Big Head Todd & the Monsters to release new album

Big Head Todd and The Monsters announce the release of their brand new studio album, Rocksteady, due July 20 on Big Records through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group. In support of Rocksteady, Big Head Todd and The Monsters will hit the road for a sprawling summer tour, including big plays at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, San Francisco’s Fillmore Auditorium and others.

Rocksteady, their eighth studio album, offered the band a chance to return to its grassroots beginnings and an opportunity to draw on a surprising body of influences. The album cuts across a broad swath of stylistic terrain. The first single, “Beautiful,” is off to a great start at Triple A radio and is already in rotation at almost 30 stations including early champions like KBCO in Denver and WTTS in Indianapolis.

“It’s a soul/Caribbean record that rocks,” Mohr says. “We almost went out of our way to take all the rock out of it, but it really rocks. It’s the very first album we’ve ever done that’s cohesive. It makes a difference, in terms of this album standing out from our other albums.”
