MONKS OF DOOM (FEATURING MEMBERS OF CAMPER VAN BEETHOVEN AND COUNTING CROWS) TO RELEASE THEIR NEW ALBUM THE BRONTË PIN MARCH 23RD VIA PITCH-A-TENT RECORDS
FIRST ALBUM OF NEW STUDIO MATERIAL FROM THIS ART/PSYCH/PROG ROCK COLLECTIVE IN 25 YEARS!
MONKS OF DOOM UNVEILS NEW TRIPPY VIDEO FOR THEIR INSTRUMENTAL TRACK “DUAT! DUAT!”
Victor Krummenacher, Greg Lisher, Chris Pedersen (all from Camper Van Beethoven) and David Immerglück (Counting Crows) collectively known as Monks of Doom, are set to release their first album of all new material since 1993’s Forgery in the Spring of 2018. Recorded over a several years beginning in 2009, The Brontë Pincontinues the Monks’ spontaneous forays into the worlds of improvised music, adventurous instrumental work, dystopian paranoia and mind melting psychedelia. Recorded and mixed by Bruce Kaphan (American Music Club, David Byrne, Chris Isaak, The Black Crowes), the album simply picked up where the Monks left off in 2005 with their album of covers, What’s Left For Kicks? By measures more aggressive and more laid back than previous recordings, The Brontë Pin continues in the grand tradition of this exceptional yet reclusive group of musicians, melding myriad influences into a virtuosity hard to define in the world of current music: The Monks fail to fit into any particular indie rock marketing term. They remain untamed, oblique and defiant. They simply are Monks of Doom.
Monks of Doom’s The Brontë Pin will be available March 23, 2018 on CD, digital and streaming formats via Pitch-A-Tent Records. To pre-order the CD go to: http://www.monksofdoom.com/music.
