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.
