Puddle Of Mudd have released their version of The Rolling Stones classic ‘Gimme Shelter’, which serves as the first single from Kansas City, Missouri rock band’s forthcoming album, ‘Re:(disc)overed’. Check out a stream of the track via SoundCloud below and purchase it at iTunes. ‘Re:(disc)overed’ lands on August 30th but is available for pre-order on Amazon now.
For this release, Puddle Of Mudd dig back into their own past for the songs that turned them on to becoming musicians in the first place. ‘Re:(disc)overed’ includes such classics as AC/DC’s ‘TNT’, Steve Miller’s ‘The Joker’, Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’, the Stevie Nicks/Tom Petty duet ‘Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around’ (which Puddle Of Mudd recorded with BC Jean), Neil Young’s ‘Old Man’, and the first single, ‘Gimmie Shelter’.
“Our goal in interpreting these songs was to pay more tribute rather than reinvent,” guitarist Paul Phillips said. “These are all classics that are perfect in every sense, so who are we to mess with that? We just wanted to represent them in their true form and add a little of our sound to them. We cut everything with very few takes and tried to keep it very live like those old seventies records. We didn’t want to Pro Tool the hell out of it.”

Puddle of Mudd guitarist Paul Phillips spoke with Soundspike.com about the band hitting the road on The Carnival of Madness Tour with Shinedown, Chevelle, Sevendust and 10 Years. Phillips also talked about being back with Puddle of Mudd after exiting the band for a couple years in 2007 while they were recording the album ‘Famous’. “That was cool for awhile,” he said about “sitting around doing nothing” during his time off. “There are only so many times I can clean my house, go grocery shopping and walk my dog. After awhile, I ran out of things to do. The opportunity presented itself and the circumstances were right and the vibe was a lot different. I wouldn’t have come back to the same reasons I left the band. It was kind of a natural progression.”
Altitude TV was backstage with Wes Scantlin and Paul Phillips of Puddle of Mudd at Gibson, where they talked about the music video for ‘Spaceship’ and hitting the road with Shinedown and Skillet, Wes’ “clubrena” plan and his warning to be careful getting out of chairs, since that’s how he apparently broke his foot. Watch the chat via YouTube below the cut. (more…)

Wes Scantlin spoke with Altitude TV about plans for Puddle of Mudd to release a new album by the summer. “There’s a lot of different projects that I’m working on,” Wes said, “and the main goal is to get the Puddle of Mudd record out there, but the other ones are gonna have to take a sideburner on that.”
