2013 saw the release of Monster Magnet's latest album "Last Patrol," and now comes "Milking the Stars," a reimagining of "Last Patrol" due out November 17th through Napalm Records.
Today Monster Magnet also releases a video for the song "The Duke".
The band worked with director Phil Mucci (Pig Destroyer, Opeth, Stone Sour) on the very NSFW video. Vocalist Dave Wyndorf comments:
"When I was a kid I'd sit in my room with my eyes closed, listening to albums and dreaming up spectacular images and stories to go along with the music. Ah, nothing beats youthful imagination.
"Fast forward to today and Monster Magnet has done plenty of music videos and try as I have, none of them ever replicated that particular hallucinatory fever that gripped me when I was young. That is until now. Phil Mucci has captured the 'science fiction noir' elements of Last Patrol and Milking The Stars and mainlined them into 'The Duke.' And I didn't have to do anything but provide the music and make a few notes. Oh, and have a few (extremely enjoyable) conversations with him on the phone.
"Mr. Mucci gets it. And the fact he's so talented means we all get to enjoy this bad-ass piece of 'fever dream pulp cinema'. Something tells me Phil used to listen to albums with his eyes closed when he was a kid too!"
