Puddle Of Mudd are set to release re: (disc)overed through Goomba Music on the 3rd October 2011. The band have also announced a full UK tour thoughout October 2011.
After four albums, six million record sales, sold-out crowds and more than a dozen radio hits, Puddle of Mudd has cemented its reputation and its repertoire in the rock 'n' roll world. It's the proverbial force to be reckoned with, possessing the kind of track record -- think "Blurry," "Drift & Die," "She Hates Me," "Away From Me", "Psycho" and “Control” for starters - most bands would be proud to have over an entire career.
re: (disc)overed is an entirely different kind of endeavor for the group, which has been churning out its own material since Wesley Scantlin formed the band nearly 20 years ago in Kansas City, Mo. This time the Mudd men have put down their pens in favour of recording 11 of their favorite rock songs of all time -- classics by the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, the Steve Miller Band, AC/DC, Elton John and many others. Some are perfectly in character; others are surprising. But ultimately re: (disc)overed is Puddle of Mudd getting to both show and explore some different sides of its musical makeup. The UK release will also feature two extra bonus tracks…
"When we were on the road last time we had been playing (AC/DC's) 'TNT' and (Miller's) 'The Joker' and 'War Pigs' by Black Sabbath and 'Summer Lovin' ' from the GREASE soundtrack -- just kind of bouncing around, doing covers," Scantlin says. "We never put any cover songs on our records before, so it just seemed like something fun to do. Plus they're all hit songs, all timeless songs. Who wouldn't want to make a record like that?"
