Puddle Of Mudd Ready To Smack Next LP

Puddle of Mudd are planning the follow-up to Come Clean, only they won’t do that with the details.

While the producer and song ideas are “top secret,” singer Wes Scantlin revealed the schedule for recording the album, which should be released early next year.

“After the European tour, we’ll be back in September and doing a lot of just jammin’,” Scantlin said backstage at KROQ Weenie Roast. “We have a lot of new songs and they are ready to go, and we can’t wait to get back in the studio [in October].”

Puddle of Mudd, whose Come Clean has scored with introspective rock anthems such as “Blurry” and “Drift & Die,” are leaving the door open for guest artists such as Fred Durst, who discovered Scantlin, or other bands Puddle’s toured with since their major-label debut was released last fall.

Scantlin and cohorts have added Korn and Deadsy to that list – their tour kicked off last Thursday.

“It’s very diverse tour,” Scantlin said. “There’s a lot of diversity, and I think it’s a good thing. It gives everybody a breath of fresh air when the next band comes on. I think it’s gonna be cool.”

In honor of the tour, Puddle of Mudd’s biggest to date, the band has reworked their breakthrough hit. “We’re doing a little interlude in ‘Control,’ ” Scantlin said. “In the middle part we’re going into ‘War Pigs’ by Black Sabbath and then going back to the song.”

No worries, the “I love the way you smack my ass” line won’t change.
