MUDVAYNE's fourth studio album, "The New Game", has sold 109,000 copies in the United States alone, since its November 18th release. The album sold 48,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release and landed at position No. 15 on The Billboard charts!
Mudvayne's new album, "The New Game" follows an extended period in which MUDVAYNE recorded two full length albums of new material. Singer Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett also went off to record and tour with the killer rock band known as, HELLYEAH!
Chad Grey also went live on air and told The Pulse of Radio that, "all the hard work paid off in creating Mudvaynes most mature album yet." He went on to say, "I really think that music kind of comes from where you're at in life and I think that every record we come out with, we learn a little more about each other. It's not easier to write songs for us, but it's a lot easier to write songs for us; we understand each other better. Some things usto take us forever to figure out, we're a little quicker now and able to kind of realize the direction that we're going in." The band has grown a lot since forming together in 2001 and they've been through so much over the years and have grown as a band as well as individuals.
