Mondo Generator Announce Fall 2015 European Tour

Sometimes you just gotta get out, and get right. Following up on a summer solo acoustic run and a US stint with Peter Pan Speedrock, Nick Oliveri (you fucking know who he is, you don’t need the list of bands) will be taking Mondo Generator on the road in Europe starting on Nov. 21 at Speedfest in gorgeous, lives-in-my-dreams Eindhoven. The band has gone through a notable lineup shift with guitarist Ian Taylor departing and with the swap-out of drummer Hoss Wright for Jeff Bowman, but this new trio incarnation of the band has entered writing mode, and it looks like they’ll have a follow-up in the works next year for 2013’s Hell Comes to Your Heart. Oliveri, of course, also released the solo album, Leave Me Alone (streamed here), last year under the working band moniker Nick Oliveri’s Uncontrollable.

The PR wire fills in on the latest:

Mondo Generator announce dates for 2015 Fall European Tour and enter writing mode for new album.

Mondo Generator is: Nick Oliveri – Bass/Lead Vocals, Mike Pygmie – Guitar/Backing Vocals, Jeff Bowman – Drums

Southern California based hybrid metal/punk veterans Mondo Generator return to the Old World for a three week long tour across the European continent in late November that begins at Speedfest in Eindhoven, Netherlands and concludes in Paris, France in December. Having just recently finished a US tour with Peter Pan Speedrock, Mondo Generator big chief Nick Oliveri has this to say about their return:

“I feel great knowing that Mondo Generator is returning to Europe a faster, heavier machine than ever before. Expect a slam pit and we expect you to be in it.”

Mondo Generator recently had a lineup shift with the departure of both longtime guitarist Ian Taylor from the fold and drummer Hoss Wright. They’ve recently recruited and welcomed desert native and long time friend Jeff Bowman (Unsound/Uncontrollable) on the drums and are currently in writing mode for their fifth full length. Europe has always been good to Mondo Generator and this return marks their first trip back since 2013’s European run in support of Hell Comes To Your Heart.
