The band's debut album, L.D. 50, was published in 2000 and features the breakthrough single "Dig," which won an MTV2 Award. After releasing four more albums and receiving a Grammy nomination for their performance of "Determined," the lead single from 2005's Lost and Found, the band went on an extended break in 2010, after having toured nonstop for almost a decade. The on April 19, 2021, the unthinkable happened, Mudvayne announced they were reforming and will play their first shows in 12 years that autumn.
With only a few dates left available for 2021, the band decided to start off on a limited festival tour, playing at Inkcarceration Music & Tattoo in Mansfield, Aftershock in Sacramento, and Welcome to Rockville in Florida. The following year, the band resumed touring full time with performances at the Upheaval Festival in Grand Rapids and the Rock Fest in Cadott, before joining and co-headlining The Freaks on Parade tour with Rob Zombie in the summer of 2022, their first North American tour in 13 years.
The group has spoken highly of Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey, citing it as an inspiration for the band's first studio album, L.D. 50. Musically, Mudvayne is not your normal Heavy Metal band; they're known for blending in elements of death metal, jazz, jazz fusion, progressive rock, speed metal, thrash metal, and even world music into their sound. Black Sabbath, Carcass, Deicide, Emerson, Emperor, Genesis, King Crimson, Lake & Palmer, Miles Davis, Pantera, Rush, and Tool are only some of the bands that have been cited as inspirations by the band members.
