Space-rock frontrunners Monster Magnet will hit the road in mid-April to support their new album, God Says No, and they're taking Sunset Strip act Buckcherry and techno-minded metalheads Professional Murder Music along for the ride.
The tri-band battalion is scheduled to march across the U.S. beginning on April 15 in Old Bridge, New Jersey, according to a label spokesperson, and the six-week jaunt will keep the bands touring through the end of May.
Monster Magnet are high on the heels of God Says No's first single, "Heads Explode," which has been rising up rock radio charts in both Billboard and Radio & Records with a bullet, according to the trade magazines' latest reports.
Produced by lead singer Dave Wyndorf and Matt Hyde (Porno for Pyros), God Says No was originally scheduled for a late 2000 release, but was pushed back so as not to compete with big albums by labelmates U2 and Limp Bizkit (see "Monster Magnet: 'God Says No' Until Next Year"). The LP now carries a March 27 street date.
With the momentum of the single "Ridin'" at their backs, Buckcherry are touring in support of their second album, Time Bomb, due on March 27 (see "Buckcherry Take Time Out From Tour To Shoot Video"). Professional Murder Music, meanwhile, will unveil their self-titled debut in May, according to their spokesperson.
