Mudvayne will no longer perform at this weekend’s Louder than Life festival due to frontman Chad Gray testing positive for COVID-19.
“After taking every precaution to follow CDC Covid protocols during rehearsals and recent performance Chad Gray and a few staff members have unfortunately tested positive for Covid-19,” the band writes in an Instagram post.
“The safety of our organization, fans and festival partners must come first,” the statement continues. “We are left no choice but to cancel our performance at Louder than Life this weekend.”
The decision to cancel must’ve been especially painful for Mudvayne, who reunited this year after being on hiatus for over a decade. The band just played their first show since 2009 at the Inkcarceration festival earlier in September.
Mudvayne still plans to play the Aftershock festival in October and Welcome to Rockville in November. They’re also on the lineup for the 2022 Voragos destination festival.
