MONSTER MAGNET's new album, "Monolithic Baby", will be released in the U.S. in March, according to a posting on the band's official web site.As previously reported, "Monolithic Baby" (view cover here) is due on February 16 through SPV. A single containing the tracks "Unbroken (Hotel Baby)" and a cover version of the VELVET UNDERGROUND classic "Venus In Furs", was released last month. The follow-up to 2001's "God Says No" was produced by Scott Humphrey (ROB ZOMBIE, SPINESHANK, ANDREW W.K.) and marks the group's first release with bassist Jim Baglino (LORD STERLING). Two complete tracks — "Slut Machine" and "Supercruel" — from "Monolithic Baby" can be heard in streaming Real Audio via the German Metal Hammer web site. Two more tracks will be added to the page every week between now and the album's release date. The band, who recently replaced drummer Micheal Wildwood (ex-CHROME LOCUST) with Bob Pantella (ex-RAGING SLAB), have lined up an extensive tour of Europe during late February-early April. Support at all dates will come from Sweden's THE QUILL and Norwegian rock 'n' rollers GLUECIFER.
