Morning Hype! New Monster Magnet

Well lookie lookie......one of my favs from back in the day has decided to quit living in the past and put out some new tunes. Lost Patrol comes out Oct 15th via Napalm Records and they are touring the whole country(along with Vancouver/Toronto) in support of it. They've also released the first single called The Duke(Of Supernatural) and while it leans towards the slow burner style track that they have on almost all their records I quite like it. Sometimes the 'don't fix it if it ain't broke' mantra can serve a band well. Looking forward to the rest of the album. On a more selfish note, after seeing them perform Dopes and Spine Of God in their entireties the last couple years I was really hoping that my personal favorite Superjudge would be next on the docket for this years Xmas treat. Way to go acting like a real band Monster Magnet. Pffft....
