Stepping back into the spotlight after a long period of dormancy isn’t an easy experience for a band. However challenging it might be, absence makes the heart grow fonder and the work even more rewarding.

Mudvayne frontman Chad Gray understands this all too well. After last year’s highly successful “Freaks On Parade Tour” with co-headliner Rob Zombie, the band are currently out on their first proper headline run in 14 years. Dubbed “The Psychotherapy Sessions,” these concerts are major events unto themselves and feature support from Coal Chamber (on their first tour in 8 years) along with shock-rock icons GWAR, Nonpoint and Butcher Babies.

In a recent conversation with the Talkin’ Rock with Meltdown podcast, Gray addressed the personal significance of the Psychotherapy Sessions andhow the Rob Zombie dates last year were a way to feel out what the future might hold for Mudvayne. The frontman also discussed their current setlist and explained why they won’t be breaking out their cover of The Police’s hit “King Of Pain” any time in the near future, commenting: “It just did not sound good….it sounds wonky.”
