Staind releases ‘Mudshovel’ from upcoming ‘Live: It’s Been Awhile’

Staind has released a live version of “Mudshovel” from its upcoming album, “Live: It’s Been Awhile,” out May 7, 2021, via Yap’em/Alchemy Recordings. Listen below.

“Mudshovel,” then titled “Mudshuvel,” originally appeared on Staind’s 1996 self-released debut album “Tormented,” which led to the band’s first record deal with Flip Records. A new version appeared on the band’s label debut, “Dysfunction,” in 1999.

“There hasn’t been a gig since we first wrote this song in ’96 where we haven’t played Mudshovel,” guitarist Mike Mushok said. “It’s definitely become a fan favorite and I have as much fun playing it now as I did back then.”
