(New York, NY) - Gov't Mule has returned to the studio to record the follow-up to its 2004 ATO Records release Déjà Voodoo. Earlier this year, Gov't Mule worked with producer Gordie Johnson from Canadian band Big Sugar at Willie Nelson's famed Pedernales Studio, 40 minutes outside Austin. Following Warren Haynes' March commitments with the Allman Brothers Band, recording will reconvene Thursday, April 6th at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ.
"We're excited to get into the second half of the recording, and pick up where we left off in Austin," says Gov't Mule leader Warren Haynes.
Following the success of the online 'In The Studio' section at Mule.net, Gov't Mule will again offer fly-on-the-wall access to the recording session.
"The fan response to 'In The Studio' has been overwhelming, and we excited that our fans can experience the recording process," says Haynes.
ATO plans to release the new album on August 22, 2006. For fans who can't wait, please visit MuleTracks.com to download Gov't Mule concert recordings.

Formed in 1994, then-Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes and
bassist Allen Woody, with drummer Matt Abts, brought the power trio
structure back to rock - and Gov't Mule was born. The thunderous
threesome had released three studio and numerous live CDs by 2000, when
tragedy struck. Woody passed away on August 26, 2000. Tributes to Woody
followed; two volumes of The Deep End series, featuring many of the
world's greatest bass players, including: Flea, Bootsy Collins and Jason Newsted, and a live concert DVD, The Deepest End. A track off
The Deep End Vol 1., "Sco-Mule," was nominated for a Grammy in
February 2003. Haynes and Abts carried on, adding new members
keyboardist Danny Louis and bassist Andy Hess. In 2004, Gov't Mule
played their 1,000 show and released the first studio recording as a
quartet, Déjà Voodoo. 2005 brought the Mo' Voodoo EP, and the band's
first two tours to Europe.
