Amb Pirate of Capital Chaos TV conducted an interview with Steve "Skinny" Felton of MUSHROOMHEAD at the Mountain View, California stop of the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. You can now watch the chat below.
MUSHROOMHEAD's eighth studio album, "The Righteous & The Butterfly", sold around 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 20 on The Billboard 200 chart.
The band's previous CD, 2010's "Beautiful Stories For Ugly Children", opened with over 11,000 units to land at No. 44.
MUSHROOMHEAD's 2006 effort, "Savior Sorrow", registered a first-week tally of 17,000 copies to enter the chart at No. 50.
"The Righteous & The Butterfly" was released on May 13 via Megaforce Records. Recorded in Cleveland with longtime co-producer Bill Korecky, the CD consists of 14 tracks, ranging from songs about survival and balance ("Devils Be Damned", "Qwerty", "Son Of 7") to emotionally charged anthems ("For Your Pleasure", "Worlds Collide") to a riff-heavy rendition of Adele's No. 1 hit "Rumor Has It".
MUSHROOMHEAD is comprised of drummers Skinny, Robert Diablo and Stitch; vocalists J Mann, Jeffery Nothing and Waylon; guitarist Church; keyboardist Schmotz; and bassist Dr. F.
The album's title, "The Righteous & The Butterfly", is a dedication to original guitarist J.J. Righteous and the band's former photographer (and drummer Steve "Skinny" Felton's wife) Vanessa Solowiow, who both passed away too soon.
