Puddle of Mudd Radio

Puddle of Mudd's Wes Scantlin is ready to return to action.  The frontman released the track "Piece of the Action" late last month with a revamped lineup, and now the group is set to hit the road for a 25-plus-date club tour.

Scantlin tells The Post-Crescent he was "tired of sitting around," explaining that he's been "going through a lot of transitional stuff" lately in terms of his management and record label. Scantlin says he's also stopped drinking and smoking, adding that "things go better when [he's] good." 

Puddle of Mudd's next album, which will be their first since 2009, is due out sometime next year.  But in the meantime, Scantlin and company are set to kick off their North American trek tonight in Arlington Heights, Illinois.
