The Skinny: Mushroomhead, the influential industrial metal band from Cleveland, OHio has just released its seventh studio album The Righteous & The Butterfly. Recorded in Cleveland, the band self produced the record with longtime co-producer Bill Korecky. The CD consists of 14 tracks, ranging from songs about survival and balance (“Devils Be Damned”, “Qwerty”, “Son Of 7”) to emotionally charged anthems (“For Your Pleasure,” “Worlds Collide”) to a riff heavy rendition of Adele’s #1 hit “Rumor Has It.” The first single “Out Of My Mind” is now available for streaming!
The album’s title The Righteous & The Butterfly 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.”
