MUDVAYNE reunion!

They’re baaaaaaaaaaaack!

 

Groove/alt-metal fan types can thrill today as the long rumored and hoped for MUDVAYNE reunion becomes tangible fact!

Ryan was one of my favorite interviews years ago for Crusher Magazine and I saw the dudes destroy Ozzfest in Connecticut one year as a giant mud fight raged, one of the most memorable and intense live performances I ever saw at a large festival. Their odd aesthetic, intense musicianship and energy has been missed!

 

A cryptic message about evolving through shrooms (or something) was paired with some glitchy footage on the band’s Facebook.

And did I mention…show dates?!!

The brooding nu metal titans have announced that they’re indeed reuniting after a 12-year hiatus AND will be performing at all four Danny Wimmer Presents U.S. festivals in 2021

These symptoms suggested that our evolution, I suppose, from the animal kingdom into human kingdom itself was catalyzed or triggered by our encounter with these hallucinogenics, and… Yes, we are an ape with a symbiotic relationship to a mushroom, and that has given us self reflection, language, religion, and all the spectrum of effects that flow from these things And one can only wonder how these hallucinogens might effect our future evolution as well They have brought us to this point and as we make our relationship to them conscious, we may be able to take control of our future evolutionary path

Mudvayne formed in 1996 and has sold over six million records worldwide, earning Gold certification for three albums (L.D. 50, The End Of All Things To Come, Lost and Found). The band is known for their sonic experimentation, innovative album art, face and body paint, masks and uniforms. Mudvayne is Chad Gray (vocals), Greg Tribbett (guitar, backing vocals), Matthew McDonough (drums, synthesizer) and Ryan Martinie (bass).

Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents recalls, “In our fan surveys, Mudvayne has consistently been one of the most requested bands – even though they weren’t an active band! We’ve been working for years to make this happen, so when I got the call that they’d finally take a meeting, [DWP Executive VP & Talent Buyer] Gary Spivack and I jumped at the chance to fly to Vegas. We sat down for dinner with Mudvayne, their lawyer Eric German, manager Diony Sepulveda and agent Ryan Harlacher – the band hadn’t even been in the same room together for 10 years – and pleaded our case for why the time was right for this to happen. We were hoping to announce this in 2020, we’re fortunate enough to be able to do it in 2021, and DWP is super pumped to have Mudvayne exclusively at all four of our festivals this year.”
