The test of a new band, sorta.

The Mule is coming out with their first recording as a 4tet. This will tell us what the new Mule sounds like. I'm nervous and excited! I have loved these guys so long but haven't heard what I like since Allen Woody died.

The long awaited and much anticipated new Gov't Mule studio record, "Deja Voodoo" will be released on September 14, 2004. This album, the first to include keyboardist Danny Louis and bassist Andy Hess along with founding members Warren Haynes and Matt Abts, is comprised completely of songs which have never been performed live. When asked to describe the album, Haynes Haynes says "It sounds like Gov't Mule, but it doesn't sound like anything we've already done. It has the same muscle and the same influences and character. But the fact is that it's a new band interpreting, and I'm writing songs for the sound of the new band."
"Deja Voodoo" is available for Pre-Sale now @ Music Today's Gov't Mule store. It is also available for Pre-Order through The Mule Van, which will be in the parking lot of every single Allman Brothers/Grateful Dead show that Warren Haynes plays this Summer.

Everyone who Pre-Orders "Deja Voodoo" will receive receive a limited edition, exclusive (not available in stores or at shows) "Mule Tracks Sampler" featuring live soundboard Mule tunes and be entered to win one of the following prizes:

Grand Prize: 2 pairs of front row tickets to the Gov't Mule show of the winner's choice*
