Mudvayne Announces Official Reunion Dates


It’s finally happening! Mudvayne has announced that they’ll be performing this year after a 12-year hiatus. The band, anchored by bass monster Ryan Martinie, will be performing at four “Danny Wimmer Presents” festivals across the U.S., including Inkcarceration Music & Tattoo Festival in Ohio, Louder Than Life in Kentucky, Aftershock in California and Welcome To Rockville in Florida. These shows mark the band’s first performances since 2009.

A press release by Danny Wimmer also says it will be the band’s only shows for the year.

“In our fan surveys, Mudvayne has consistently been one of the most requested bands – even though they weren’t an active band! We’ve been working for years to make this happen, so when I got the call that they’d finally take a meeting, [DWP Executive VP & Talent Buyer] Gary Spivack and I jumped at the chance to fly to Vegas,” Wimmer writes. “We sat down for dinner with Mudvayne, their lawyer Eric German, manager Diony Sepulveda and agent Ryan Harlacher – the band hadn’t even been in the same room together for 10 years – and pleaded our case for why the time was right for this to happen. We were hoping to announce this in 2020, we’re fortunate enough to be able to do it in 2021, and DWP is super pumped to have Mudvayne exclusively at all four of our festivals this year.”

Mudvayne’s distinct metal sound is thanks in part to Martinie, whose aggressive attack and singular bass lines brought melodic hooks to songs like “Dig” and “Death Blooms”. The concerts will be taking place from September to November. Until then, we’ll be jamming out the hits while we wait.
