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.

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.”

About HIGH ON FIRE:

Universally recognized as one of the most potent acts in music today, HIGH ON FIRE creates modern heavy metal that merges primal fury and aggression, hesher bombast and hall of fame heaviness.  Described as “a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume,” HIGH ON FIRE has rewritten the hard rock rule book since its formation in 1998, forging a style and sound that is both critically celebrated and absolutely unique.  The group features vocalist and cult guitar hero Matt Pike — also a founding member of the famed underground band SLEEP — along with powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and talented bassist Jeff Matz.  Pike was named as one of Rolling Stone‘s “New Guitar Gods” and is one of rock’s most charismatic figures. HIGH ON FIRE’s latest album De Vermis Mysteriis was released on April 3, 2012.

IN SOLITUDE Announce New Album, Stream Title Track

Sweden’s In Solitude have announced their third album, “Sister.” The album will be released on October 1st in North America and September 27/30 in Europe/UK. The title track from “Sister” is streaming now on metalblade.com/insolitude, where fans can also pre-order the CD, CD/T-shirt bundle, vinyl, as well as a digital copy via iTunes.

Vocalist Pelle Åhman speaks on behalf of In Solitude:

“It’s time to release our third album, and things have never felt this clear and pervasive before. This is a feeling that has permeated our whole lives during the latest year of writing and recording this album, as well as digesting and dealing with its consequences. And it has been wonderful, overwhelming and utterly devastating. Which, in the world of In Solitude, are very positive things, and exactly what was required.

“It is a very special album for us, and I am very thankful and proud of my brothers (including our great friend, and producer, Martin Konie Ehrencrona), for this is truly the most visceral music we’ve ever made, and we can’t wait for you to experience it too.

“You come without. And all falls within. There is a light in the world. There is a stone to the head.”

“Sister” was recorded at Studio Cobra in Stockholm, Sweden during March 2013. The album was produced and mixed by Martin “Konie” Ehrencrona and stands as a logical next step above and beyond its predecessor, “The World.The Flesh.The Devil.” In Solitude’s strength resides in their ability to craft dark and oppressive atmospheres within the auditory realm of classic heavy metal. “Sister” compounds this trademark sound further, beginning with the acoustic intro, “He Comes,” and saturates the record in an aura of uniqueness; see: “Lavender” and the title track.

The album concludes with an 8-minute, driving, near trance-like opus that features guest guitarist Pelle Forsberg (Watain). Additionally, Jarboe of Swans fame can be heard on “Horses in the Ground.” Moods range from Mercyful Fate-esque guitar flavors, shadows of Black Sabbath, the heavy dissonance of Swans, to straight-forward, ear worm riffs. In any case, one thing can be said for certain: their delivery is as genuine as it is impressive.

North American fans will have an opportunity to see In Solitude live this Fall. The band will be supporting Watain on their “Wild Hunt” tour beginning on October 8th in New York City. The tour also features support from Tribulation. Dates can be found below, as well as on facebook.com/insolitudeofficial.

TRUCKFIGHT​ERS U.S. Tour Underway

Örebro, Sweden fuzz frontrunners TRUCKFIGHTERS have announced a U.S. headlining tour in support of their forthcoming new EP The Chairman. The highly respected trio – called “the best band that’s ever existed” by QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE frontman Josh Homme – kicked off a U.S. trek on August 19 in Brooklyn, NY. The two week trip hit Philadelphia (August 20), Chicago (August 24), Los Angeles (August 27), Tucson (August 31) and more showcasing TRUCKFIGHTERS incredibly fuzz-tastic and electric live performance.

The band’s sophomore album Phi was released in 2007 and in 2009 TRUCKFIGHTERS released the LP Mania, which has become a “modern classic” in underground rock circles. The album featured the single and video “Con of Man” (view at this location) and garnered the trio a spotlight on the MTV Sweden show Fuzz.

BOMBUS Premiere New Video

Los Angeles, CA – Gothenburg‘s metal bastards BOMBUS have completed their second blistering video for their Century Media debut albumTHE POET AND THE PARROT. The video for “Enter The Night” was created by former bass player, Ulf Lundèn, who is now in charge of all the band’s artwork and shows the detailed love that Ulf took to create this work of art.

Bombus cover

The band has teamed up with METAL HAMMER (UK) to premiere the video. Check it out here: www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/the-new-bombus-video-is-pretty-freaky/

Here is what BOMBUS had to say about the video:

“Enter the Night is, obviously since we’re using it as a video track, one of our favorites on the album. The song pretty much sums up what we’re about as it starts out as an aggressive rocker and ends on a more barren note. Behind the video is ex BOMBUS bass player Ulf – who totally has outdone himself with this video – where he lets BOMBUS enter and travel through his version of the night. Enjoy and buckle up!” – BOMBUS

THE POET AND THE PARROT will be in stores September 17 and will be available as a limited edition Digipak with 2 additional bonus tracks, as a standard CD and as a gatefold vinyl (180 gram on black or dark green wax).

OCEANO Stream New Single

Los Angeles, CA – First breathing life in 2006, OCEANO first emerged onto the extreme metal scene via the Chicago underground. The band quickly established an intense work ethic and set their sights on being one of the loudest, angriest and most intense bands around. After a few member changes and some slight adjustments to their sound, OCEANO are now set to release their third album, INCISIONS on October 1, 2013.

For OCEANO, Incisions is essentially the first of their albums to be approached lyrically on an emotional and personal level. Its purpose lyrically and musically is to expel the stress and inner demons of their time between albums.
