Mudvayne has tapped Dave Fortman (Superjoint Ritual, Evanescence) to produce their third album for Epic Records, slated for release this fall. Singer Chad Gray, guitarist Greg Tribbett, bassist Ryan Martinie and drummer Matt McDonough chose Fortman because they felt he could combine the band's more extreme elements.

But before heading to The Plant in Sausalito, Calif. Fortman will spend time with Mudvayne in pre-production. “I've found that those first few days are the most important when it comes to setting the album's tone, challenging the band about their goals and fine-tuning the arrangements for maximum emotional impact,” he says.

“We've been extremely fortunate to work with some amazing producers,” says Gray. “Garth Richardson captured the band's raw energy on the first record and David Bottrill gave our music a three-dimensional quality on the second record. For this record, we asked Dave Fortman to produce because we wanted someone who can bring both of those elements together into a sound that's brutal and beautiful.”

The upcoming album follows L.D. 50 and The End of All Things to Come — both of which were certified gold.
