Monster Magnet premiere Phil Mucci video for The Duke

Monster Magnet have issued a video for “The Duke” as a preview to “Milking The Stars, A Reimagining Of Last Patrol”, due November 18.

The animated clip was directed by Phil Mucci (Pig Destroyer, Opeth, Stone Sour).

"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,” says Dave Wyndorf. “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,” he continued. “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!"

“Milking The Stars, A Reimagining Of Last Patrol” sees new interpretations of some of the material featured on 2013’s “Last Patrol” album, rounded out with four new songs and two live tracks.
