Mushroomhead, the industrial metal band from Cleveland, OH, has released its seventh studio album The Righteous & The Butterfly today via Megaforce Records. Recorded in Cleveland, the band self produced the 14-track record with longtime co-producer Bill Korecky. The first single “Out Of My Mind” can be played here:

Mushroomhead is comprised of drummers Skinny, Robert Diablo and Stitch, vocalists J Mann, Jeffery Nothing & Waylon, guitarist Church, keyboardist Shmotz, and bassist Dr. F.

The album’s title is a dedication to original guitarist J.J. Righteous and the band’s former photographer (and drummer Steve “Skinny” Felton’s wife) Vanessa Solowiow who both passed away too soon. “J.J. was a key member of our band” says Skinny. “He played on the first three records and Vanessa was our photographer and the mother of my children. They were both huge pieces of Mushroomhead and this record is dedicated to them.”

The Righteous & The Butterfly marks the return of vocalist J Mann and the debut of new guitarist Church and bassist Dr. F. “This album damn near wrote itself” proclaims Skinny. “With J mann’s return, this album is a fresh twist on a familiar vibe. It’s also the first album with Church and Dr. F. They brought in fresh blood while keeping the integrity of the band’s “sound and vision intact. This is the 20th year of Mushroomhead and this album is us getting back to our roots.”

Mushroomhead came together when drummer Skinny formed the band as a side project. The band wore masks to go unrecognized, but after only a few shows they developed a rabid and loyal fan base in Cleveland. They released their 1995 self-titled debut album independently and it went on to became an underground hit. After a brief stint on Eclipse Records, a move to Universal Records saw the release of XX (a combination of past independent releases) in 2001. In 2003, XIII was released, spawning the single Sun Doesn’t Rise which was featured on MTV: Headbangers Ball and the Freddy Vs. Jason soundtrack. In the Fall of 2010, the band released “Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children” and it debuted at #44 on the Billboard charts.
