    MICHAEL MONROE - Blackout States

    MICHAEL MONROE – hugely influential front-man, force of nature, multi-instrumentalist and revered rock ‘n’ roll icon – releases new studio album, Blackout States, on October 16th 2015 via Spinefarm Records; this 13 track outing, produced by Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Nomads, etc.) in Gothenburg, Sweden, and mixed by Petri Majuri in Helsinki, Finland, is the follow-up to Horns And Halos – a Finnish chart-topper in 2013.

    With Blackout States, Monroe’s current touring and recording outfit – 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) – provide strong creative support for a ground-breaking artist whose reputation continues to flourish, with many of rock‘n’roll’s most noted performers (including Dave Grohl and Slash) citing his unwavering drive and three-decade-plus career as a genuine source of inspiration.

    Indeed, when Slash headlines the Ice Hall in Helsinki on May 28th, Monroe will be the invited Special Guest, opening the show in front of thousands of fans; after that, he heads across to London to play the Camden Rocks Festival on May 30th – this one-off UK appearance (at Camden Proud) will be filmed by celebrated videographer/ photographer Ville Juurikkala as part of the video for the first single from Blackout States.

    As with Horns And Halos, the new recordings see Monroe both toasting the future and honouring the past, occasionally giving the nod to glam punk pioneers, Hanoi Rocks, the group he forged his name with in the early-to mid-’80s.

    Says Monroe: “I’m extremely excited about our new album, 'Blackout States’. 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 has a number of festival appearances locked into place for the spring / summer, with further international touring plans to be announced shortly.
