Mos Generator Announces New Album 'Shadowlands'


Long-running Washington-based heavy rock trio Mos Generator will release a new full-length on May 11th (EU) and May 18th (USA) via Listenable Records. Titled "Shadowlands," the eight-track studio offering was recorded in three sessions -- June 2017, November 2017, and January 2018 -- at the HeavyHead Recording Company in Port Orchard, Washington and comes swathed in the cover art of Adam Burke (Pilgrim, Satan's Satyrs, Hooded Menace, Artificial Brain et al) (check it out a the bottom). Pre-order information will be revealed in the coming weeks.

"Right from the opening song, 'Shadowlands' is a record that, to me, feels more honest than our previous releases," relays founding guitarist/vocalist/principal songwriter Tony Reed. "On this record, I introduce many other styles that I enjoy but they are intertwined so subtly that it doesn't interrupt the classic Mos Generator sound. That is a balance I've been looking for over the last few albums and I think the presence of (drummer) Jon Garrett and (bassist) Sean Booth have a lot to do with achieving that balance. It's a heavy rock record that breaths and if I had to describe it further I would say it mixes '70s style heavy rock, progressive rock, and also has some weird '80s and '90s underground rock nuances."
