MonstrO To Release Self-Titled Debut on September 6, Joining Kyuss Lives! and The Sword on Fall Tour

MonstrO have just announced a September 6, 2011 release date for their self-titled debut release through Vagrant Records!

The Atlanta, Georgia-headquartered psychedelic hard rock band recorded MonstrO in just 14 days with Alice in Chains vocalist William DuVall in the producer’s seat.

Formed in 2009, MonstrO is guitarist Juan Montoya [ex-Torche], bassist Kyle Sanders [ex-Bloodsimple], drummer Bevan Davies [ex-Bloodsimple, Danzig], and vocalist and guitarist Charlie Suarez.

“We didn’t waste a moment (in the studio), and it worked like a band is supposed to work,” said Sanders. “The album gets spacey, dreamy, and tripped-out, and then it gets straight-up heavy. I want it to be some kind of escape for people and for them to walk away from it happy and feeling completed in some way.”

Fans can catch MonstrO live on tour this fall when they support Kyuss Lives! and The Sword on one of the most highly anticipated rock tours of the season. The tour begins in Toronto, Ontario on September 16 and includes stops in major cities across the U.S. before wrapping up in Pomona, California at the Fox Theater on October 8.

MonstrO Signs with Vagrant! Debut Album Coming Summer 2011

MonstrO, the highly pedigreed atmospheric hard rock four-piece from Atlanta, Georgia, have signed with Vagrant Records to release their debut album! Formed in early 2009, MonstrO is bassist Kyle Sanders (Bloodsimple), drummer Bevan Davies (Bloodsimple, Danzig), guitarist Juan Montoya (Torche) and vocalist/guitarist Charlie Suarez.

MonstrO entered a studio in Atlanta earlier this week with producer (and Alice in Chains vocalist) William DuVall.

“We’ve been collectively writing and recording for two years now and thanks to Vagrant we’re finally recording our first proper full-length,” said Sanders. “We’ll be locked up for the next month recording and mixing with our good friend William DuVall at the helm. These songs have taken on a life of their own and we’re all extremely thrilled to lay them all down and begin the journey.”

A late summer release is planned.
