Mudvayne Unmask on "Lost"

Hard rockers lose the makeup on raw third album

October 27, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Mudvayne have dropped their makeup and costumes for their third album, tentatively titled Lost and Found, due early next year. The Illinois hard rockers' first since 2002's The End of All Things to Come, the record represents a return to the band's roots.

"People are gonna be surprised by the rawness," says guitarist Greg Tribbett. "Instead of being all slick, we're definitely going for a raw sound on this record. The last one was pretty smooth and the first record, L.D. 50, was raw, so we're kind of mixing it up a little bit."

Dave Fortman, who has worked with Evanescence and Superjoint Ritual, is producing the record. Among the twelve tracks are "Just," "Happy," "Pushing Through" and the single "Fucking Determined," for which the band shot a video in New York two weeks ago. "That's one song I'm looking forward to playing live, because I'm sure we'll get a lot of crowd participation," Tribbett says of the alternately melodic and ferocious rocker.

Lost and Found was originally due for a November release and Mudvayne planned to preview it with an October tour, but now the band will use the extra time to fine-tune the album. However, the band is anxious to unleash the new material. "I'm really psyched," Tribbett says. "I think everybody's gonna want to play everything off the new record."

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
