The first single off MUDVAYNE's as-yet-untitled sophomore offering, "Not Falling", is scheduled to go to radio in early October, according to an Epic Records spokesperson.MUDVAYNE's forthcoming album was recently completed at Minnesota's Pachyderm Studios with producer David Bottrill (i.e. TOOL, SILVERCHAIR, PETER GABRIEL) for a November 19th release through Epic Records. "We had all the time in the world to write our first album, but for the second one, we had about a month," MUDVAYNE drummer Matt "Spag" McDonough told Revolver magazine about songwriting process for the new CD. Although the tight deadline caused a lot of anxiety, "it also caused us to focus. I'm amazed how quickly we came up with the material." Describing the new songs as "even weirder" than those on MUDVAYNE's gold-selling L.D. 50, McDonough stated that the upcoming effort will contain more variety than has been the case in the past. "[The new album] explores a greater range of sounds, dynamics and emotional content," he said. "Melody's not so strange for other bands, but it's different for us. It's been a challenge. "On the first record, we wrote as individuals and explored our own heads. This time, we wanted more of a 'rock band' vibe, though you probably shouldn't take that too literally. It's just that we've spent so much time playing together that it's natural to want to carry that relationship into the writing and recording process. The album is more mature as a result."
