It’s time to tune in to for the relaunch of their newly designed website. Focused around the late October worldwide release of their new studio album Mastermind (due out in October via Napalm Records), the relaunch will also be the worldwide premiere of the new album’s cover artwork, designed by Invisible Creature (Wolfmother, Chris Cornell, Foo Fighters).

“I’m extremely proud of this new album,”
says Magnet frontman Dave Wyndorf. “It’s been an amazing process, the songs are exactly what I wanted them to be, and I’m proud to begin presenting this new phase of the band on our new website.”

Dave Wyndorf, describes Mastermind: “It’s a big, beefy ball of demented anthems and power rock.” He says with enthusiasm.

“The music itself is exaggerated and muscular. Like classic rock gone insane! Giant hooks, giant sounds. The rockers are direct and intense. The ballads, trippy and strange. It’s guitar heaven.”

And the lyrics? Wyndorf laughs. “Well, the lyrics read like a fever-dream of life in the 21st century. Cynicism, optimism, satire, sex, deluded fantasies and dead-on reality. They’re all here ? sometimes even in the same song!”

“In my world, images, information and emotions tend to intertwine. I?ll describe the smallest details of my personal life in crazy, cinematic terms. When I write, the words play out in my mind like scenes from a movie and that’s the vibe I tried to capture on “Mastermind” ? rapid-fire emotion. What can I say? I’m having a weird life and I have to write it down that way.”

Monster Magnet make their way to Europe for a short festival run beginning next week (dates HERE) and have just put tickets on sale for a string of UK dates in November. European dates to follow.

The band will be making many more announcements leading up to the release of  Mastermind. Join the RSS Feed for up-to-date information and updates.
