What do Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens Of The Stone Age), Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures), Happy Tom (Turbonegro) and Marc Diamond (The Dwarves) all have in common? Aside from the fact they all play in some of the best bands to ever grace the earth, they all feature on the brand new single from Los Angeles band Mondo Generator.
The first taste of the new album from the band, which is due for release in July, is the track "Dog Food", with its release to coincide with the beginning of the band's upcoming tour.
Over the last year, band founder Nick Oliveri and fellow member Hoss, alongside producer Bradley Cook have been working on Mondo Generator's fourth full length album 'Time To Destroy'. During the recording process they have enlisted a number of guests to make an appearance, "Dog Food" is the first taste of who is featured on the album. With Marc Diamond on guitar duties, Happy Tom has laid down some bass tracks, while Dave Grohl provides the drum tracks and Nick Oliveri delivers his trade mark vocals.
With a fresh Mondo Generator line up in place, the band kicked off a world tour in Australia late May before heading to Europe for shows across June and July which includes both festival and club shows. They'll hit home territory for a US tour in August and September.
"Dog Food" will be released as a limited edition 7" as well as in an extended cd/digital format.
