Northwestern U.S. stoner rock gurus MOS Generator, who recently inked a deal with Listenable Records, have announced that their forthcoming album will be entitled "Electric Mountain Majesty." The band's first release since joining the Listenable Records roster, "Electric Mountain Majesty" is scheduled for a Spring 2014 release.
Plans are currently being laid for a European tour in May. To give fans a taste of what "Electric Mountain Majesty" has to offer, MOS Generator and Listenable Records are now streaming the album's title track. Listen to it below. MOS Generator guitarist/vocalist Tony Reed comments on the new song:
"Electric Mountain Majesty" was riffed out and recorded in about 15 minutes. Shawn and I did a demo of it and when i sat down and started to work on it the next day i realized that the drum track on this demo was killer! It had all of the fire and expression that Shawn would have live. I tracked the guitars and performed the vocals over the course of the next day and here it is. Our love for heavy rock, metal, and melody all come together in this tune."
"Electric Mountain Majesty" was recorded at HeavyHead Recording Co. in Port Orchard, Wash. and was produced, mixed and mastered by T. Dallas Reed. Track listing for "Electric Mountain Majesty" is as follows:
Beyond the Whip
Nothing Left but Night
Enter the Fire

Listenable Records has inked a deal with Northwest U.S. stoner rock gurus Mos Generator. The band is currently working on a new record, which is scheduled for a spring 2014 release on Listenable Records. Mos Generator will tour Europe in support of the album in May.
The new material is said to be stretching the core sound of the band into some new and interesting directions. Guitarist/vocalist Tony Reed comments, "We always try and push the heavy rock sound into other areas. Sometimes it's forced and sometimes we are letting natural and honest influences enter the equation. On the new material we are letting ourselves be open to whatever comes along."
Mos Generator formed during the winter of 2000 in Port Orchard, WA from the ashes of a ten year off & on collaboration between it's three members, all of which are long time veterans of road and studio. The need to strip down to the basics of hard rock was apparent from the start and continues to be the foundation for all the bands recent material. Mos Generator have released five studio albums, a retrospective album, and a live album on such labels as Roadburn, Small Stone, Ripple, Nasoni, and Lay Bare.
Touring has been just as important to the profile of the band as making records has. Over the years Mos Generator has shared the stage with many great heavy rock bands and in March of 2013 they did a 26-date European tour with Saint Vitus, opening up a whole new fan base to the Mos Generator sound. On stage the band defines the word "chemistry". Revolving their sound around swagger and groove while improvising just enough to keep the songs feeling fresh from night to night...sometimes with interesting results. More...
