Stoner Rock Shamans MONSTER MAGNET Offer Their Take on Dust’s “Learning To Die”
New Covers Album, A Better Dystopia, Out May 21, 2021 via Napalm Records
Napalm Records is pleased to present the next chapter in psychedelic rock icons MONSTER MAGNET’s rabbit hole deep dive, A Better Dystopia (out May 21, 2021): a delightfully (and psychotically) curated collection of 60’s and 70’s proto-metal and late-era psych obscurities covered by the heavy New Jersey legends themselves.
While the album marks a new frontier for MONSTER MAGNET as their first covers record, this is not your typical set of standards released to pass time. A Better Dystopia sees the band pay homage to some of their favorite songs of all time, while reflecting on the paranoia, dystopia and revolution of both now – and then.
Today, fans can get a second glimpse into the album with a video of the band’s cover of classic Dust track, “Learning To Die.”
Of the song selection, frontman Dave Wyndorf says:
“‘Learning To Die’ blew me away when I was 15 and it still blows me away.
Man, do I LOVE to sing this song. Dust was one of the greats.”
