Mudvayne Will Finally Return to Australia With Coal Chamber

Mudvayne Chad Gray INterview 2023

We’ve all been waiting for this headline for a hot minute, haven’t we? After nearly two decades, goth/post-grunge/nu-metal lunatics Mudvayne are finally coming back to Australia. It was around the time of their 2006 Big Day Out that they went on hiatus as frontman Chad Gray took on double duties with the almighty Hellyeah, with Pantera visionary, the late-Vinnie Paul – alongside other talented musicians.

In the few years following the legendary drummer’s passing, in 2018,  Gray reconnected with the Mudvayne crew to announce their first shows in 12 years. Kicking off renowned festival appearances like Inkcarceration Music & Tattoo and Welcome to Rockville, the world came to realise the industrial legends were back in a big way; and the tours just grew from there. 

Ever since the four-piece’s return to the stage to play cult-bangers off timeless records like L.D. 50, the question remains – when will they release new music. However, today is not the day for that.

I digress. Mudvayne will be hitting Aussie shores in February, 2024 and will be joined by Coal Chamber, with Dez Fafara also sporting a career of double-duties when he’s away from ultimate groove-metalers DevilDriver. This is truly the ultimate nu-metal/industrial genre-combo. With this tour being presented by The Phoenix and Teamwrk Touring, it’d be remiss to not bask in the nostalgia of various DevilDriver, Coal Chamber and Hellyeah performances over the years in our country across Soundwave festivals and tours.

From their self-titled record in all the way back in 1997 all the way to their most recent record Rivals from 2015, Coal Chamber are going to bring the ruckus of their back-catalogue to Aussie fans.
