Space Probe Taurus to Release Mondo Satan in April

space probe taurus

Originally announced almost a full year ago for a Summer 2014 release on  Ripple, the second album from Swedish heavy rockers Space Probe TaurusMondo Satan, has now been given an April 28 arrival date from the label. The four-piece, who trace their roots back to the early ’90s, released their first, self-titled long-player through Buzzville Records in 2008, and so yeah, it’s been a minute. One can’t help but wonder when Mondo Satan was actually recorded, but I guess that’s what liner notes are for finding out.

To whet groove appetites — groovepetites? nah… — the PR wire has seen fit to unveil “The Iguana” as the first audio to come from the album, and it comes accompanied by announcement of the release date. Apparently the first run of CDs has already sold out on preorder (and here I thought I was the last person on the planet who gave a crap about the format), but one imagines more are in the works. If you dig, then dig:

Space Probe Taurus to release new album Mondo Satan this April via Ripple Music | Listen and stream ‘The Iguana’ now

This April, acclaimed hard-hitting acid rockers Space Probe Taurus congregate with fellow psych worshippers Ripple Music to release their latest foray into the world of biker-flicks, lysergic rock ‘n’ roll and feral fuzz.

Ladies and gentlemen, may we present for your listening pleasure ‘The Iguana’, taken from their soon to be unleashed new album Mondo Satan.

Originally formed as Snake Machine in 1992 it wasn’t until a name change and shortening of their songs in ’97 that the band settled into doing what they do best; preaching the gospel of dirty garage rock. Swedish style.

Often compared to the likes of Mudhoney, The Stooges, MC5 and Blue Cheer – the latter of whom SPT paid tribute to with a ripping cut of ‘Second Time Around’ on Black Widow Records’ Blue Explosion – their music is influenced by late ’60s psych rock and low-budget B-movies like Psychomania and Angels From Hell. A dual obsession that quickly led on to the band contributing music to the 2005 “snuff documentary” Actress Apocalypse and revenge thriller I Am Vengeance in 2012.

Mondo Satan is the band’s follow up to their self-titled debut album from 2008 and will be released worldwide via Ripple Music on 28th April 2015.
