Monster Magnet 2020 tour
Monster Magnet’s David Wyndorf

    Hard rockers Monster Magnet are hitting the road this spring to celebrate their seminal 1998 album, Powertrip. The “Celebration of Powertrip” tour begins in late March and spans much of North America, with Nebula and Silvertomb supporting the trek.

    The month-long jaunt starts on March 20th at Elsewhere in Brooklyn, New York, and heads west across the continent, looping back down and ending back on the East Coast at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey, on April 18th.

    Monster Magnet’s setlist will include selections from Powertrip, which channeled the band’s stoner rock leanings through tighter, more diverse songs, including the band’s bar jukebox staple “Space Lord” and the title track “Powertrip”. The presence of frontman Dave Wyndorf is particularly memorable on the album, with his bombastic lyrics and snarling vocals upfront and uncompromising.

    The band garnered a larger audience with Powertrip, and the success of its singles sent the album to No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. It was certified gold by the RIAA on January 25, 1999, and remains Monster Magnet’s most visible release and their commercial breakthrough.

    Wyndorf discussed Powertrip during a 2018 episode of the Consequence of Sound podcast Kyle Meredith With … , which can be heard below.
