Chad Gray Says New Mudvayne Demos Sound “Special”


The long-awaited new music from Mudvayne continues to gestate, with the gold-certified nü-metal faction having amassed a small collection of demos thus far. This past summer saw the band’s vocalist Chad Gray reveal that four new songs had come together ahead of their ‘The Psychotherapy Sessions‘ tour, which wrapped up in August.

Speaking recently with Heavy, Gray provided some further details on their progress since:

“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.”

He continued:

“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 [at the end of 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 in February 2024] and see you. We’ll see.”
