From a press release:

Today, the recently reunited heavy metal band Mudvayne announced The Psychotherapy Sessions, their first headlining tour in over 14 years.

Produced by Live Nation, the 26-city summer tour begins on July 20 in West Palm Beach, Florida at the iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre, making stops across the United States in Camden, Syracuse, Burgettstown, Dallas, Albuquerque, Phoenix, Reno, and more before wrapping up in Englewood, Colorado at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre on Aug. 26. They will be joined by a number of supporting acts, including Coal Chamber, performing for the first time in eight years, along with GWAR, Nonpoint, and Butcher Babies.

The tour comes to The Pavilion at Montage Mountain (1000 Montage Mountain Rd., Scranton) on Wednesday, July 26 at 5:30 p.m.

Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, March 24 at 10 a.m. via A pre-sale is live now using the code PSYCHOTHERAPY.

“An event, on the horizon, over 25 years in the making. Brave travelers… you, and the alien seed, MuDvAyNe. A journey begun, reaching zenith, now for the eschatology,” Mudvayne drummer Matt McDonough stated.

Previously, the band made waves in 2022 when they embarked on the Freaks on Parade Tour co-headlined by Rob Zombie. This 2023 tour, however, marks Mudvayne’s first headlining endeavor since 2009.

Established in Peoria, Illinois in 1996, the group found success during the rise of the “nu metal” genre with their 2000 debut album “L.D. 50.” After releasing four more records – “The End of All Things to Come” (2002), “Lost and Found” (2005), “The New Game” (2008), and “Mudvayne” (2009) – and touring relentlessly for nearly a decade, they went on hiatus in 2010 and did not reunite until 2021. Their first three full-length albums have been certified gold by the RIAA on the strength of hits like “Dig,” “Death Blooms,” “Not Falling,” “World So Cold,” “Determined,” “Happy?,” “Forget to Remember,” and “Fall into Sleep.”

“Here we go again! Mudvayne was one of our first tours when we were just starting out, so we have been friends for years,” said Nonpoint frontman Elias Soriano.

“It’s going to be great to tour with our friends again, not to mention the rest of the tour package. With this kind of lineup, we expect the pits to be insane!”
