Kickstarting their first headlining tour in over fourteen years, heavy metal band MUDVAYNE announced “The Psychotherapy Sessions”. Produced by Live Nation, the 26-city tour kicks off on July 20 in West Palm Beach at iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre, making stops across the U.S. in Syracuse, Albuquerque, Phoenix, and more before wrapping up in Englewood, Colorado at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre on August 26. MUDVAYNE will be joined by a number of supporting acts, including COAL CHAMBER, performing for the first time in eight years, along with GWAR, NONPOINT and BUTCHER BABIES.
Previously, MUDVAYNE made waves in 2022 when they embarked on the “Freaks On Parade” tour co-headlined with ROB ZOMBIE. This 2023 tour, however, marks MUDVAYNE‘s first headlining endeavor since 2009. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, March 24 at 10 a.m. local time on Ticketmaster.
“An Event. On the Horizon. Over 25 years in the making. Brave travelers…You, and the alien seed – MuDvAyNe. A journey begun. Reaching Zenith. Now for the Eschatology.” – Matt McDonough, Mudvayne drummer
GWAR lead singer Blóthar the Berserker is excited to get back out on the road: “I’ve been roller skating to get in shape for this. I’ve packed my thong bikini and water wing arm floaties. We are going to tear the US a new Grand Canyon this summer! What a bill this is! The real Monsters of Rock are hitting the road!”
“HERE WE GO AGAIN! Mudvayne was one of our first tours when we were just starting out so we have been friends for years. It’s going to be great to tour with our friends again. Not to mention the rest of the tour package. With this kind of lineup we expect the pits to be insane!” says the band’s front-man Elias Soriano.

MUDVAYNE formed in 1996 and has sold over six million records worldwide, earning gold certification for three albums (“L.D. 50”, “The End Of All Things To Come”, “Lost And Found”). The band is known for its sonic experimentation, innovative album art, face and body paint, masks and uniforms. MUDVAYNE is Chad Gray (vocals),Greg Tribbett (guitar, backing vocals),Matthew McDonough (drums, synthesizer) and Ryan Martinie (bass).
Gray has spent the past 17 years fronting HELLYEAH, which released its sixth studio album, “Welcome Home”, in September 2019 via Eleven Seven Music. The disc marked the group’s final effort with drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, who passed away more than four years ago.
MUDVAYNE did not tour behind its fifth album, which was barely promoted and sold weakly upon release.
