January 23, 2007

More than two hundred people participated in MUDVAYNE's "Shot in the Vayne" contest on online karaoke site SingShot. To hear the winning version of MUDVAYNE's "Happy?", go to

MUDVAYNE lead singer Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett are currently involved with HELLYEAH, the new band also featuring former PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul and NOTHINGFACE guitarist Tom Maxwell and bassist Jerry Montano. The group's self-titled debut album is scheduled for release on April 10 via Epic Records.

Gray and Tribbett will tour in support of the HELLYEAH debut in between recording the new MUDVAYNE album. The follow-up to 2004’s blockbuster release, "Lost And Found", which debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart, is due this fall and finds the Grammy-nominated quartet working once again with producer Dave Fortman (EVANESCENCE, SUPERJOINT RITUAL).

"Lost And Found" was MUDVAYNE's third consecutive gold-selling album and featured the blockbuster hit "Happy?" — a track that held the No. 1 spot at Active Rock Radio for ten consecutive weeks and was the overall No. 1 rock song for 2005 with over 50,000 plays. In addition, fans voted the song's companion clip the No. 1 "Headbanger's Ball" video of 2005. Of course, that was just part of the MUDVAYNE success story. The group also earned its first-ever Grammy nomination in the "Best Metal Performance" category for "Determined", the first song issued from "Lost And Found".

"It's cool to have both MUDVAYNE and HELLYEAH as creative outlets now, even though the approach, subject matter, and attitudes between the two projects are completely different," says Gray. "I'm looking forward to balancing both bands in my life — my new extremely busy life."
