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.

Sunday Bloody Sunday

We’re one day away from showtime!

My excitement (& appreciation) is unwavering. In fact, I’m become more & more stoked with each passing day.

Unfortunately, the NHL is posing quite a problem today. It’s impossible to turn away from the Rangers vs. Flyers game, but there is a little window to get work done between the end of the game & Tim Horton’s Heritage Classic.
What is the Heritage Classic?
It’s the second outdoor NHL game of the season. This time, the Montreal Canadiens visit frigid Calgary to battle Jerome Iginla & the Flames in sub-zero temps!

Also, MONSTER MAGNET return to Starland Ballroom TONIGHT! Slayerville, baby.
