In 2006, Gray, Tribbett and Tom Maxwell joined former Pantera and Damageplan drummer Vinnie Paul to form the super-group Hellyeah.
After a tour with Sevendust, Mudvayne released the By the People, for the People (2007), an album generated by compiling selections chosen by fans on the band's website. The album debuted at number 51 on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling some 22,000 copies in its first week. The New Game would follow the next year.
In 2009, the band hoped to create a "white album" concept that many bands before them had successfully done by using only a blank white cover. The resulting self-titled work was printed using blacklight paint, making it only visible by using a "black light" (a.k.a. an ultraviolet bulb).
In 2010, Mudvayne paused to allow Gray and Tribbett to tour with Hellyeah; Hellyeah's subsequent album releases would ensure that Mudvayne would remain on hold until 2014. As it turns out that work stoppage has continued indefinitely.
In 2015, Tribbett and McDonough formed "progressive hard rock" act Audiotopsy with Skrape vocalist Billy Keeton and bassist Perry Stern. With all of this side activity going on, it is unlikely Mudvayne will reform anytime soon.
