(Sub) MonstrO announce 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.
"We didn't waste a moment (in the studio), and it worked like a band is supposed to work," said bassist Kyle 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. 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.
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.
