Northwest U.S. stoner rock gurus MOS GENERATOR have inked a deal with Listenable Records. The band's new album is scheduled for a spring 2014 release. A European tour in support of the CD will follow in May.
According to a press release, MOS GENERATOR's new material is "stretching the core sound of the band into some new and interesting directions." Guitarist/vocalist Tony Reed comments: "We always try and push the heavy rock sound into other areas. Sometimes it's forced and sometimes we are letting natural and honest influences enter the equation. On the new material, we are letting ourselves be open to whatever comes along."
MOS GENERATOR formed during the winter of 2000 in Port Orchard, Washington from the ashes of a ten-year off-and-on collaboration between its three members, all of which are longtime veterans of road and studio. The need to strip down to the basics of hard rock was apparent from the start and continues to be the foundation for all the band's recent material.
MOS GENERATOR has released five studio albums, a retrospective set, and a live album on such labels as Roadburn, Small Stone, Ripple, Nasoni and Lay Bare.
Over the years, MOS GENERATOR has shared the stage with many great heavy rock bands and in March of 2013 they completed a 26-date European tour with SAINT VITUS.
