One of two things is happening in the Mudvayne camp. Either they’ve moved to North Jersey, which has a 201 area code, or they’re planning on doing something, like reunite, sometime soon. Yesterday on the band’s Facebook page, they simply posted “201?” That’d suggest that they’re going to be doing something sooner or later. or as Metal Sucks notes, sometime between now and 2019.
Mudvayne started off particularly strong, with the release of of L.D.50, and the band, who at the time wore makeup and wrote particularly heavy nu-metal, mined gold. The band’s next album, 2002’s The End of All Things to Come, was also successful, but found the band dipping into a more conventional sound. The band’s last few albums, Lost and Found, The New Game and a self-titled album found them becoming more of a radio rock band, before going on an indefinite hiatus in 2010. Since then, singer Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett went on to form Hellyeah with Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell and Pantera’s Vinnie Paul, and Tribbett has since formed Audiotopsy. A reunion would at least temporarily put a pause on those two bands.
