut in early October. “We have some of the greatest fans and this album is a way for us to give back to those that have supported us throughout the years,” states Chad Gray of Mudvayne.

"By The People, For The People" affords Mudvayne a chance to give back to their loyal fans that have stood by them throughout their entire career, one that exploded in 2000 with the release of the MTV2-award winning video, “Dig.” This album spotlights the disruption of traditional media and the band’s desire to further connect with their fans.

Every Mudvayne studio album has received gold certification including Mudvayne’s last release, 2005’s “Lost And Found,” which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and generated the hit single, “Happy?” which skyrocketed to take the #1 spot at radio and remained there for an incredible 10 weeks. Mudvayne has sold over 4.5 million units worldwide, resulting in an incredible 6 gold-certified releases. In addition, the band was also nominated for Best Metal Performance at the 2005 Grammy’s.

Singer Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett are on tour with HELLYEAH for the remainder of 2006. However, Mudvayne returns with a new studio album in 2008.

Mudvayne, the new Korn. Anyone remembr that horrible video that some kid came up with with Korn? It had literally nothing to do with the video and was based on a voyer kind of webcam idea because the kid that came up with it is probably some weird high school stalker future pedophile. But yeah, Mudvayne is heading down the same road now, I knew they should of quit after Lost and Found.

The entire album"End of All Things to Come" sounded like it wasn't recorded very well. Lost and Found was too structured like common jobber metal of today. LD 50 will always be their best album. It was original and raw. I hope they go back to their roots and record an album- not a bunch of metal songs.

Wha? If you ask me End of All Things to Come had amazing production... the bass lines really impress me and for once you can actually hear them.

I agree with Cynic. Although I do think LD50 was more unique, maybe their best album. I haven't listened to any of them in so long I'd have to refresh myself to give an honest opinion. Their bass player kicks a$$ though.
