Iconic Nick Oliveri-fronted stoner punk trio Mondo Generator team up with Invisible Oranges to present their forceful seventh studio album »We Stand Against You« in its entirety ahead of its release this Friday 13th October on Heavy Psych Sounds.
“The darkest and most personal record Nick Oliveri has ever made. (…) A lean and mean barrage of rage-fuelled rock, an unapologetically raw listen.” – Metal Hammer Magazine
“Big barraging d-beats, even scuzzier guitars, and escalating tempos — Mondo Generator’s quick-thinking mix of punk energy and mind-blurring stoner sonics is especially furious this time around.” – Invisible Oranges
“Highly aggressive, unrestrained yet to the point, then it claps and someone should call the emergency doctor.” – Visions Magazin

Three years after the triumph of their comeback album »Fuck It«, the unstoppable trio of Nick Oliveri (ex-Kyuss and Queens Of The Stone Age), Mike Pygmie (John Garcia, You Know Who) and Mike Amster (Nebula) returns louder than ever with their fiery seventh album »We Stand Against You«. Described by Oliveri as their “heaviest and most brutal album to date”, this sonic A-bomb is a fuck-them-all statement, nine punk-charged missiles propelled by sharp riffing and fire-driven drumming that will induce severe whiplashes and a wide grin on each listener’s face. Crank the volume up and raise your fists against authority and all forms of oppression as Mondo Generator deliver their most cathartic record to date!
“»We Stand Against You« is nine songs of fire, fury and angst! Some of them reflect my personal thoughts, some 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,” comments Nick Oliveri.

Mondo Generator was formed in 1997 by Nick Oliveri, also known for founding the legendary stoner rock band Kyuss and playing in Queens Of The Stone Age. Initially intended as a solo/side project, the classic »Cocaine Rodeo« album was recorded that same year, but shelved until Southern Lord Records released 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 European label 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«.
Since its inception, 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 guitars (who joined in 2012) and Mike Amster on drums, and has been relentlessly unleashing their rock’n’roll wrath on international stages since then.
Mondo Generator is:
Nick Oliveri – Bass & Vocals
Mike Pygmie – Guitars
Mike Amster – Drums
