Even though touring isn’t happening at the moment, there are plenty of chess pieces being put into place for the moment that live events can begin again. According to a new rumor, one of those chess pieces includes a long-awaited Mudvayne reunion.
The source of the rumor is Facebook page WOLVERINEKILLS. While this rumor should be taken with a grain of salt, the page did accurately report that Jay Weinberg was the drummer of Slipknot, and leaked dates for Slipknot’s big summer tour with Gojira and Behemoth. So, they have a history of getting it right.
The Facebook post from WOLVERINEKILLS simply reads “Hearing A LOT Of Mudvayne Reuniting For Some Touring RUMORS…”
In summer 2019, vocalist Chad Gray was asked about the possibility of a reunion by 101.1 WRIF’s Meltdown and at the time said that his current band, HELLYEAH, was the priority. “We’re all good. We all talk. We’re cool. Whatever. It just is what it is, man. This is where I have to be right now. This is so monumentally important to not only me personally, but to us as a band and I think to us as a metal community, a metal family, just to carry this on and fucking run it till the fucking wheels fall off. I’m in. I’ll do it for as long as I can do it. I love my guys; I love my band; I love our fans. They’re not even fans — they’re family. And it’s worldwide. And it’s a fucking beautiful thing.”
Bassist Ryan Martinie seemed more optimistic last July, telling MetalSucks “Man, there’s always talk [about us coming back]. Which is a good thing. I’m fortunate enough that the thing that we made together still garners some kind of interest from our fans and for those people who may have wanted to see us and never got to. There’s still kind of the, ‘Man, are they gonna do it?’
“I don’t have any answers for you on that front. Only that it’s fun when Mudvayne still is something that people enjoy… But as far as it being a future item… I don’t know. Only time can tell.”
This year, 2020 marked the 20th anniversary of L.D. 50. Obviously, there was no moment for a reunion, but could there be one in 2021?
