MONSTER MAGNET will release a special limited-edition digipack version of their new album, "Monolithic Baby", featuring a bonus DVD. Both versions of the CD (which will feature different artwork) are scheduled for release in Europe on February 16, 2004 through SPV Records. A single containing the tracks "Unbroken (Hotel Baby)" and a cover version of the VELVET UNDERGROUND classic "Venus In Furs", will arrive on January 19.
