Monsterworks will issue their new album, Overhaul, on August 26 through Eat Lead and Die Music.
The album will be available as a download and 180g gatefold vinyl signed by the band with lyrics.
A cut off that record — “Trail of the Sentient” — follows at the end of this post.
Says vocalist and guitarist Jon had this to say about the themes surrounding the album:
“This is our follow up to Universe from earlier this year. It was hard to go thematically vaster than the Universe, so we took a step back and started looking at mankind and civilization itself. Overhaul is effectively about the change we have to go through as a species in the hope of avoiding annihilation. There are definitely some common themes being explored that started to emerge in the last album; mostly about projecting where we will ultimately end up by the time the Universe ends in a few trillion trillion years or so. This side of it was inspired by an Asimov short story: ‘The Last Question.’”
The very gifted James Plotkin handled the album’s mastering.
Now, behold — “Trial of the Sentient.”
