Monster Magnet Streaming 'Watch Me Fade' From Mastermind Redux

(hennemusic) Monster Magnet have issued a lyric video for the song "Watch Me Fade", which is a track from their forthcoming album, "Cobras And Fire (The Mastermind Redux)."

Due October 9, the project sees the band present a sonic overhaul their 2010 album, "Mastermind", much as they did when they completely rearranged and boosted 2013's "Last Patrol" for its reissue as "Milking The Stars: A Re-imagining Of Last Patrol."

"'Watch Me Fade' features one of my favorite musical combinations: heavy, old school organ and fuzz guitar," says frontman Dave Wyndorf. "When I hear that sound I want to sing like some mad preacher. The lyrics started out as a love song but wound up being a paranoid rant about living in the 21st century. I'm sure somebody out there can relate, and ... it's only 3 minutes and 6 seconds which has to be some kind of record for Monster Magnet. Rock on."

"Watch Me Fade" follows the album's lead track, "Mastermind '69". "With Cobras And Fire I wanted to present these songs in a much stranger and dirtier atmosphere," adds Wyndorf. "Less 'classic rock' and more... well, I'd guess I'd call it a deranged fusion of garage-psych, fuzz punk and movie soundtrack music.

"It's almost completely re-recorded (with the bulk of the guitar and bass playing by co-producer Phil Caivano) and as in Milking The Stars I've added organ, piano, sitars and more to flesh out a completely new sound for these tunes." Check out the new song here.
