PUDDLE OF MUDD frontman Wes Scantlin recently sat down with Reno’s Rock radio station 104.5 FM and discussed the status of the band’s next studio album.
Discussing the progress of the follow-up to 2019’s “Welcome To Galvania“, Wes said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “The record is basically pretty much done. I’ve just gotta polish it a little bit up and revise a couple of things. I did a lot of work with [former PUDDLE OF MUDD bassist] Doug Ardito [and former PUDDLE OF MUDD guitarist] Christian Stone that used to be playing with me and stuff like that. And they had basically saved a bunch of songs that were recorded. And I’m really happy about it. It was a little funky, but I’m glad that it was put into a musical vault. So it takes a lot of weight off my shoulders.”

Wes Scantlin made headlines six months ago after having an onstage meltdown at the EPIC Event Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin where the singer seemed to struggle with the lyrics to his own songs, openly complained about the venue’s lighting and abruptly ended the concert after just a few songs.
The PUDDLE OF MUDD frontman has had frequent problems with the law, usually based on alcohol and substance issues. Scantlin claims to have gotten sober in 2017, saying he checked in to rehab “because there’s really nowhere else to go.”
“Welcome To Galvania” was released via Pavement Entertainment.
