Puddle Of Mudd has announced the first handful of dates on its upcoming headlining tour in support of its new covers album, re:(disc)covered. According to Rock Access, the trek will kick off on July 23rd in Hartford, Connecticut, with four more East Coast dates confirmed so far. Rev Theory will be the support act for the road trip. Re:(disc)covered, which features 11 covers of songs from artists like AC/DC, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Bad Company, the Steve Miller Band and more, will arrive in stores on August 2nd.
Frontman Wes Scantlin told us that the band has come up with an unusual format for the live show this time out: "We are gonna do a whole entire tour where we do like an hour-long set of the entire album of the covers, then we take like a five or 10-minute intermission, and then we come back out and we do every single Puddle Of Mudd hit song ever. So the whole entire show will just be hit, hit, hit, hit, hit, hit, hit, and then a little break, everybody can get a drink, go take a pee, whatever they've got to do, and then we come back and we just kick it back into the Puddle Of Mudd."
Re:(disc)overed follows up Puddle Of Mudd's 2009 effort, Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate.
The first single, a cover of the Stones' "Gimme Shelter," will arrive at radio stations in mid-June.
