US stoner punk icons Mondo Generator (fronted by ex-Kyuss and Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri) return louder than ever with their seventh studio album »We Stand Against You« this October 13th on Heavy Psych Sounds. Blast their new single »Death March« now exclusively on Decibel Magazine!
About the »Death March« single and new album, frontman and bassist Nick Oliveri comments: »Death March« is for everyone who refuses to back down, lay down, bend over to authority. We stand against… WE STAND AGAINST YOU! Nine songs of fire, fury and angst! Some of the Songs are reflecting my personal thoughts and some songs are about family and close friends dying or committing suicide and some are about my experience with the corona lockdowns. This is a record of real emotion and not for the weak.”

Mondo Generator is unstoppable. Rewind back to 2020, the world had suddenly come to an end while the band just hit Europe to present their first album in eight years, »Fuck It«. Live scenes across the globe got put into an artificial coma for a mere two years, yet the raw power of that vibrant 14-tracker resonated so strongly with the fans that revenge needed to be taken. Three years later, the hard-working trio of Nick Oliveri, Mike Pygmie and Mike Amster returns louder and fiercer than ever, amped up by countless shows across Europe and North America. Because there is no better fuel than hunger and frustration, their seventh studio album »We Stand Against You« is nothing but pure MAYHEM. Described by Nick Oliveri as their “heaviest album to date”, this cathartic sonic A-bomb is a fuck-them-all statement, nine vicious punk-charged missiles that will induce severe whiplashes and a wide grin on each listener’s face. Raise your fists and crank it up!
Heavy Psych Sounds also announced the vinyl and CD repress of Nick Oliveri’s Uncontrollable debut »Leave Me Alone« – a one-off solo project initially released in 2014 – on October 13th with preorders available at this location.

Mondo Generator was formed in 1997 by former Queens of the Stone Age and Kyuss bassist Nick Oliveri. Initially intended as a solo/side project, the classic »Cocaine Rodeo« album was recorded that same year, but shelved until the Southern Lord label released it and its unique brand of criminal insanity to widespread acclaim and horror in the summer of 2000. Following several full-lengths, EPs and a live DVD, a solo acoustic career and heavy touring schedules with Kyuss Lives!, Vista Chino and Mondo Generator, Nick Oliveri signed to Italian powerhouse Heavy Psych Sounds in 2017 for the release of a series of Oliveri vocal-fronted recordings titled »N.O. Hits At All« as well as the »The Best Of Nick Oliveri’s Mondo Generator«.
While Mondo Generator has welcomed contributions from notable members of the Californian rock scene over the years such as Josh Homme, Dave Catching, Brant Bjork, Dave Grohl or Joey Castillo, the lineup officially stabilized in 2018 around Nick Oliveri on bass and vocals, Mike Pygmie on guitar (who joined in 2012) and Mike Amster on drums. In 2020, the band released their first album in eight years, »Fuck It«, on Heavy Psych Sounds and haven’t stopped touring Europe and North America since then. Get ready for their next sonic misdemeanor »We Stand Against You«, to be unleashed this fall on October 13th through Heavy Psych Sounds.
Mondo Generator is:
Nick Oliveri – Bass & Vocals
Mike Pygmie – Guitars
Mike Amster – Drums
