MUDVAYNE Singer Taken Ill; Band Cancel Virginia Concert

MUDVAYNE were forced to cancel tonight's show at Jaxx in Springfield, Virginia after singer Chad Gray was taken ill. "We are really sorry for this inconvenience, but we assure you we will make this up," the band write on their web site. It is not presently clear if any other dates on the group's current club tour will be affected by the cancellation.

MUDVAYNE's new album, "Lost and Found", is scheduled for release on April 12 via No Name/Epic Records. A video for the album's first single, "Happy?", was shot earlier this week in the Los Angeles area with director Lex Halaby (CHIMAIRA, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE). The treatment for the clip is said to be a "special effects tribute to the power of nature."

The follow-up to 2002's gold-certified "The End of All Things to Come", "Lost and Found" was recorded at The Plant studio in Sausalito, California with producer Dave Fortman (former UGLY KID JOE guitarist), who has previously worked with SUPERJOINT RITUAL and EVANESCENCE, among others. Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include Fucking Determined", "Just" and "Pushing Through".

MUDVAYNE will be teaming up with LIFE OF AGONY, BLOODSIMPLE and AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE for a U.S. tour beginning in late March. The first announced dates are as follows:

Mar. 29 - St. Paul, MN @ Roy Wilkins Auditorium
Mar. 30 - Milwaukee, WI @ The Rave
