Finnish rocker Michael Monroe is premiering the video for “Old King’s Road”, the lead single from his forthcoming album, “Blackout States.”
Due October 9, Monroe’s 10tth studio effort was produced by Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Nomads) in Gothenburg, Sweden and mixed by Petri Majuri in Helsinki, Finland.
Monroe recorded the follow-up to 2013’s “Horns And Halos” with his touring band – bassist Sami Yaffa (ex-Hanoi Rocks/New York Dolls), guitarist Steve Conte (ex-New York Dolls/Company Of Wolves), guitarist Rich Jones (ex-Black Halos/Amen) and drummer Karl Rockfist (ex-Chelsea Smiles/Danzig).
“I’m extremely excited about our new album, Blackout States,” says Monroe. “It has all the ingredients of a perfect rock ‘n’ roll record – strong melodic songs with great meaningful lyrics that defy all clichés, delivered with a punky, ballsy attitude by a killer band.
“I highly recommend ‘Blackout States’ to anyone who’s even a little bit interested in what real, authentic, high energy rock ‘n’ roll at its best sounds like today.”
Monroe will play a co-headlining tour with Sweden’s Hardcore Superstar this fall along with some UK dates with Alice Cooper.
