The highly-anticipated record was produced by Chips Kiesbye (The Hellacopters, Nomads, etc.) in Gothenburg, Sweden, and mixed by Petri Majuri in Helsinki, Finland.

Select few are the ones born to rock and fewer still survive to be called seasoned rock warriors. The Michael Monroe band features nothing but the latter, consisting of bassist Sami Yaffa (Hanoi RocksNew York Dolls), guitarists Steve Conte (New York DollsWilly DeVille) &  Rich Jones (The Black HalosAmen) and drummer Karl “Rockfist” Rosqvist (The Chelsea SmilesDanzig).

On the new album, the legendary vocalist comments: “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.”

The album release is preceded by the launch of the first single, “Old King´s Road” (out in all digital platforms September 4th) and the accompanying video,  directed by Monroe’s trusted man Ville Juurikkala (“Stained Glass Heart”, “Ballad Of The Lower East Side”).

MICHAEL MONROE will be hitting the road this Fall for a co-headlining tour with Sweden’s sleazemongers Hardcore Superstar and some very special UK shows with Alice Cooper. Dates below.
