CLASSIC ROCK COVERS ALBUM RE:(DISC)OVERED OUT AUGUST 2;
LIMITED RUN OF U.S. DATES SCHEDULED FOR JULY
For their upcoming fifth studio album, Puddle of Mudd decided to dig back into their own past for the songs that turned them on to becoming musicians in the first place. The result is: re:(disc)overed – an album which finds Puddle Of Mudd tackling these classic rock songs as only they know how.

The new album includes such classics as AC/DC's "TNT," Steve Miller's "The Joker," Elton John's "Rocket Man," the Stevie Nicks/Tom Petty duet "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" (which Puddle Of Mudd recorded with BC Jean), Neil Young's "Old Man," and the first single, The Rolling Stones classic "Gimmie Shelter."
Another standout track on the album is Puddle's take on Billy Squier's "Everybody Wants You." Billy Squier himself has already heard the track and remarked, "Sounds like these guys have got the right idea."
"Our goal in interpreting these songs was to pay more tribute rather than reinvent," guitarist Paul Phillips said. "These are all classics that are perfect in every sense, so who are we to mess with that? We just wanted to represent them in their true form and add a little of our sound to them. We cut everything with very few takes and tried to keep it very live like those old seventies records. We didn't want to Pro Tool the hell out of it."
Beginning July 23, Puddle Of Mudd have scheduled five shows where for the first half of the show they will perform songs from re:(disc)overed followed by a run of Puddle Of Mudd hits.
