After a 11-year hiatus MUDVAYNE have officially announced a reunion. Chad Gray, Greg Tribbett, Ryan Martinie & Matthew McDonough have been focusing on other projects such as HELLYEAH, AUDIOTOPSY, SOFTEN THE GLARE amongst others. Fans have been asking for a long-needed reunion ever since.
Fans dreams will finally come to reality as the band has announced performances at several at Danny Wimmer Presents' rock and metal festivals: Inkarceration Music & Tattoo Festival (Sept. 10th-12th in Mansfield, OH), Louder Than Life (Sept. 23rd-26 in Louville, KY), Aftershock (October 7th-10th in Sacramento, CA) and Welcome to Rockville (November 11th-14 in Daytona Beach, FL).
Wimmer commented, "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."
