With the 17th September set for the release of MONSTEREO’s latest studio outing, Karisma Records have revealed details of “In the Hollow of a Wave”, the third full-length album the Bergen Rockers.
Known for over a decade as a band that serves up energetic rock songs, MONSTEREO have come up with an album that is by far their heaviest to date, with a sound that is richer and broader than anything they have ever produced. With more keyboards, synths, and a variety of guitars, “In the Hollow of a Wave” is, according to the band, an album of filled with “teeth-grinding riffs, big choruses and rock-solid grooves”.
And, as of today, fans get their first taste of “In the Hollow of a Wave”, with the release of “A Sudden Rush” the first single from the album, which, according to MONSTEREO, is:
An all out, in-your-face rock and roll banger. Perfect for a late summer night drenched in beer and drunken conversations, or a 50/50 strawberry daquiri at a music festival. This is a classic 1970s rock tune, with blazing guitars and a speaker-ripping groove. A homage to legends such as AC/DC and Grand Funk Railroad, topped with a smidge of inspiration from local produce in Bergen’s Electric Eye and The Megaphonic Thrift
“A Sudden Rush” is available to download or stream from a variety of services at karismarecords.fanlink.to/Monstereo_ASuddenRush
