Unleash Title Track of MINDFUCKER
New Album Out March 23
“Ladies and gentlemen, I humbly present for your consideration
the title track from our new album: MINDFUCKER. We got the rock if you want it! I hope you can dig it”, Dave Wyndorf, MONSTER MAGNET frontman.
Today the title track and first single "MINDFUCKER" has been made available for streaming.
Get a first listen to the track HERE.
MONSTER MAGNET puts the pedal to the metal with "MINDFUCKER", their 11th record. "MINDFUCKER" is different, a step forward and a step back at the same time to the almighty roots of hard rock music, kindled by the unpretentious Proto-punk era. Up tempo, savage in both sound and spirit, "MINDFUCKER" is the real deal! The album has the potential to surprise and to whip up the love for the genre, while still giving the sludgies and stoner freaks exactly what they wish for in a new MONSTER MAGNET album.
"MINDFUCKER" Track Listing:
1. Rocket Freak
4. I'm God
7. Want Some
9. All Day Midnight
10. When The Hammer Comes Down
MONSTER MAGNET line up:
Dave Wyndorf (vocals, guitar)

Activist-Artist Aims to Incite Social Change with Upcoming Album, Set to Release in Mid/Late 2018!
Groundbreaking art-rock performer, author and spoken word artist OTEP is thrilled to divulge new, behind-the-scenes information about her upcoming, currently untitled, full-length album.
The album – her eighth overall and second with Napalm Records – is scheduled to hit stores later this year. OTEP and her band are currently recording at The Lair in Los Angeles, completely utilizing the same equipment used on their first album, Sevas Tra (down to her original vocal microphone, a SHURE Beta 58), in order to create a sound reminiscent of their roots. The Lair is also where OTEP recorded Smash The Control Machine, the band’s fourth release.
OTEP says this upcoming eighth album is undoubtedly the band’s most authentic and honest. “I’m co-producing this album with my guitarist Aristotle, which has allowed us to create without limitations. The musicality is stellar and has been elevated to a whole new stratosphere of sound. With Aristotle on guitar, Justin Kier on drums and Drew Barnes on bass, each musician has a powerful voice on this album.”
As for her lyrics, OTEP says, “No one is safe, no one escapes. It’s powerful, poetic, patriotic protest music. One could say it’s an activist album hoping to incite social change and support those who are at the barricades, who are marching in the streets for justice, who are demanding our government protect our great nation from enemies foreign and domestic - this includes the bloated colostomy bag disgracing the White House, Traitor Trump, and his loafer licking cronies… but I digress.”
This new album will follow OTEP’s previous full-length, Generation Doom, released via Napalm Recordsin 2016. The critically acclaimed album debuted at #10 on the Independent Chart, #7 on the Rock Chart, #4 on the Hard Rock Chart and #109 on the Top 200 Albums Chart, according to Nielsen SoundScan. OTEP expects this next album to transcend all previous achievements, and feels spiritually strong about the number eight.
“Writing our eighth album is not only a blessing for which we are forever grateful but the number itself is said to have magical properties,” says OTEP. “In Norse mythology, the horse of the god Odin has eight legs. The Pythagoreans considered the number eight the “little holy number”. The eighth day of the Chinese New Year is the annual gathering of all the gods in Heaven. In the Tarot, eight is the card for Justice which seems appropriate considering the current political climate we are suffering through. The mathematical symbol for infinity is an eight on its side. There are eight festivals observed in the Wicca Wheel of the Year. There were eight gates surrounding the ancient city of Babylon. The eighth gate was named the Gate of Ishtar. Ishtar is the goddess of love and war, the Queen of the Earth and Heaven. She is the morning and evening star. Qualities I certainly relate to. And finally, I’m a Scorpio and Scorpio is the eighth astrological sign in the Zodiac.
A 33rd Degree Freemason and Master Rosicrucian, Manly P. Hall once said, ‘The rites of the Scorpion are the Mysteries of the Apocalypse and the ceremonies of Dionysus.’ Expect the unexpected. Expect to have your brain pushed back.”
OTEP is an explosion of inspiration and motivation, empowered by their dedication to the arts, being a voice for the voiceless and fighting injustice. OTEP follows in the footsteps of fellow activism-focused recording artists like Prophets of Rage, Woodie Guthrie and others as the next, most aggressive chapter of musical social change.
Originally discovered by Jack and Sharon Osbourne in Los Angeles, OTEP was offered to play Ozzfest as an unsigned band and was the first female fronted band to play the touring festival. Nominated by GLAAD for Outstanding Artist Award alongside Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert, she won MTV’s prestigious Best Video for “Music With A Message” award. The singer, writer and activist spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2008 on behalf of Rock The Vote. A celebrated spoken word artist, OTEP has appeared on HBO’s Def Poetry twice, recorded an unreleased poetry album and authored three books of poetry. She has also authored a book of short stories titled Movies In My Head and produced and directed an audiobook of one of the stories titled Pinebox Jake. Utilizing her incredibly dynamic vocal range, OTEP also succeeds as a voiceover artist, appearing in many projects such as the award-winning video game The Last Of Us and in feature films including THE HOBBIT: The Battle Of The Five Armies.
Formed from the poetic marrow of creative intercourse, OTEP is far more than a band. OTEP is an art movement, a revolution; breaking ground. Breaking rules. Breaking barriers. Articulate. Aggressive. Pure Adrenaline. ARTcore of Heavy Mental Rock.
