Mudvayne Unmask on “Lost”

Hard rockers lose the makeup on raw third album

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.”
