MONSTER MAGNET To Perform Entire 'Dopes To Infinity' Album

CrankItUp.se conducted an interview with MONSTER MAGNET mainman Dave Wyndorf at this year's edition of the Getaway Rock festival, which is taking place July 7-9, 2011 in Gvle, Sweden. You can now watch the chat below.

When asked about the band's upcoming tour of Sweden, Wyndorf said, "We're coming back in November to do 'Dopes To Infinity'. It's an album of ours that came out in '95. And we're gonna start doing performances of individual albums, and this one's gonna be 'Dopes'."

Regarding whether fans can expect any new music from MONSTER MAGNET in the near future, Wyndorf said, "We just released a record called 'Mastermind' about six months ago, and that'll probably go for another year. And then I've got 10 or 11 songs that I wrote in the last couple of months, and we'll see if that'll be on the next record. Since I went off the drugs, I started writing three times as many songs."

"Mastermind" sold around 3,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The band's previous effort, "4-Way Diablo", opened with 1,800 units back in November 2007.

Available on Austria's Napalm Records, "Mastermind" was released as a regular CD with poster, limited digibook with two bonus tracks with poster and limited-edition box containing the digibook CD, USB stick with MONSTER MAGNET logo and exclusive video material (including a Dave Wyndorf interview from August 2010), wallpapers, ringtones, 17-track Napalm sampler and much more.

The "Mastermind" cover artwork was designed by Invisible Creature (WOLFMOTHER, CHRIS CORNELL, FOO FIGHTERS).
