MONSTER MAGNET New Song, Announce Tour with ROYAL THUNDER, ZODIAC

MONSTER MAGNET will be releasing their new album Last Patrol October 15 via Napalm Records. Dave Wyndorf and Phil Caivano produced Last Patrol, while Evil Joe Barresi mixed the album with additional production duties handled by Matt Hyde. The artwork was created by John Sumrow with consultation coming from Chris Ryall and designs by Ryan Clark for Invisible Creatures Inc. The album will be available as a Limited Edition Digipak which contains two bonus tracks, standard CD, 2LP and digital format. The album is available for pre-order on Amazon.

Today MONSTER MAGNET has teamed up with Crave Online for an exclusive premiere of a new track from Last Patrol.  Get a first listen to the song “Mindless Ones” HERE.

In support of Last Patrol, MONSTER MAGNETwill be embarking on a full-blown North American Tour!  Although the band has toured Europe relentlessly over the past decade, this is MONSTER MAGNET‘s first full North American tour in over 10 years!  The band is eager to hit the road in the states for the first time in what seems like forever. Prepare to hear MONSTER MAGNET classics and new cuts from Last Patrol for the first time live! Support will come from Royal Thunder and Zodiac. The tour is scheduled to kick off November 14 in Grand Rapids, MI and will run through December 14 in New York, NY.

Frontman and MONSTER MAGNET mastermind Dave Wyndorf checked in with his thoughts about Last Patrol:

Last Patrol is a return to our roots in terms of vibe and recording style. It’s full-on psychedelic space-rock with a 60’s garage feel, recorded almost exclusively with vintage guitars, amps and effects in our hometown of Red Bank, NJ. The songs are a kind of Space-Noir, tales of cosmic revenge, peaking libidos, alienation and epic strangeness. It’s a weird trip through the back alleys of a dark, retro-future, which not by coincidence very much resembles my own life. (laughs) The lyrics aren’t fantasy really, rather a recounting of my musings on, observations of and general emotional reaction to my life and environment during a 1 week writing period in February of 2013. But I tend to use the vernacular and imagery of science fiction and surrealism to express myself and that’s where these lyrics get trippy. There’s also our cover version of Donovan’s “Three Kingfishers” which I thought fit the mood of the album.”

Last Patrol was produced by Phil Caivano and myself with an effort to bring a home grown feel to the whole affair. We had been doing smaller projects out of Phil’s “Studio 13″ recording space and I really felt comfortable there so it was the natural choice on where to record the next full-scale Monster Magnet album. Phil and I grew up together and have a shared love of some very particular vintage music and styles. And everybody in the band played their asses off on this one.”

“In 2008 & 2009, I created a touring package called “Progressive Nation” and with Dream Theater headlining, we did three full tours (two in North America and one in Europe) that showcased a variety of bands that embraced the spirit and musicality of progressive music.
Well after a 5 year hiatus, I have decided to resurrect Progressive Nation and this time we are taking it to the seas! But rather than a 4 band bill like previous Progressive Nation tours, we have expanded the bill to OVER A DOZEN of today’s greatest progressive bands, musicians and artists! (and there may be one or two more still to be confirmed)
Myself and my former DT bandmate Derek Sherinian have teamed up with Sixthman (who have done incredibly successful cruises with Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the annual Kiss Cruise to name a few) as well as our friends at InsideOut Music and look forward to a very successful inaugural launch of PROGRESSIVE NATION AT SEA Feb 18 thru 22 2014

Skinless To Headline Delaware Deathfest

NY Death Metal legends SKINLESS have reformed after a 2 year hiatus to headline the third day of Delaware Deathfest this October alongside label-mates Dying Fetus, Exhumed, Ringworm, Howl and Call of the Void plus Suffocation, Deicide, Broken Hope, Brutality and many more!  The 2nd annual Delaware Deathfest takes place October 4-6 in Wilmington, DE at Mojo 13.  More info on the fest is available here.

Commented vocalist Sherwood Webber: 

We’re back, the classic SKINLESS lineup has always had an undeniable live chemistry and it’s time to unleash the beast again. We’re all old buddies and if we have the opportunity to destroy some stages around the world again, it feels right…. who knows what’s next? In keeping with the old SKINLESS credo of not giving a fuck… we’re back to destroy…. we can’t let EXHUMED have ALL the fun! Also….. if you ever told me that we’d be playing with BRUTALITY when I was 15 years old listening to the Screams Of Anguish tape in Noah’s Camaro, I would never have believed it, this is awesome!

Guitarist Noah Carpenter adds:

This is the lineup that put SKINLESS on the metal map, so it’s great to be back. We won’t be the road dogs of the past, but we’ll be playing some select festivals and drinking all their beer. So sit back, slip on your absorbent undergarments, and let the mayhem begin… again!

Skinless Tour Dates:

Free Scion A/V EP Featuring VEKTOR

Scion A/V, the creative enterprise of Scion devoted to the discovery, nurture, funding and distribution of compelling music and arts programming today releases a special two track, 15 minute EP featuring the scintillating sounds of Philadelphia sci-fi thrash metal band VEKTOR. Recorded this past January at The Glass House in Pomona, California as part of the Scion-presented Earache Records label showcase (that also featured Oceano, Bonded By Blood and White Wizzard), the free EP features VEKTOR performing the mind-obliterating tracks Cosmic Cortex and Tetrastructural Minds. The EP is available as a free download now at ScionAV.com.

“Earache has introduced metal fans to many great bands over the years,” comments Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotion for Scion.

“Vektor is a band that creates metal for fans of metal. We’re happy to work with them on this release.”

VEKTOR formed in 2002 in Tempe, Arizona and quickly established a name for itself by embracing heavy metal’s past while carving out an original niche; combining thrash with elements of black metal and progressive rock. The band’s labyrinthine songs question reality and existence while at the same time portraying the future as a dystopian wasteland destroyed by greed, power, corruption and control. Weird time signatures, banshee wails, eerie jazzy passages, over the top soloing and frontman David DiSanto’s banshee calls intertwine into cohesive, atom-smashing assaults that move from intricate progressive playing to breakneck thrashing in the blink of an eye. With vicious musicianship, complex composition and futuristic sci-fi themes, VEKTOR recalls the glory days of Voivod, Watchtower and Coroner as its herculean sound challenges the parameters of modern heavy metal.

VEKTOR EP tracklist:

1.) Cosmic Cortex (9:40)
2.) Tetrastructural Minds (5:27)

Earache Records was founded in 1987 by Digby “Dig” Pearson. The seminal UK label has launched the careers of many acts now widely considered pioneers of extreme metal including Napalm Death, Carcass, At The Gates, Morbid Angel, Cathedral, Bolt Thrower, Godflesh and Entombed and had a heavy hand in exposing underground music fans to the realms of death metal and grindcore music. Earache is currently celebrating more then two decades of bringing extreme music to the masses.

“a galvanizing onslaught of technical riffing and fully weaponized percussion.
