Recently it seems each new day reveals yet another upcoming album release to add to our collective “Most Anticipated Albums Of 2018″ list. One after another they are named, while one of the more anxiety-inducing gifts headed our way is the latest from The Garden State’s stoner rock royalty Monster Magnet.
‘Mindfucker‘, the long-running act’s latest, upcoming studio album, will drop from the cosmic span on March 23rd from Napalm Records. Like a head trip to the outer reaches, these pioneers of intermittent psychedelia might just be sitting in the catbird seat as of today.
That is because we now possess our very first full selection from the album, the “Mindfucker” title track! It is streaming in the Bandcamp player below and it is what you might expect from Monster Magnet ala flurries of fuzzy guitars, punk-riveted attitude, and endless motion. Dig it!
‘Mindfucker’ is now available for pre-order at this location.
Monster Magnet is:
Dave Wyndorf (Vocals)
Garrett Sweeny (Guitar)
