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 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.”

Check out a stream of the song “The Duke” HERE.

FLOOR Signs To Season Of Mist

Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of the widely-respected underground rock band FLOOR.

FLOOR (Steve Brooks – Guitar, Vocals, Anthony Vialon – Bass, Henry Wilson – drums) recently reunited on the heels of their career retrospective Below and Beyond box set, and are preparing to enter the studio to record a new full-length album.

The band released their wildly influential self-titled full-length album in 2002, before splitting. Brooks went on to form another critically-acclaimed band: TORCHE, while Wilson formed DOVE.

CONDITIONS Announce New Record Details

(NEW YORK, NY) – Richmond’s own CONDITIONS will be releasing their newest full length Full Of War on March 26, 2013.

Vocalist Brandon Roundree offers an explanation of the record’s title.“Life is a series of decisions and what are decisions but little mini-wars, opposing forces, pulling upon each other?” Roundtree concludes,Full Of War lyrically ties the record together literally and metaphorically.”

On Tour with Sleeping With Sirens in March
Lyric Video Fan Content Needed ASAP!
“Full Of War” Available March 26, 2013

Producers Brandon Paddock and Taylor Larsen (PERIPHERY), who’ve done various production and engineering work with THE USED, PAPA ROACH and BLACK VEIL BRIDES, among others has helped CONDITIONS craft an album that is leaps and bounds beyond their already impressive debut, Fluorescent Youth.

“We wholeheartedly believed in our last record,” insists Roundtree. “But then after we lived with it, we realized it was maybe a little ‘safe’ for us. We took that very much to heart and decided to showcase the fact that we are not a play-it-safe band.”

Even the album artwork shows a very different side of CONDITIONS. Artist Matt ‘Portland’ Hay of Sons of Nero is normally known for his work in the metal and hardcore community shows a differnet side with Full Of War.

The band is out on the road right now with LET LIVE and will be joining SLEEPING WITH SIRENS on the TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT TOUR starting in March.

The band is also launching an initiative today that aims to get fans involved in debuting the first single from the record. The band breaks it down here:

“We will be releasing the first track from our upcoming album Full Of War soon, and we need your help to bring the words to life! We thought it would be fun to have all of you submit photos of yourself with the lyrics to our song Love Elusive. Make a sign, write the words on your face, write them on your arm, write them on a wall, act out the words, spray paint your dog (don’t really do that), but get creative!”

Below are the lyrics, so take a word, take a line, take a verse, etc. The more content we get, the better!

SUBMIT ALL PHOTOS BY 2/13/13 TO: CONDITIONSLYRICVIDEO@GMAIL.COM

Have fun!

LOVE ELUSIVE

All the girls and boys who fill their voids with anything that comes
Are you aware of what you’ve done?
Cause I can’t believe the mockery, the mess you’ve made of love
If you hunt for a word, the feeling will never come

And I try to see through open eyes
And I try to learn the lesson
Then I let it die…

Lost love, push shove, feel it in my bones again
And that weight will drown me, crown me king of all the skeletons
And although I may walk with the dead men
I won’t stop ’til I know when
This will end like everything must end
And outgrow my bones again

All the suits and ties afraid of time will never make amends
Are you aware you’ll come undone?
You think you’ll fly beyond our sky and the ground won’t see you end
But you’re only melting in the sun
Tear those wings off, you are one of us

Lost love, push shove, feel it in my bones again
And that weight will drown me, crown me king of all the skeletons
And although I may walk with the dead men
I won’t stop ’til I know when
This will end like everything must end
And outgrow my bones again

Why can’t you see you could be free again if you just simply choose to be?
I swear you could make it feel good again if you just simply let it be…

Lost love, push shove, feel it in my bones again
And that weight will drown me, crown me king of all the skeletons
And although I may walk with the dead men
I won’t stop ’til I know when
This will end like everything must end
And outgrow my bones again

CONDITIONS: Brandon Roundtree (Vocals), Alex Howard (Guitar & Vocals), Ryan Tinsley (Drums) and Corey Thomas (Bass)
