MUDVAYNE To Finish Tracking New Album This Week

Gary Graff of Billboard.com reports that MUDVAYNE plans to wrap up the recording of its fourth album this week for a late 2007 release.

"I've got three songs left to track, but it's just vocal tracking," frontman Chad Gray tells Billboard.com. "It's just vocal tracking. All the guitars are done. All the drums are done. All the bass is done. We're just doing housekeeping right now. We're just listening, checking things out, reviewing stuff, making sure the performance is the right one — the little odds and ends you do before you pack up everything and go home."

The quartet recorded the as-yet-untitled CD in New Orleans with Dave Fortman (EVANESCENCE, SUPERJOINT RITUAL), who produced 2005's "Lost and Found".

Regarding the new album's musical direction, Gray says, "It's not light years away from what we've done in the past, but it's not the same. This has got some really interesting music on it, stuff you don't expect. It just kinda moves forward; it's not linear from what we've done before. But I think it's gonna be a great record."
