Puddle of Mudd is an American post?grunge band from Kansas City, Missouri. The band has soldover 7 million albums and has string of number one mainstream rock singles in the U.S. Theirmajor label debut ‘Come Clean’has sold over five million copies.Ask Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin about the writing andrecording of the album‘Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate’, and he responds with the same spirit of carefreewanderlust that defines his band: “It’s all easy peezy, dude. No big deal at all....”Not to him, maybe. Wes Scantlinis custom?made for the new millennium ? a rockstar withoutthe pretense and a frontman whose spontaneity propels his offstage personality as much as itdoes his onstage delivery. “Wes is constantly adjusting to thevibe in the room, throwing hisflavor in there and constantly trying to make people laugh,” explains bassist Doug Ardito. “Hedoesn’t do the David Lee Roth thing, where he delivers the samelines every night. He’scompletely off?the?cuff.”On ‘Volume 4’, Scantlin does deliver the same savvy lyrics thatfans have come to expect sincethe band’s multi?platinum debut, ‘Come Clean’, weaving subtle innuendo and not?so?subtlelyrical wordplay around vocal hooks so thick, they even seem tomake life’s more sour realitieseasier to swallow. Case in point, ‘Psycho’, the smash single from the band’s 2007 release‘Famous’ that rationalizes a relationship with, “maybe I’m theone who is a schizophrenicpsycho.”‘Famous’, like both albums before it, was certified gold afterselling more than 500,000 copiesin America alone. Propelled by ‘Psycho’, the album cemented Puddle of Mudd’s status as bona?fide hit makers, and earned themindustry accolades, includingBillboard’s No. 1 MainstreamRock Song of 2008 and No. 2 RockBand of the Year, where they finished second only to the FooFighters. Keeping in that tradition, the new album goes down like the smoothest shot you’llever take. No chaser required – unless, like Scantlin and guitarist Paul Phillips, you opt for acold, frosty one.Puddle of MuddPage2of2Artists Worldwide‘Volume 4’ is a homecoming forPhillips, who left the band shortly into the recording processfor ‘Famous’. Despite the success of ‘Psycho’, something was missing, and when Phillips andScantlin reconnected earlier this year, all of the prior tension had melted away and theirchemistry was rediscovered.Early Years (1992?2000)Puddle of Mudd was formed September 13, 1991 by Wes Scantlin (vocals/guitar). According toWes, the band name was inspiredby practicing next to the Missouri River levy, which alwaysinundated the band’s practice space but never ruined their equipment because they were onthe second floor. Their first album, ‘Stuck’, was released in 1994 on V&R Records. It spawnedtwo radio singles.2001?NowIn September 2014, the band released the non?album single ‘Piece of the Action’.
