PUDDLE OF MUDD To Release 'Really Badass' New Album In 2019
December 18, 2018
PUDDLE OF MUDD frontman Wes Scantlin says that fans can expect to hear fresh music from the band next year. "We're coming out with a new record and it's really badass," he told the Rock 100.5 The KATT radio station in a new interview (see video below). "We worked our butt off on it, and I can't wait to get it out. Coming soon."
Asked if he could provide any insight into the sound of the new PUDDLE OF MUDD record, Wes said: "It's just a bunch of great songs, man — heartfelt and true to PUDDLE OF MUDD form."
PUDDLE OF MUDD's last album, "Volume 4: Songs In The Key Of Love & Hate", came out in 2009. A covers disc, "re(disc)overed", followed in 2011. A standalone new song, "Piece Of The Action", was released in 2014 via iTunes.
PUDDLE OF MUDD broke into the mainstream with 2001's "Come Clean", which yielded three hits — "Control", "Blurry" and "She Hates Me".
Earlier this year, Scantlin said that he finally got his life together after years of legal troubles, canceled or disrupted shows and arrests for disorderly or drunken behavior.
Scantlin said that he ended up going back to rehab and receiving treatment "because there's really nowhere else to go." He also credited his family and fans for giving him the strength to try to get better.
