Welcome to Galvania is the fifth studio album by American rock band Puddle of Mudd. This is their first studio album of new material in a decade since 2009's Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate, marking the longest gap between two studio albums in Puddle of Mudd's career. It is also their first release of any new material since 2011's re:(disc)overed, a compilation album of covers. Welcome to Galvania was released worldwide September 13, 2019.
Background and release
After the group finished touring in support for their 2011 compilation album re:(disc)overed, over the course of the next few years lead singer Wes Scantlin had multiple run-ins with the law and multiple arrests. These strings of bad behavior occurred during many shows too, some where Wes would not show at all or was too intoxicated to perform.
On September 21, 2014 the band released a new single titled "Piece of the Action" to digital outlets though the track had no official announcement from the band and zero support from them or any label.
On July 17, 2015 it was announced via Loudwire that the band was recording tracks for a new album at Grandmasters Studio with producer Cameron Webb.
In January 2018 the band finally revealed lead singer Wes Scantlin had been in rehab for some months and was reportedly doing well and the band would resume touring once he was 100% level headed.
