Methods Of Mayhem’s new album A PUBLIC DISSERVICEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT is in stores now via Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records and features Lee collaborating with the world. Lee and his team, including producer Scott Humphrey, singer-guitarist J3 and others, wrote and recorded the songs for the album, then made the core components of each available for download on www.thepublicrecord.com to anyone who wished to add their playing or otherwise re-interpret the music however they saw fit. The song files were made available on The Public Record on October 5th, 2009. By the end of the submission period in February, 2010, the page was viewed over 1 million times and over 10,000 submissions were uploaded. Lee listened to every single submission that was uploaded, chose the best, and integrated the actual audio tracks into the album’s final cuts. Every musician whose part was used is credited and thanked on the album…and those who made the cut found out for the first time on Tuesday, September 21st when the album was released!
Methods of Mayhem self-titled debut was released in 1999 and was certified RIAA Gold. The album featured Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock and Fred Durst among others. Methods Of Mayhem’s set was a featured highlight of 2000’s Ozzfest.
