MUDVAYNE's Collaborative Album Review Posted On PLUGD

Last month Plugd hosted a promotion for MUDVAYNE's new self-titled release that allowed fans to unite and let their voices be heard. The top eleven comments (one comment per song) were selected and featured in the first collaborative track-by-track album review. The review can be seen at this location.

Plugd is a promotional tool that allows artists to share their music in exchange for digital word of mouth (i.e., a Facebook status update and/or Tweet). The first track is available to stream with no stipulations, but in order to hear more, fans must let the band know what they think of the song by writing a comment or giving the track a rating from 1 to 5. Comments and ratings will serve as Facebook and/or Twitter posts for all of their friends to see.

MUDVAYNE's self-titled release is still streaming at this location.

"Mudvayne" sold around 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 50 on The Billboard 200 chart.

MUDVAYNE's previous LP, "The New Game", opened with 48,000 copies in November 2008 to land at No. 15. This was less than one third of the opening tally registered by its predecessor, "Lost and Found", which premiered with 152,000 units back in April 2005 to enter the chart at No. 2.

"Scream With Me", the new video from MUDVAYNE, can be viewed below. The clip was helmed by director Frankie Nasso (ALL THAT REMAINS, HATEBREED, EMMURE, BRIAN "HEAD" WELCH) and is one of three conceptually linked videos (along with "Beautiful And Strange" and "Heard It All Before") that were filmed to promote "Mudvayne". Reportedly the first album to ever use blacklight-reactive ink (making it only visible under a black light), the CD's cover image was created by world-renowned tattoo king Paul Booth.
