Mudvayne Hope For Summer Release For New Album

According to The Pulse of Radio, MUDVAYNE's touring and album plans for 2008 have yet to be nailed down. The band was initially rumored as one of the big acts on this summer's Rockstar Mayhem tour, which is already confirmed to include DISTURBED and SLIPKNOT on the bill. MUDVAYNE drummer Matt McDonough told The Pulse of Radio that he heard the same rumors but can't say precisely what MUDVAYNE plans to do. "We almost assuredly will be touring this summer, and we're investigating options of what's gonna happen," he said. "You know, as far as the Mayhem tour, you know, that would be a great situation for us. We're great friends with SLIPKNOT and I believe DISTURBED is on it. God, I'd love to tour with all my bros, my friends, but I think it's just another possibility."

As for the new MUDVAYNE album, McDonough is hoping for a summer release. The band completed most of the recording last summer in New Orleans, but is working on additional material.

MUDVAYNE's plans could also be complicated by the touring schedule of HELLYEAH, the group launched last year that features MUDVAYNE singer Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett.

HELLYEAH kicked off a new North American tour on Friday (January 25) and plays Tuesday night (January 29) in Charleston, South Carolina.

MUDVAYNE issued a collection of fan-selected rarities late last year titled "By The People, For The People". It sold 22,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at Number 51 on the Billboard album chart.

not really excited for the new album. Hellyeah was not good. BTPFTP was garbage....all of it. Nothing will even come close to LD 50. It will equivilate Metallica's ReLoad. ( Just an extension of Lost and Found). 3 good songs at the most and the rest will be filler.

I don't understand what you people are talking about. I have not heard a bad Mudvayne song since I first heard DiG. L.D. 50 was their best album, I agree. You can't argue with songs like Internal Primates Forever, and Nothing to Gein, and Death Blooms. Classics. But songs like Silenced, Skrying, Trapped in the Wake of a Dream, Happy, Not Falling, Forget to Remember, Choices, Just, IMN, f***ing Determined, you can't argue with those either. Everything Mudvayne has done is classic. If you haven't liked anything sonce L.D. 50, why are you still on their site??? I don't get it, if you're not a fan, go home. Hellyeah is awesome, just simple redneck metal. I can't wait for the new album. And If anyone knows where to find a copy of Kill 'em All, let me know. I want the original.

I'm a fan but the last legitimate album doesn't measure up to the major label debut and its follow up. I've got enough spare change for one more Mudvayne album if they can meet or beat Lost and Found, otherwise I'm moving on.

Now Playing: Opeth - "Beneath the Mire"

I understand that Mudvayne's last 2 albums have not been up to L.D. 50 standards. But the one thing that most "fans" don't get, is that bands cannot duplicate albums simply because some fans want them to. They grow, they experiment, the challenge themselves. The biggest thing that bands shoud be worried about is that their music is what THEY want! Fans are just guppies to buy what they want to hear.

For me, this band hasn't done anything worthwhile since The End of All Things To Come. Or was it The Beginning of All Things To End? Never can remember. But I loved that album, and L.D. 50, too. Lost and Found was boring for me, and this By The People crap? Not even going to give that a chance. They are actually not an untalented band, I just wish they'd lift their game a little, especially since they have the capacity to do so.

Now Playing: Dry Kill Logic - "200 Years"

Happen to like High on Fire as quite a bit. Mudvayne still happen to catch my ear from time to time though.

I don't want Mudvayne to replicate LD 50 or The End of All Things to Come. But the songs on Lost and Found for the most part were a little too straight forward. I'm not asking for Dillinger/Converge/The Locust style time changes or Opeth length dirges....But I'd like Mudvayne to at least incorporate some of the idiosyncratic song structures, drumming and bass noodling that got them the fans that eventually propelled them to wider recognition....It's why people bought their albums in the first place.

Now Playing: Riverside - "I Turned You Down"
