Singer WAYLON REAVIS Quits MUSHROOMHEAD

Due to “irreconcilable differences with band ownership,” vocalist Waylon Reavis has severed all ties with MUSHROOMHEAD and the group’s record label, Filthy Hands. Waylon is thankful for the opportunity MUSHROOMHEAD has provided him the last 11 years and will now be concentrating his time and efforts on another project.

MUSHROOMHEAD‘s current lineup still includes two vocalists, J Mann and Jeffery Nothing.

The band’s eighth studio album, “The Righteous & The Butterfly”, sold around 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 20 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on May 13, 2014 via Megaforce Records, the CD was recorded in Cleveland with longtime co-producer Bill Korecky and consists of 14 tracks, ranging from songs about survival and balance (“Devils Be Damned”, “Qwerty”, “Son Of 7”) to emotionally charged anthems (“For Your Pleasure”, “Worlds Collide”) to a riff-heavy rendition of Adele‘s No. 1 hit “Rumor Has It”.

The album’s title, “The Righteous & The Butterfly”, is a dedication to original guitarist J.J. Righteous and the band’s former photographer (and drummer Steve “Skinny” Felton‘s wife) Vanessa Solowiow, who both passed away too soon.
