Michael Monroe Reveals Details For New Album 'Blackout States'
Produced by Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Nomads) in Gothenburg, Sweden and mixed by Petri Majuri in Helsinki, Finland, the project is the follow-up to the 2013 Finnish chart-topper "Horns And Halos."
Monroe recorded the album with his touring band - bassist Sami Yaffa (ex-Hanoi Rocks/New York Dolls), guitarist Steve Conte (ex-New York Dolls/Company Of Wolves), guitarist Rich Jones (ex-Black Halos/Amen) and drummer Karl Rockfist (ex-Chelsea Smiles/Danzig).
"I'm extremely excited about our new album, Blackout States," says Monroe. "It has all the ingredients of a perfect rock 'n' roll record - strong melodic songs with great meaningful lyrics that defy all clichés, delivered with a punky, ballsy attitude by a killer band.
"I highly recommend 'Blackout States' to anyone who's even a little bit interested in what real, authentic, high energy rock 'n' roll at its best sounds like today."
Next week, Monroe will preview the record with the release of the lead single, "Old King´s Road." Read more including the tracklisting and see the cover art here.
