the mother lode for those who crave maximum psychedelic overload” Entertainment Weekly

World famous rock band MONSTER MAGNET will release its long-awaited new album
Mastermind on October 26. Today, AOL Music's Noisecreep premieres the brand new
MONSTER MAGNET music video – for the album‟s roll out single “Gods and Punks”.  

     The “Gods and Punks” video was directed by Nathan "Karma" Cox (Queens of the Stone
Age, Linkin Park, HIM)
and tells the story of “a Super Villain down on his luck” whose “life's
mission is to destroy the planet” trying to find a way to make his way back to “respectable evil
genus status.”  The clever, stylized video boils with a cinematic resonance and underlying social
statement about “corporate takeovers and the current political climate” all to the soundtrack of the
sardonic rock n' roll of MONSTER MAGNET.  "Mr. Cox‟s savvy take on life in the "Me, Me, Me"
21st century by way the of the superhero  metaphor is nothing less than genius,” commented
MONSTER MAGNET frontman Dave Wyndorf.  “I stand in awe."

     MONSTER MAGNET's Mastermind is available for pre-order in a variety of bundles. The album's
cover artwork is designed by Invisible Creature (Wolfmother, Chris Cornell, Foo Fighters).

     "I'm extremely proud of this new album," says Wyndorf. "It's a big, beefy ball of demented
anthems and power rock. The music itself is exaggerated and muscular; like classic rock gone
insane!  Giant hooks, giant sounds. The rockers are direct and intense. The ballads; trippy and
strange. It's guitar heaven."
