There’s been talk about maybe, possibly, new Mudvayne music happening if the band can keep working together. Well, according to a recent interview with Heavy, frontman Chad Gray said things may already be getting in the way of making new music.
Despite being able to play some festivals and touring for a bit since 2021, Gray had gone on record in the past that the band could be down to write new music. And while he and the other members are down, it seems they might be trying a bit too hard at making the perfect come back album. Oh and being older dudes living in different parts of the country doesn’t help either, it turns out.
“We’ve started putting some new stuff together a little bit and people that have heard [some of the early demo] stuff are really excited about it. Only the people that are closest to us have heard anything, and, like I said, it’s really rough; it’s demos. But you can tell it’s special. And I think that we have to make sure it’s Mudvayne. We have to make sure that it’s what we want. So we’ll just have to see. We were working on it, working on it, working on it a little bit here and there.
“We all live states away from each other — nobody lives even close to each other — so it makes it a little bit difficult. But we were able to get some stuff demoed up or whatever, but with us being so far apart, it’s a little slow going. And then we just kind of hit a wall. We were, like, ‘Okay, we’ve gotta get back into touring.’ So we put everything together and we went back out this summer.
“We’ll see what this fall brings. We all just got home [in August], so we’re still kind of decompressing. I’m feeling pretty good now. We just put everything on hold and we just wanted to focus on touring. But now that we’re done with it, as everybody starts raising their head out of the sand, hopefully we can get together and do something. I don’t know — maybe we’ll have something new by the time we come down there [to Australia] and see you. We’ll see.”
So who knows what’s going to happen in the future? As long as gravity doesn’t take its toll on Gray and people can learn to get together to work on the record, we may get some new tunes. Only time will tell.
