Mudvayne fans, don't assume that the band has split up just because singer Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbet have spent most of the past three years working only on Hellyeah. Tribbet writes on the Hellyeah Twitter account, "Just to set the record straight, Mudvayne is on hiatus. Chad and I are concentrating on Hellyeah and will be touring [with] Hellyeah the next two years."

Hellyeah's third album is due out early in the spring.

Hollywood Undead are on their final U.S tour behind American Tragedy, opening for Avenged Sevenfold, and they're using their time on the bus to work on their next album. Vocalist J-Dog says they feel that the more than two years they took to release American Tragedy was just too long, so they want to get back in the studio soon and have a new album out by next summer. J-Dog says "We have so many ideas just waiting to go."

Avenged Sevenfold and Hollywood Undead play in Huntsville, Alabama tonight, the tour hits Missoula December 13th.
