New York, NY Starting today, October 5th, Methods of Mayhem’s Public Mayhem album collaboration project is up and running! As was previously announced,   Tommy Lee and Methods producer Scott Humphrey have posted isolated instrument tracks, or stems, from the upcoming album on the website www.thepublicrecord.com. Anyone with a great musical idea is invited to play a part in helping to achieve true Public Mayhem, i.e. collaborate on the album. A wide range of formats are available to work with, including RiffWorks, WAV, Logic, GarageBand, ProTools and the Four Track 3.0 iPhone application.

Participants will also have a chance to perform with Methods of Mayhem at their record release show.  Public Mayhem is set for release in early 2010.
