Puddle of Mudd have over a dozen tour dates scheduled between early March and mid-May and are encouraging bands in each city to engage in an online "battle of the bands" to compete for an opening spot at each stop.

Frontman Wes Scantlin formally opened the competition on social media, sharing a video which outlined the details. Artists in the surrounding area of each tour date can upload a video of their music as well as some basic information about their group and the name of the city they're hoping to open in. The deadline is two weeks before the show and Puddle of Mudd will determine which band will be selecting for the corresponding dates.

Get more details in the video shared on Puddle of Mudd's Twitter page, seen directly below. Check further down the page to see the band's upcoming tour dates.

Last year, Puddle of Mudd released Welcome to Galvania, their first album since issuing Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate in 2009. Between releases, Scantlin endured a plethora of legal issues while dealing with substance abuse. He was even incarcerated at one point, ultimately viewing the sentence as a blessing from God.
